Our story

Born from two collectors' passion in Philly's bustling markets, MerchVice evolved into a digital haven connecting unique sellers with avid treasure hunters.


Our Journey: From Passion to Platform

In the (near) vibrant heart of Philly, two avid collectors, Ed and Cheri, often wandered through the maze of street markets, searching for hidden gems. Cheri, a vintage poster enthusiast, and Ed, a connoisseur of rare pins, shared a vision: to bridge the gap between unique merchandise and passionate collectors.

While sifting through a stack of antique posters on a rainy afternoon, they found themselves engrossed in stories of vendors who struggled to find a broader audience for their wares. Meanwhile, collectors expressed frustration over the challenge of finding rare items and a trustworthy platform to buy them.

Recognizing this gap, the duo decided to take matters into their own hands. They envisioned a digital marketplace that would connect sellers with enthusiasts, offering a space where stories were just as important as transactions.

The idea for MerchVice was born.

Over countless cups of coffee and late-night brainstorming sessions, the website took shape. The goal was clear: to create an online sanctuary for sellers to showcase their unique items and for buyers to embark on a journey of discovery. This was not just a marketplace, but a community for those who appreciated the beauty of rare and exceptional merchandise.

Today, MerchVice stands as a testament to the idea that when passion meets platform, magic happens. We invite you to be a part of our story, to discover, to sell, and to celebrate the world of unique treasures.
