Nostalgia Vintage and Wellness is a juice bar and vintage clothing store located on Main Street.
Mattea Scott, the owner of Nostalgia Vintage and Wellness, said she lived in Los Angeles, California at one point and she knew there was a market for vintage clothing and got inspiration from there.
“Growing up, my mom took me all over the world. She taught English in other countries, so I was able to see a lot growing up, and then living in L.A., I know that there’s an entire market and like warehouses full of vintage clothing. I took inspiration from there and knew that Vermillion needed a place because I’m originally from here,” Scott said.
The vintage clothing in the store is imported from various places around the world but mainly sourced from Los Angeles, California.
The newest update to the shop is the Health Club Cafe which began a few weeks ago. The Cafe is a way for people to learn about health and wellness in other ways such as a smoothie or a juice.
“So originally, while the name Nostalgia Vintage and Wellness, kind of tells it’s like foreshadowing almost to a wellness part. So that’s what Health Club Cafe is,” Scott said. “We can do consultations and see if you have any problem areas, say you have acne or digestive issues, we can figure out something that might work through herbs, fruits and things like that.”
The Health Club Cafe includes many options such as the Chicory Root Latte and the Matcha Latte which allows customers to choose their preferred milk, sweetener and essences. The essences include lavender, rose petal, peppermint and vanilla.
Scott said she got the inspiration to add essences from flowers such as lavender and rose petals from her mother.
“My mom is an herbalist and she works with a lot of herbs and they are medicinal. So adding certain essences like different herbs or powders into your drinks and things like that actually gives you those health benefits. So, for example, rose petals are high in vitamin C so adding that gives you kind of the antioxidant through your body as well,” Scott said.
Scott receives local and globally sourced herbs, teas, sprays and serums that are prepared by herbalist Sarah Wells, Scott’s mother. Scott’s grandmother Mary Sorensen also works at Nostalgia Vintage and Wellness.
