About Us | Soaring Hawk Vintage

The Shop 
Soaring Hawk Vintage is an online-only retailer and personal brokerage service provider offering antiques, books, fine art, ephemera, and collectibles. In addition to online sales, allow us to discreetly broker the sale of your high value collectibles, fine art, or collections by utilizing our vast network of private collectors and market resources. As your personal broker, we can ease the stress of resale, by facilitating a confidential route to direct sale or by placing items at auction on your behalf. We specialize in antiquarian and rare books, a variety of fine art, vintage records, decorative collectibles, and vintage clothing. Every piece of inventory is hand selected and refreshed weekly, sourced throughout the historic Carolinas. If you’re an avid collector, you may be familiar with SHV from shopping eBay, Etsy, Amazon, or other marketplaces. Over the years, our clients have found they can rely on our commitment to detailed photos, clear descriptions, and excellent customer service. Our selections are photographed with the intent of delivering a near in-person buying experience. Understanding the nature of today’s “now society”, our orders ship out fast. As a full circle business, we are also diligent about making sure orders are professionally and safely packaged to arrive intact. These are just a few of the factors that set Soaring Hawk Vintage apart from other online retailers and dealers. We proudly serve a global client base of thousands of private collectors, prop masters, the theater and motion picture industry, interior designers, food staging professionals, and more. Soaring Hawk Vintage was originally founded in 2014 and has since evolved into a favorite of collectors on nearly every continent.
