The Adventures of Vivant Vintage
Le Pants King and the Traveling Spectacular is the brain child of artist & entrepreneur Justin Pomerleau.
- 2011 - Pomerleau took to the streets of Boston, selling his vintage collection out of the cart he constructed to resemble a tiny house.
- 2012 - Tour De Pance started in the summer as Pomerleau toured the city, pulling his cart by tricycle.
By the fall, Pomerleau as Le Pants King and the Traveling Spectacular launched their first pop up shop in the Sowa Vintage Market.
- 2013 - A Spectacular Summer began to shape up as Le Pants King began traveling to events, vending at fests such as the StarLab Fest in Somerville, MA , Agewood Summer Solstice Festival in Amsterdam, NY & Wake Up The Earth Festival in Jamaica Plain, MA
In the spring Pomerleau was offered an opportunity to set up at the infamous Brimfield Antiques Show. Le Pants King and the Traveling Spectacular found its new home in Quaker Acres, Brimfield, MA
- 2014 - In only one short year The Traveling Spectacular grew to a 20’x70’ circus-style set up featuring not only Le Pants King, but other young entrepreneurs such as: Teenarena Records (NH), Spruce Vintage (Medford, MA) and The Trunk and Disorderly (Worcester, MA). Together, The Traveling Spectacular has quickly made an unforgettable impression on the Brimfield Antiques Show.
By the spring of 2014, Pomerleau had secured a space for a permanent set up in Lower Allston, MA.
Vivant Vintage opened its door on June 25th, 2014.
- 2015 - Pop Allston
- 2016 - Brimfield expanded and events continue
