About Us

 

At What Goes Around Comes Around, our mission is to curate a world-class luxury vintage experience.

What Goes Around Comes Around is a lifestyle. We believe that luxury craftsmanship and premier vintage should be revered, preserved and adored for years to come. Our goal is to create a sustainable company where the finest collection of pristine, pre-owned luxury and vintage pieces can find new homes.

 

Our Founders

What Goes Around Comes Around was founded in 1993 by Seth Weisser and Gerard Maione- two Syracuse University graduates who preferred vintage shopping over traditional retail. In the early 90s, the duo recognized that while traditional retailers were finding success with curated assortments and beautifully merchandised collections, there was nothing remotely similar in the world of vintage. An idea was born to create a space where vintage could have a point of view, with a commitment to authenticity and an elevated experience for the client.

 

From Victorian to pre-war to post-modern, Weisser and Maione’s acute attention to generational changes in fashion times and encyclopedic knowledge of fashion history helped create a curatorial source for museum-like collections that stretch across decades. Weisser and Maione’s vision and deep understanding of the vintage market has led What Goes Around Comes Around from its original New York City flagship store in SoHo to global expansion which includes a retail store in Beverly Hills, A second location in NYC, a presence within many leading retailers around the world, and a thriving e-commerce site.
