LINDSEY LEYLAND / CO-OWNER

Lindsey Leyland has had over 15 years of experience working in vintage retail, consignment, buying vintage inventory, large scale visual merchandising, curatorial duties, and arts management. Ms. Leyland has been involved with vintage retail since 2002, where she began buying for a small independent store in Pittsburgh, PA. In 2008 Leyland became manager at a local boutique called Lenny & Me in Chicago, IL. She has also being a constant addition to many local fashion productions and has assisted an established stylist with wardrobe and props on numerous large corporate photo shoots. It has be Lindsey’s dream to own a vintage clothing store since a very young age, and Kelly McLeod gave an eager girl a chance ten years ago when she first opened The Getup Vintage. Leyland has honed her skill over the years, and the passing of the torch from the original owner to the first employee is fitting.

KAYLAN MITCHELL / CO-OWNER

Kaylan Mitchell developed a love for vintage clothing at a young age. Her first pieces were purchased from former Getup Vintage owner Kelly McLeod, when Kelly was a salesperson at Lost and Found Vintage in Royal Oak, MI - and Kaylan was just a freshman in high school. Since then, Kaylan has been buying and selling vintage clothing and is well known for her eclectic fashion taste. While Lindsey was in Chicago, Kaylan was hired at The Getup in the interim - worlds collide! That aforementioned fashion taste has always been onstage front-and-center as she acted as wardrobe buyer and stylist for her musical projects and others, and has been a stylist for photo shoots, video shoots, and stage shows. Kaylan has also served as the House Manager of the Michigan Theater, a position which included daily record keeping, inventory, accounting, and employee management, which allowed her to hone her business skills that would be necessary for The Getup. Kaylan is a 2010 graduate of Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Media and Film Studies. Her future plans include returning to school to pursue a Masters in Accounting. She enjoys playing the cello and moonlights as a session musician on occasion.
