Meet the Team
Janelle Best, Founder
Janelle Best is the founder of Desert Stars Vintage. She has a degree in visual arts and arts management. For the past 9 years, she has been a musician and front woman of the band Desert Stars. From a young age, she was obsessed with dumpster diving and thrifting for treasures, and collecting wild clothes for performances inspired the launch of her online vintage store. It was always her dream to create her own clothing line and now she has!
