About Us

It all started with a quest. A noble quest to find a pair of sunglasses for a girl with vintage taste, a small budget and a thirst for cateyes. This girl longed for sunglasses that would not only protect her from the bright Australian sun but reflect her vintage style and be gentle on the wallet. Because let's face it, even if she could afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of designer sunglasses, they would most likely meet their doom, dismembered at the bottom of her handbag. More importantly, she wanted something different, something more than the ordinary. Her answer came to her in a pair of 'Glaring Glamour' sunglasses. But then she thought, who else might face this problem?

Supported by a team, Tessa Rickard is the founder of Catch a Thief.

Tessa‘s love for vintage began as a child living in a 150-year-old terrace house where every detail captured her imagination and developed a romantic sense of the past. Tessa now deals in Vintage Women’s and Children’s clothing at the Vintage Emporium in Tyabb http://www.thevintageshed.com.au/Vintage-Emporium while running Catch a Thief online from her home on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.
