GOT QUESTIONS ?
What's considered vintage?
Technically, any clothing 20 years old and older is considered vintage. We carry items from the 50's to early 90's. Most vintage clothing have been previously worn and therefore will show some signs of age or wear. Since most vintage items have been previously loved they may not be 100% free of imperfections.
Is there a vintage condition rating guide?
Yes, each item is rated and tagged with our rating.
Why buy vintage clothing?
- Buying one of a kind items cannot be found at every chain store. Let's face it. It can be embarrassing and unoriginal to wear the same thing as someone else.
- Vintage clothing is a 100% sustainable. Buying vintage reduces the amount of natural resources being used to produce new clothes. Manufacturing new clothes pollutes the environment with the emissions from factories, color dyes and chemical treatments on top of water usage to grow natural fibers. Disposable clothing has had disastrous effects on the environment and some with unsafe working conditions. Chain retailers are churning out clothes at a break neck rate.
- The quality of clothes made in the past used better techniques and materials than today. There was an emphasis on craftsmanship, detailing work was done by hand instead of a machine. Clothes back then had to last longer since people bought clothes infrequently as they do now.

VINTAGE SIZING & MEASUREMENT GUIDE
Vintage sizing varies drastically from modern day sizing. We never go by the sizing label on vintage clothes since measurements from the past differ greatly than modern sizes. Even modern day sizing operates on a different size scales. Body measurements help us determine proper fit. Use our simple Measurement Guide for help with measuring. You'll need to provide this information during the Style & Size Quiz.
