FAQ

  • What exactly does 'vintage' mean?
    Vintage is a term given to items that hold nostalgic value and are usually higher quality. Items over one hundred years in age are considered antiques, these are typically more expensive and sought after. Although there are no exact 'rules' for vintage clothing, items that are at least twenty years old are considered vintage.
  • What does buying vintage have to do with sustainability?
    They have everything to do with each other! Buying vintage clothing saves gorgeous, high-quality pieces from ending up in the trash. You also support small businesses instead of large, fast fashion retailers that produce trendy and cheaply made clothing. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, "Landfills received 11.3 million tons of municipal solid waste textiles in 2018. This was 7.7 percent of all municipal solid waste landfilled". Too much clothing is thrown away each year, so I've made it my mission to promote sustainability while selling one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.
