About

The last several years selling vintage have been both exciting and a wonderful learning experience. It is always a thrill to sell to TV and movies; I have sold to Masters of Sex (famous black bra scenes), The Astronauts Wives and Mad Men (the final episode featured Don Draper walking around with one of my vintage Burberry raincoats!). I have sold to Award winning designers for the movies. Even sold Steve Madden shoes back to Steve Madden! One of the best experiences I had was styling the actors and providing props for the 1960s play, Raisin In the Sun, for a local production.

I love vintage, plain and simple. I realized I have always loved clothing and jewelry and lingerie and collectibles from the past. I guess it reminds me of my mom or my grandparents or things and days gone by. I like clothing and accessories that are different and unusual. I don't have the money to buy…

I love vintage, plain and simple. I realized I have always loved clothing and jewelry and lingerie and collectibles from the past. I guess it reminds me of my mom or my grandparents or things and days gone by. I like clothing and accessories that are different and unusual. I don't have the money to buy boutique items, so I search for vintage.

The construction and materials used "back in the day" are so far superior to anything I see today.

But I think what I love the most about vintage is that most pieces are unique. When I wear something vintage, I know that no one else will have that same piece on. It makes me feel special. I like feeling special, don't you?

There is nothing like vintage clothing that says feminine chic. Each piece that I purchase is a piece I would wear or use myself!

I certainly hope you enjoy my personally curated collection.
