Two friends on a mission to find cool junk!
We Blackbird girls have been collectors for our entire lives, and meeting each other was like long lost sisters meeting. Everything just clicked into place -- we understand each other so well! When one of us falls in love with a piece of junk, you can bet the other one is right there with her!
Opening our Etsy shop in 2010 was the beginning of our dream, because it gave us an outlet to share our cool finds with the rest of the world. We wanted a shop of our own, and Etsy allowed us to have a shop that was open to the world! Instead of passing up things that we found on our travels, we get to pass them on!
We've traveled far and wide, and we still never get tired of digging to find treasures. We write about our finds on our blog, Four and Twenty (http://blackbirdantiques.blogspot.com/), and we share what we learn along our journey.
The Blackbird Girls
We are the Blackbird girls -- two best friends, roomies, and business partners that are obsessed with finding cool junk.

Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage clothing doesn't fit like modern clothing, which is cut with a looser shape to fit more sizes. The construction techniques used in the past decades are very different from today's techniques. Vintage clothing is cut much closer to the body, and the fabrics may have less give. You should allow enough in the measurements to move comfortably while wearing your vintage garments. You should always wear vintage with care, and take the age of the garment into consideration.
Here is a link to the standard size chart that we reference: http://shop.alz.org/site/SizeChart.pdf
