CallMeCleverVintage From Rags to Vintage

Based in Seattle, Callmeclevervintage is a well curated collection of vintage finds. I got my start in fashion. I sold contemporary women's fashion and accessories for years, first as a sales rep and then owning my own store. I loved shopping for my customers and then creating a window display to tempt the customers in to the store. From there it was a natural step for me to move to a vintage online store.

Our Etsy shop appeals to like-minded people who love to repurpose and reuse rusty treasures from farms, estate sales, flea markets and auctions.

From Mid Century Eclectic to Rustic Farmhouse to Shabby Chic Cottage to Industrial Office, we love all things old which tell a story. We want people to wonder and ask, "Where did you find that?" What a great conversation starter! Buying for a vintage shop is ongoing lesson in history and that history being retold.


**Every morning when I walk my doggy (a King Charles Cavalier) I'm on the lookout for boxes and packaging and guess what? I often find stuff although sometimes it's a bit difficult to drag stuff home with the dog in tow but anyway, you should know that often time your item is packaged in recycled goods!

**We use eco friendly cleaning products and one of my favorite things we practice is NO DRYERS! All of our clothing items are mostly hand washed and then hung on on outdoor clothing line.

Find us here too!

    Hi I'm a wanna-be clothing designer. I simply love the fabrics of the 30s & 40s—mostly your everyday cotton dresses and workwear. That's my jam. Oh and check out my other shop where I sell vintage cookbooks.

Additional policies and FAQs
As all my items are vintage, please take into account their age and condition. Many are purchased from estate sales, so I cannot guarantee they will be pet-and smoke-free, that being said. I DO WASH EACH AND LINE DRY EACH AND EVERY ITEM. Please convo me if you have any questions about condition prior to purchase!

Because of the vintage nature of the items in this shop all sales are final. All the vintage items in my shop are sold in 'as is' condition. I do my best to describe all items accurately. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you need before purchasing any item.

Please remember that all my items have had previous owners and are subject to some wear. I will disclose anything extreme such as rips, tears, holes, soiled areas, etc. If I haven't disclosed something in the listing you can be sure that I am not aware of it. I will do my very best as I want you to have a good shopping experience and be happy with your purchase.
