Vintage Clothing - Casual, Classic and Couture

Collecting and selling vintage clothing always comes from a place of passion, whether it is about the fashion, about the history or about expressing yourself. It's often all of the above. Fab Gabs is a business that thrives because all of us have a passion for the eras, the history, the style, and our customers.

Wearing the past does not mean you are out of style. Quality vintage clothing is always relevant and fashionable, whatever the current trends may be. We believe that you can wear vintage every day if you wish, no matter what you do. A smart vintage blouse or sportcoat can be mixed with modern accessories for the workplace. Or you can go whole-hog and pair your clothing with the period-appropriate hat and shoes. When you choose vintage, however you wear it, you will stand out as being put together, tailored and unique.

Matching the right clothes to the person is our pleasure here at Fab Gabs. Lady or gent, whoever you are and whatever era calls to you, we are delighted to serve you.

    As a woman who wears vintage daily, I know the value of a little glamour in everyday life. I'm as passionate about connecting members of the vintage community with each other as I am about connecting the perfect 1940s frock with it's new owner.

Frequently asked questions
May I reserve an item or put an item on Layaway?

To serve you better, Layaway is available for items over $100. 30, 60 and 90 day terms are available, based on the value of the item(s) you are ordering. Items between $100 and 300.00 may be set up on a 30 day layaway, and items over $300 may be put on 60 day extended layaway plan if desired. Items over $1000 may be put on a 90 day plan. Layaway cannot be combined with sale prices, coupons or other discounts. Customers may put more than one item on Layaway, but the prices cannot be combined to extend the length of the layaway.

There is a 2-hour waiting window on new listings before they may be put on Layaway or Reserve. You may write on a new listing to be put in the queue for layaway.

The measurement look larger than the mode/dress form. Is this item pinned?

Yes, it is. All items larger than the form are pinned too represent their accurate fit and shape. We are careful to accurately represent the actual cut of the garment. Don't rely on the size of the model in any way.

I have an issue, may I return an item?

I allow returns or exchanges in only rare occasions - only when I have made an egregious error.

You must contact us with 48 hours of receiving your order if you have an issue, and if an exchange is approved, it must be sent within 48 hours after our communication. Items purchased and worn for special events may not be returned - we are not a rental facility. No refunds are issued based on issues with the fit of a garment, please measure carefully and feel free to make inquiries if you need help with sizing.

Vintage lingerie cannot be returned or exchanged, due to its intimate nature. Clearance items, items noted "as-is" and items sold on layaway may not be returned or exchanged.

Are Accessories Included?

Only accessories original to the piece and specifically described in the listing are included with purchase. All contrasting belts, necklaces, scarves or other items on mannequins or models are for inspiration only and are not included. All included pieces, including original self-fabric belts will be clearly and explicitly described in the listing.
