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.

    You know the story - girl meets vintage, girl buys vintage, girl overwhelms all her closets, opens a shop and makes good. Vintage fashion was my first love affair, and my most constant. I believe in 40s tilt hats, decadent furs and bakelite bangles.

Refunds and Exchanges
✿ Please shop with care and ask questions, as all sales are final.

✿ Our items are carefully described and measured, and listed with detailed condition evaluation, so that you may feel comfortable with your purchase. As our items are vintage, they are sold AS-IS. Exchanges are handled on a case-by-case basis. 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. There is a BLACK OUT period for returns of formal, party and cocktail dresses after major holidays: New Year's, Valentines's, Christmas season etc. Example: a dress cannot be ordered on February 5th, delivered February 10th, and returned after the 14th. Items sold on Layaway cannot be returned.

A note about color and brightness in our listing photographs. We use a professional photographer in order to represent as accurately as possible the items that we offer for sale. We are not responsible for the different in perception of color due to the variation between computer monitors. Reds, pinks and oranges tend to be the most problematic for buyers as monitors go out of balance. We always list an accurate description of the garment's color. Some light colored garments may appear brighter from minor "blow out," but the color will be described in the listing. Questions are always welcomed.
Additional policies and FAQs
✿Frequently asked question #1: do you offer layaway?

A: Layaway will be available for all items that have been in the shop for more than 48 hours, and are priced at $100 or more. Please see the Payment terms above for a more information.

✿ Frequently asked question #2: the measurements look larger than the model. Is this pinned in?

A: Yes, you are exactly right! All items larger than the model are pinned too represent their accurate fit and shape. We are careful to accurately represent the actual cut of the garment.

✿ Frequently asked question #3: what is your reserve policy?

A: I reserve items for a maximum if 7 days, with guaranteed purchase and payment by the end of that time. Just send a convo, let me know that you are sure you want it, and what day you intend to pay.I am afraid that users who fail to complete their purchases on items they have Reserved will not be able to make reservations in the future. NEWLY LISTED items cannot be reserved for the 48 hours that they are listed.

✿ A: Frequently asked question #4: where do you find all this great stuff?

I spend hours upon hours each week hunting in dark, hidden shops and traveling through Oregon and California to bring you only the best! I try to provide a range of eras, daywear to evening and plenty of accessories.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions about an item or your purchase! I want you to feel secure about ordering, and make a point to answer questions promptly and to the best of my ability.

✿ Q: Frequently asked question #5: I have a coupon code. Can I use it on your sale?

A: Promotions at Fab Gabs can't be combined. I sometimes run sales, but coupon codes can't be combined for an additional discount during a sale period. One discount promotion per garment!
