About

Take a step back in time and discover a whole new style

Frocks and Frills Vintage provides quality vintage clothing and accessories that date from the late 1880s to the 1980s. A premium selection of hand-picked, wearable vintage apparel and accessories that cater to modern trends. The store is stocked with one-of-a-kind items that guarantee individuality. The quality and construction of vintage garments is unmatched, with superior tailoring, fabric, and attention to detail that ensure a sophisticated appearance. Vintage gives you the quality of designer clothing at an affordable price.
Frocks and Frills Vintage was established in 2001 with a few small booths in local antique malls, then a few online boutiques that eventually blossomed into a brick and mortar shop located in Downtown Wheaton, in 2012. However, while the business is fairly new, the passion for vintage has been a lifelong journey.
"For as long as I can remember, I've been surrounded by antiques," remarks proprietor Lindsay. "My parents dealt with antiques since the 1970s. This is something that's in our blood and we just have a knack for it. Knowing the eras isn't just knowledge, it's a feeling you get when you touch and handle something vintage. You just know it."
Lindsay prides herself on providing the highest quality vintage by seeking out museum quality items, and by repairing and reviving old clothing so that it may be loved again.
"We give these clothes life. They don't always come to us in pristine condition, but we rejuvenate them so that the past can come alive."
So shed the sweat pants and hoodies and slip into something that makes you feel sexy, empowered, and unique! Whether you're wearing a 1950s nightgown or a sultry disco dress, wearing vintage allows you to embody style and a sense of personality that's lacking from today's trendy, disposable, clothing.
"Vintage has a past and it can tell a story, even if you're unaware of the history. I believe that wearing vintage carries on that story and the positive vibes of the past keep us moving forward."
