About

Searching for the stories behind forgotten treasures.

Do you know that feeling when you're wandering through a thrift store and you suddenly see *the perfect thing*, the thing you've been searching in vain for, and you can't believe that there it is, just waiting for you to take it home? It's such a thrilling moment, to realize how lucky you are to have been in the right place at the right time. La Roux Vintage grew out of a desire to share that feeling with others. My name is Erika, although everyone calls me Rew (hence my shop name - a play off of my nickname and a nod to my red hair!) and I love all things vintage. I like to think that perhaps by seeing the beauty in something discarded or otherwise forgotten, I can help bring it to the one person who has been searching for it.

I grew up in a small town in Connecticut that happened to be host to the largest weekly flea market in New England. Wandering that huge field of everything under the sun, I developed a deep love and appreciation for antiques and vintage goods. My taste has been constantly changing over the years, but when finding treasures I look for quality of craftsmanship, condition, how rare or sought after an object is, its usefulness (or potential usefulness if it can be repurposed!) and a timeless sense of style. I hope there are others like me; those with a budget but a passion for all things old, who can find something they really love *and* afford in my shop. I love making people happy - it's what I strive to do in my daily life and with my Etsy shop.

At La Roux Vintage, I offer antique and vintage books, home decor, glass and serving ware, jewelry and clothing. If you're looking for something special, I absolutely love requests and do my best to find exactly what you need - if I can't find it, I'll help you reach someone who can!

My personal collections include mid-century illustrated children's books (especially by Clare Turlay Newberry), Bavarian bone china teacups, and adding to my album of discarded black and white candid photos. I live in Somerville, MA (just outside of Boston) with my long-haired cat Lila and my fellow-artist boyfriend Allan, my biggest supporters and causers of spontaneous cuddle puddles. When not hunting for new vintage goods, I'm often found cold-brewing coffee at home, crafting or painting, and running.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Need gift wrapping? Just ask! Gift wrap and notes can often be provided for free or a minimal fee :)

Additions to Policies

Hello! We do not generally accept returns but will review requests on a case-by-case basis. Return shipping, when accepted, is the responsibility of the buyer, and original shipping fees are non-refundable.

In the rare case of an item being damaged in transit, please contact within 3 days with photos so we may file an insurance claim to refund your purchase as quickly as possible. Please retain original packaging. Buyer must sign the provided form for insurance refunds to be processed.

Items are sold as-is, and all of our items are vintage! That means they may have imperfections, minor damage, tarnish and wear - all of these specifics are outlined in the description of each item but please feel free to ask for additional images or details

Customs Fees

Shipping out of the US may result in customs fees - we have no control over these fees and they are the responsibility of the buyer. Actual item values are auto-listed on our customs forms, and it is illegal to provide false information on any postal document. Items returned due to unpaid customs fees can be resent upon request, however additional shipping charges will apply.
