Collecting Fashion from the Past

Hello! My name is Amanda & I started Mint Threads in 2013. At 18 years old, and not even 6 months of college under my belt, I decided I wanted to be my own boss and open an Etsy shop.

I started out by listing just a handful of vintage pieces because I only had $20 to start with. I figured hey, I'm okay with risking $20 because if I fail, I will have only wasted my time and a small amount of money. I was so excited when I got my first sale one month later, a black & white plaid sweater, that will forever be in my memories. I decided to take my profits from that piece and expand my shop and invest into a few other items. Another what seemed like long month later, my second sale came in. I was shocked because I was starting to think that maybe someone just wanted to give me my first sale and then I wouldn't be able to sell anything else from then on. Boy was I wrong because the very next day, I sold two more pieces. From that day, I was consistently selling a few pieces a week to then becoming the business we are now with over 25,000 sales.

I would not still be my own boss had I not had such wonderful customers who have came back time and time again. I promise to improve every year and strive to provide you, my customers, a better experience each time you purchase. We hope to be around for the long haul and we couldn't have done it without YOU!

Frequently asked questions
Vintage Sizing

Vintage tag size is almost always inaccurate. We resize all of our vintage to modern sizing by using "Best Fits" system. This way, you know how the garment should compare with modern sizing.

For example, a 70s dress purchased from us could say "Size 8" on the original vintage tag but fit like a modern small. Most 1970s tags say about 6 sizes larger than what they actually are. A vintage "Size 8" is more like a modern "Size 2" and we would write, "Best Fits: Small" on the listing.

Additionally, we automatically add measurements to all new items listed. We are currently going back through and adding measurements to all of our previously listed items. If you see an item without measurements, feel free to contact us for measurements. :)

Measuring Instructions for Shorts/Jeans

1. Measure the rise first! With jeans on, standing up straight, find the "crotch seam" in your jeans.
2. Take your tape measure and place the 0" on that exact point and pull the rest of the measuring tape up towards your belly button until you get to the rise of this pair listed. That is how high these will sit on your waist.
3. From the spot where the rise ends, you will measure your waist around that exact point.
4. To measure your hips, measure around the largest part of your bottom. This is usually close to your crotch.
