About SecondShiftVintage

Oh, 3748 North Elston Avenue, Let Me Sing Thy Praises

Back in my high school days, I used to frequent a lil' event called "Half-Price Mondays" at Unique Thrift Store on Elston Avenue. The result of which, every time, was two rather large bags of 60s maxis, circle skirts, and 50s shirt dresses. When my closet began to resemble a paisley mudslide, I realized the time had come to shove my lace minis out of the nest, where they would hopefully fly into the outstretched, bangled arms of boho babes from Tulsa.

AND THUS, SECOND SHIFT VINTAGE WAS BORN.

So -get this- it is now my job to be a full-blooded vintage hound. Every week I go bin-diving, rack-combing, and closet-spelunking to bring you the lovely, the hip, and the kitsch.

Now, despite being a generally ridiculous sort of person, I care deeply about Ma Earth- just ask anyone in my household who has ever thrown away tin foil. As such, my shop strives to be eco-lovey: I use recycled tissue paper and shipping envelopes, and reuse packaging whenever possible. Aww, she's got a heart, after all.

While I'm waiting for my Lifetime Movie offer, I shall continue to heroically replace your tired-prints, your poor-ly fitting pants, your muddled dresses yearning to be freed from your wardrobe...

All items are shipped via the good 'ol USPS. I am partial to First Class and Priority Mail. I always include tracking. Give me a shout if you want express shipping, and I'll happily send you a shipping quote.

Items are listed as shipping within 1-3 business days. If you need something faster, send me a message & I'll try my best to get your package out as swiftly as possible. (It's also not a bad idea to check USPS expedited shipping rates beforehand, they can be a bit high!)
