About

Starlet Vintage brings you quality, hand selected vintage, sourced from Canada's west coast.

It was an absolute thrill of discovery when as a teenager from a small northern town I explored the big city I'd landed in, and discovered tucked-away thrift and antique shops. In the north, at that time, a completely foreign concept. Amazed and inspired by the vintage clothing and textiles, I was jaw droppingly, light bulb flashingly, hooked.

I went on to study pattern making, fashion history, tailoring, and garment construction, fed and exhilarated by weekend hunting and gathering jaunts
I collected and sold vintage clothing, and stayed up all night making OOAK and limited run garments using mainly vintage and ethnic fabric for local Indie Designer shops.

Favorites collected during this time became the first stock
for the Starlet Vintage brick and mortar shop, a 10 year wonderful
journey, just recently let go for the sake of a little more sanity, a
little more freedom, and the pleasure of a slower pace, with much
wanted time to devote to my etsy shop.

As I navigate this very special marketplace, I so enjoy the opportunities
to interact and grow with my customers and to offer them the quality of
construction, materials, and workmanship that vintage has to offer.

Antidote to the throw-away, unethically produced garments flooding the chain stores,
the history, stories and imaginings of vintage pieces help us see alternatives
that value instead of harm our world, and to the kindred thinkers, and lovers of vintage – thank you !

Every package shipped from my studio will come to you gift wrapped,
professionally and safely packaged, and include care instructions, as well as
a coupon code for 15% off your next purchase at Starlet Vintage !

I hope you enjoy the finds (:
