About

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

I was a small town girl from the north coast where vintage was related to cars, period.
School finished, a move to the big city, the first weeks spent on long exploring walks, randomly at first then with excitement and purpose as I discovered tucked away thrift and antique shops. The amazement I felt especially for the antique clothing and textiles I found then still sparks when I'm hunting for pieces for the shop - - definitely the sweet spot !
Studying pattern making, tailoring, and garment construction, I added fashion history to the mix, and spent weekends on hunting and gathering jaunts for fabric ( turned into OOAK and limited run garments for local boutiques ) and clothing sold to vintage shops.

Favorites collected during that 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 more focus for my etsy shop.

Aside from the potential for fabulous one-of-kind personal expression,
I value the ethics of vintage as a beautiful alternative to impossibly cheap garments made at a huge cost to the environment.
A chance to wear a more thoughtful, value-added quality, with built-in history, often a hand made or hand finished piece in a wonderful fabric is the best possible antidote !

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

Thanks so much for stopping by !

I hope you enjoy the finds (:
