Making Life Feminine & Fun One Vintage Dress At A Time

Once upon a time, there lived a teenage girl from Long Island named Meg. She was shy but let her personality shine by expressing herself through fashion. She loved turning over her closet often and began selling her closet castoffs on Livejournal in 2004 under the name "Drop Your Drawers." As her style changed from wearing mall bought clothes to thrift store finds, she fell in love with vintage clothing and her stores focus soon changed as well. She quickly built a website to share her vintage finds with the world and she also sold on Ebay and later Etsy. As the years went by though she got tired of explaining what DYD meant and changed her store name to something more like the bright, whimsical world she envisioned, Storyland Vintage.

Hello there and thank you for stopping by Storyland Vintage!

I strive to fill my shop with fun & feminine vintage clothing and have a profound love for novelty prints and 1950's-60's dresses. My idea of a great day is estate sailing and sitting in a strangers home digging through boxes of clothes or launching myself into deep, dark, dusty closets to find hidden jewels. Everything I sell here at Storyland Vintage was personally sourced by me with assistance from my Mama. Often times I find things by relying on a gut feeling to go to a particular store, sale or aisle at a thrift store destined to find a particular piece. Sometimes I'll go down a random aisle and find a 1940's dress or find something that I feel was put there for me to find. It thrills me and sometimes chokes me up to read happy emails, to see photos of customers in their vintage scores and to find something I sold was purchased for possible use in television or film...and my industry list is getting mighty long but no sightings as of yet *fingers crossed*.

Thanks again for stopping by, happy shopping and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have :D

hearts, meg

Frequently asked questions
When will it ship?

Storyland Vintage ships M-F within 1-2 business days unless there is a special notice in the shop announcement at ↣ it will also state a "Ready to Ship" time in your shopping cart, if I am going to be away I always update the shipping timeline before I leave :)


Everything I sell is measured and weighed for the most accurate shipping calculations at checkout.

US Orders ship: USPS First Class or Priority Mail(1-3 days in the mail once shipped) with tracking

International Orders ship: First Class Mail(arrives in 7-21 days once shipped) OR USPS Priority Mail International(in normal, non-busy times of the year most locations would arrive in 6-10 days once shipped). If an order is over 4 pounds it cannot ship First Class.

♥ If you provide the wrong shipping address and it is returned to me you will be responsible for the amount to re-ship it.

♥ Free Shipping ships the cheapest method and is not refundable.

♥ Need it faster? Upgrades may be available at checkout or contact me!


Measurements are taken flat and provided in an items description and doubled where appropriate unless otherwise stated. The best way to determine fit is to compare the measurements listed to your own body measurements and also to something you already own and love the fit of. Remember to allow room for movement to ensure a proper fit.

♥ I provide model/dressform sizes for reference.

♥ Please note clothing may be clipped on the model to show how they would look on the suitable size but will be denoted after "PINNED TO MODEL?"

♥ Shopping with a mobile device? Click "Item Details" to view the measurements.

♥ If you would like additional measurements, please contact me!

Are prices negotiable?

Adapted from a sign in an antique shop and edited to fit being an online vintage clothing seller:

I hunt it, travel to find it, find it, buy it, haul it, wash it, scrub it, repair it, fix it, patch it, steam it, model it, photograph it, edit photographs for it, describe it, research it, compare it, list it, advertise it, relist it, weigh it, display it, care for it, package it, ship it.....
"Now how can I take any less?"

♥ That being said, I may be open to fair offers but please check the shop announcement and follow us on social media for coupon codes.


Layaway's are available for serious customers on items over $100 that were not newly listed and aren't on sale. A down payment of 25% is required and non-refundable with other payments being made over a one month reserve time. To set this up, contact me from the listing page! ♥

No Returns/Exchanges

ALL SALES ARE FINAL. There are no refunds or exchanges. Here at Storyland Vintage I sell 100% vintage items, since the items are old they cannot be expected to be in new condition as they have probably been used/worn and experienced wear at some point. Due to the detailed care and service I provide, returns and exchanges are not accepted for fit, color issues or minor flaws. Please view all photos, read an items description and measurements thoroughly before placing an order and please ask any and all questions prior to purchase. I want you to LOVE your Storyland Vintage purchase and I am always happy to answer questions! :)


Here at Storyland Vintage I sell 100% vintage items. Since the items are old they cannot be expected to be in new condition as they have probably been used/worn and experienced wear at some point. Any noticeable flaws will be noted in an items description and photos, however sometimes minor flaws may be overlooked. Items are rated by condition on each item page and they are defined in the chart below:

EXCELLENT: A fantastic find, *near* perfect!
GREAT: A couple flaws or signs of wear that do not retract from the piece
GOOD: A few flaws that may be noticeable, may be able to be repaired and cleaned
FAIR: A study piece, too cool to trash but prob not good enough to wear

100% Vintage

Here at Storyland Vintage I only sell 100% vintage handpicked and staff stocked items. Often vintage is one-of-a-kind and it is highly unlikely to find that special item ever again. So, don't live a life of heartbreak and regret, if you have your eye on something, snatch it up before it's too late! It's now or never, doll!

♥ If you happen to be looking for something in particular, please let me know, I have tons of pieces of unlisted vintage stock :)
