Amazing & Sweet & Weird & Pretty & Vintage

Vintage Chinchilla!

I have been a dealer in vintage clothing & treasures for almost six years, but have been a collector since I was born into a family with a love for the past! My mom would take me around to thrift stores & rummage sales before I could even walk.

I began buying vintage for myself while in high school in the 90's. Ahhh those were the days! After spending a few years working as a makeup artist and in dabbling in restaurant work I decided to start selling vintage clothing online as a hobby. In 2007 I quit my day job and took on selling online as a full time job. It was quite the leap, but felt right! In 2008 I opened a vintage shop in Chicago's Ukrainian Village neighborhood where I had a great run of 3 years.

My husband and I decided to move to Indianapolis in the summer of 2011 when we fell in love with a 1960 mid century modern ranch home surrounded by the woods. That is where Vintage Chinchilla is based out of today! I have the luxury of space in my home now, which allows my inventory to be.. quite extensive :) We have been here a year now and I've been selling on Etsy for a little less than that. I love my Etsy shop and look forward to checking its progress every morning over coffee. I keep Vintage Chinchilla lovingly curated and filled with things that excite my heart, so I hope you enjoy looking through everything!
I grew up in a Chicago bungalow fascinated by history, nature, books & glamour. All the while wearing vintage and surrounded by old things! Now I live in Indianapolis in a mid century modern home surrounded by the woods, nature, & vintage!
