About

Inspired and colorful and dressing outside of the box has been my basic style signature since I was a child. One of my earliest memories of a favorite outfit was a pair of torn jeans and a hand-me-down orange and red tie-dye shirt. I studiously affixed a multi-colored bandana around the torn knee a la my fashion idol of the time, Punky Brewster (In fact I paired this ensemble with my Punky inspired hightops which were a multi colored affair affixed with her smiling face and sunshiny pigtails).

Other early influences include but are not limited to: Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan and the Dress You Up video, Cyndi Lauper in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Richard Simmons' after school workout jam, my stylish Mother and Aunt who both took shopping very seriously, and last but hardly least: the ever evolving bedroom and closet walls of my big sis, first featuring each individual Outsider and moving on to members of Poison and Motley Crue.

My sense of the things I was wearing took a drastic turn towards vintage when in 1992 I met a style crusader who would change the way I looked at clothing forever. I have been buying, selling, and trading vintage clothing ever since! I have spent a formative amount of my free time over the years digging from the attic to the basement for the most unique and truly stand out pieces of clothing a girl could ever want.

In the past few decades my style has ever evolved to suit my interests but one thing has remained the same, I have fun with what I'm wearing and it is a joy for me to share that experience with others. I have taken some turns at selling vintage for sport in the past. For ten years I have been literally up to my knees in the mud as my family and I have been running an organic farming operation at home in Vermont. Since farming isn't really the kindest to clothing, my extensive collection has been tucked safely away (I din't stop collecting though!).

This year I have been able to branch out and reignite my longtime passion for the true treasures that are vintage pieces of clothing! For the first time since 2006, I am running my own brick and mortar vintage store in historic Bellows Falls, Vermont! In the past few months I have unpacked hundreds upon hundreds of gorgeous vintage garments from my collection.

I am heavy on the aesthetic aspect of shopping and have been slow to the online sales game. That said, I live in a tiny Vermont town and want to be able to share my outrageous collection with the vast and lively world on the wide web. Hello, I'm delighted to meet you. Let's get to dressing up for our love.

All sales are final so be sure to ask all of your questions about size, fit, color,shipping methods, etc., etc... Please consider your purchases with care and I will too!

Most of my vintage pieces have been worn. Vintage clothing is full of quirks (that is part of what makes the pieces so uniquely satisfying)~ Pieces may have been altered to fit, torn and repaired, patched, faded, worn to bits, or may be in perfect condition. They may be crafted by a design house or homemade in a sewing room. I look for top quality pieces without stains or tears but sometimes an item is too special to pass up and I will either repair it or sell it as is. I promise to be incredibly detailed in my listing so you will know in advance if the piece has any quirks. These garments range from 20 to 100 or more years old! Sometimes minor flaws and general wear and tear add to the personality of pre-loved pieces. Think worn in t-shirts, denim, and leather... Sometimes a piece is in pieces but is a fabulous study and I want to share it with you. Through cleaning and modeling I am able to thoroughly check all items for shortcomings but if a small imperfection is missed or a weak spot is uncovered by use or wear, please be sure that I would never intentionally misrepresent the quality or character of a garment. Check out the listing thoroughly for all of the details and be sure to ask all of your questions!!!

Garment Measurements are done by standard tailoring methods. Again, please don't hesitate to come to me if you have any questions about a piece's measurements or yours... be sure to ask! I want you to be satisfied with your purchase!
I'm happy to make sure that you will be happy with your fit!
