This dress was just as described and perfect for me. I've been searching for a dress this style for so long and it was a bonus that it was genuinely vintage. Rachel gave me an awesome price on it and it fits great. I may take it for some alterations just because I would like it a little tighter but with the use I know I will be getting from it, it will be well worth the additional effort to have it fit me perfectly. I will definitely be a regular at this shop.

This bag is amazing! I don't think I could have found this bag at this price somewhere else. The shop owner Rachel, is amazing. she was quick to respond, gave great details on the items I was interested in and gave me a great price on everything. She is super friendly and very sweet. I don't come across many sellers who are that personable and easy to work with. Again, a great purse and I know I will be getting a lot a compliments on it! Thank you!

I love this typewriter! Pictures and description do not deceive, the typewriter is in great condition and is fully functional. Would purchase from this store again.

About

Never Leaving a Treasure Behind.

I started Apricot Vintage honestly to prevent my significant other from being annoyed at all the junk that I continually bring home and to keep hoarding at bay.
My first job in St. Louis as a teen was working at a thrift store and from there I've worked in consignment shops, vintage shops, antique shops, cleaned estates, and frequented the same thrift haunts from Chicago to St. Louis and back again.
Being a middle kid raised by a mother who constantly curated collections of tchotchkes throughout my childhood, and a father who collects vintage cars, I'm sure it's a combination of compulsion, empathy, obsession, and insecurity that keeps me surrounded by all this old junk!
Apricot Vintage keeps me sane by allowing me to indulge in guilty pleasures while offering my little curated collection to everyone.
Although there is no brick & mortar shop, I can regularly be found throughout Chicago slingin' goods alongside Veruca Vintage at The Vintage Bazaar and The Vintage Garage pop up sales.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! Please have a look and feel free to ask any questions you might have.

I've worked in thrift, vintage and estate sales my whole life. It has always been my passion. For the things that are too amazing to leave behind at the thrift store, flea market or estate sale I've created Apricot Vintage.

I do my very best to accurately describe each and every piece and the condition that it is in. I measure all articles of clothing laying flat, so by doubling that number when applicable, you will get an accurate measurement of the item. I am always happy to answer any questions, give you more detailed photographs and information on any piece before you make a purchase.

Apricot Vintage has taken The Honest Vintage Pledge: Everything that I have tagged as vintage in my shop is at least twenty years old or older. I stake my reputation on it. I will never knowingly sell a fake or a repro knockoff to my customers.
