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.

Born and Raised in St. Louis, Missouri. Transplant to Chicago, Illinois. Thrifter, Chihuahua obsessor, mother. Apricot Vintage of Avondale, you've got a friend in the Vintage Business.
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.
