About beltwayvintage

Sales 160
On Etsy since 2010

Vintage clothing is a way of life. We offer the finest vintage for every day.

Beltway Vintage offers the finest vintage for every day, from the Beltway and beyond. You’ll find vintage clothing, vintage accessories, and vintage home decor items from the 1950s through the 1980s in our Washington, D.C. shop and online.

Beltway Vintage was born in 2009, as a blog called Quarter Life. Quarter Life started as a way to brag about DC’s amazing vintage shops and thrift stores alongside plenty of photos of my favorite finds. Before long, the brick-and-mortar cravings started. I organized pop-up shops, participated in markets, sold online, and spent a lot of time selling and learning at Nana (now on Etsy: shopnanaclothing)

Until I get a physical shop up and running, Etsy is my vintage home! I hope you enjoy browsing from the comfort of your pjs—vintage ones, perhaps?

If you have questions about your order, please send us a convo as soon as possible. Vintage is supposed to make you happy!
Please pay immediately to secure your purchase.

We will gladly reserve an item for you for up to seven (7) calendar days—just send us a convo and we'll label the item as reserved. If payment is not received within seven calendar days, the item will be removed from reserved status and be made available to the general public.

Washington, D.C. shipping addresses will be charged 6% sales tax.

Items are shipped within three business days of receiving payment. Packages are sent by USPS first class, parcel post, or priority mail (whichever is most cost effective), but can be upgraded to expedite shipping. Send us a note before paying if you'd like a speedier shipping option.

Washington, D.C. residents may receive free shipping on all Beltway Vintage purchases by using code DCSHIP at checkout. (We check, so don't try to get sneaky!) Sorry, you still have to pay D.C. sales tax.
