I love my "new" vintage boho straw bag! My husband and I booked a tropical vacay and was looking for the perfect boho chic straw bag that wasn't too big or flashy and most importantly unique! I found it on clothesline vintage!! Candace was very responsive and shipped out my bag fast and also Included tracking as I was concerned about receiving it in time for my trip. I received my bag on time and love it! Thanks Candace I can't wait to use it om my trip!!

A little snug - feels more like a 7.5 instead of an 8 but I'll try and break them in. Other than that they're good.

About

Clotheslines Vintage....a vintage story.

I LOVE VINTAGE!!!

I have been a vintage clothing collector all of my life! From the bags of hand-me-down treasures in the early years, to my first purchase of a menswear blazer from the local charity shop, to my favourite vintage acquisitions from the many brick and mortar shops that became my second-home....and now here on ETSY!
I am thrilled to be a part of this online community, sharing my love of all things vintage with an international community of like-minded people! I am proud to be a vendor of vintage on Etsy since 2012!

WHAT INSPIRES ME...

I LOVE FASHION.
OBSESSED.
I BUY WAY TOO MANY FASHION MAGAZINES.
I LOVE VINTAGE. ALOT.

What I LOVE about VINTAGE//Vintage clothing has a story and a narrative--a history...AND...it is a sustainable way to shop for something unique in our world of disposable, fast-fashion:

“The smart way of consuming is to understand that the pieces that will endure in your wardrobe are the ones with a traceable narrative.” Camilla Pole, "Green is the New Black": Harpers Bazaar, UK. Nov 2011.

“Clothes are symbols and constitute a system, a language.” Stan Tymorek; author of, Clotheslines: A Collection of Poetry and Art .When I am buying for the shop, I am ever-influenced by cultural references from the worlds of fashion, design, music, literature, and film…and my own childhood memories of what our mother's wore when....I love the boho-hippy-chic of the 1970s...to the great secretary dresses of the 1980s...anything shiny, leather, lace....the grunge culture of the 1990s...ALL OF IT!

Clotheslines Vintage's garments, reference the 1960s-1990s, but adapted for the fashion forward, vintage loving gal of today!

We love that, woven into the very fibre of each vintage piece is a story and history--our customer will not only acquire an amazing, new vintage goody, but a story of who, what, wore embedded in the fabric of each garment...and a now, a new lease on life--a story waiting to be told...

Not to mention that we hand-pick each unique garment, because we think it is an awesome vintage find that speaks to what is currently happening in the fashion today: a super-cool find, unique and stands-out from all that fast fashion!

We hope you are as inspired by these pieces as we are!
We hope you that while you browse our shop, you notice how much we love vintage, too!!
