History Of Coral Vintage
“SIX MONTHS after I started my business, I came across a Craigslist post advertising clothing and accessories from the early 1900s to the 1970s. The ad said any buyer must take all or nothing at all. When I called, the woman explained that the collection had belonged to her late uncle, who had worked in Hollywood for years.
The next day, my husband and I drove to a town outside of Rainier Oregon to view the collection.
Then she opened a door into a three-car garage, asking, ‘Are you ready?’
We found a sea of dresses: rack after rack of vintage cocktail and party dresses, tailored wool suits, coats, lingerie, costumes, wedding gowns, swimming suits ... Large containers were filled with vintage eyeglasses, jewelry, and hats. I noticed labels like Chanel, Lilli Ann, Emma Domb, and more. I also realized that many of these dresses were like new: unwashed, pressed, and preserved for decades. We estimated the total collection to be at least 6,000 pieces. I honestly felt in my heart that this was an incredible once in a lifetime opportunity that I was ready to accept.
A year and a half later, I’m in love with the quality and creativity of these vintage textiles, and I hope we’re doing the original collector proud.”
