dirty birdies vintage

Dirty Birdies Vintage is a popular online vintage clothing & decor shop for the adventurous and spirited. We offer a wide variety of styles and trends for everyone. We carefully hand-pick everything that goes into our shop. Our vintage section ranges from the 1940s-1990s, however, we specialize in clothing and accessories from the 80s/90s - with a love for minimal, grunge, basics and easy to wear boho styles. My sister and I opened this shop in 2007 on Ebay and moved to Etsy in 2009. We both grew up in Iowa and after venturing out to art school in NYC and Chicago, we both found ourselves living back in Iowa once again. We love what we do and we hope you will make us your GO TO shop and become a Dirty Birdie.

Follow us on INSTAGRAM for sales and new products. Also you can tag your customer appreciation photos with the hashtag #dirtybirdiesvintage
