New in the shop! Antique 1910s cotton gauze wrap / fits m-xl



Since I was a child I have always loved "oldness". Growing up, my Grandma Annabelle lived with me, and I am sure that only helped to cultivate that love. She was older than all of my friend's grandmas (she had my mom at 42), so my Grandma was a connection to the REAL olden days. When I was in middle school I dressed up as Jackie Kennedy, wearing a boxy brocade skirt suit and fur coat that my Grandma had saved from the 60s. It was awesome. In high school, I discovered Goodwill and sheepishly bought a couple 1970s sweaters that I loved and wore to school.

My growing love for fashion led me to apply and be accepted to a design school in Chicago. I ended up passing on that and staying in my hometown. I got married and had a baby-all the while trying to find a creative outlet for myself but to no avail. Art classes, coaching basketball....nothing kept me interested. I prayed for God to show me what I could do and finally one night the idea to sell vintage clothing popped into my head. It all made sense. This is what I was supposed to do.

Even now, three years later, I have the same hunger and passion for vintage clothing that I did when I first started. I take pride in my shop and I strive to be a reliable and trusted seller. I have exciting plans for Lived-In and I cant wait to reach my goals!

Welcome to EyeForVintage! I love how antique and vintage items have a story to tell even before we buy them! I favor vintage pieces from the 1920s-1970s, but I will have some 80s items from time to time. When you buy vintage, you can be certain that you have a unique item you wont find anyone else wearing! I keep up with all the fashion magazines and I can tell you that the secret is out about Etsy. Etsy has been mentioned in almost every fashion publication.

I always try to date the pieces I have in my shop, and I DON'T JUST GUESS. I take pride in giving my customers authentic vintage peices. I am always researching and learning more ways to date clothing. In my item descriptions I note the condition and any flaws I may find to the best of my ability. If I notice a minor flaw that I am able to mend myself, I will do so and specify if the item was repaired in my description. Keep in mind that these items are vintage and most are around 50 years old. Unless otherwise noted, most items have not been dry cleaned or laundered by me. However, I am very picky about what I list in my shop and I only list items that I would want to wear.

I accept Paypal and money orders. Money orders must be received no later than 7 days after purchase was made or item will be re-listed.
After a payment is received, I will ship within 3 business days. I can sometimes get it out the following business day. I use USPS first class usually and priority mail if that's the best way to go, but I can upgrade if you need me to. I also try to use recycled materials in my packaging. If you would like insurance on the item, please let me know in a message and I can adjust the shipping rate if needed. Once a package has left me, it is no longer something I can control, therefore, I cannot be responsible for packages lost in the mail. I will, however, do anything I can to help assist if that situation were to arise.

I accept returns on a case by case basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
I check my shop at least a few times a day, so if you convo me, I should get back to you within the same day.
