About

It's all because I couldn't find the right wedding dress...

When I got engaged and starting combing the usual stores in search of the perfect wedding dress, I couldn't believe how hard it was. I just couldn't find a dress that spoke to me. Then, one day as I was wandering around an antique store in downtown San Diego, I hit the jackpot ~ an entire rack of vintage bridal gowns. These were the unique designs I had been seeking! Thus, my love of vintage was born and has since expanded into all things vintage. Which is why I love Etsy!

Be sure to check out my other Etsy Shop, A State of the Union, where all of our gorgeous vintage bridal gowns and accessories from the 1800s to the 1990s can be found.

Thanks so much for stopping by my Etsy shop! If you have any questions or want to make an offer on any item, send me a convo.

Until then,
Mimi

Frequently asked questions
What are my options regarding shipping?

I tend to ship items USPS Priority Shipping because it allows us both to track your item to make sure it has reached you, but I'm always looking for ways to save you money on shipping. So, if you prefer a different shipping method, please reach out. I'm flexible. I'm also happy to combine items to reduce your shipping costs.

What if I purchase an item and it doesn't fit?

I'm a big believer in having a flexible return policy. If you're not happy, I'm not happy. As long as you strictly abide by my return deadlines (return within 7 days of receipt), I will refund you your purchase amount, less shipping costs. If the item has been damaged or altered in any way, we'll have to chat.

Why are vintage items so much better made than newer items?

Well, I've actually given this some thought. Once upon a time, there was a thriving manufacturing sector in the U.S. It still exists, but much of our modern, ready-to-wear clothing and our disposable economy has resulted in many items now being made overseas. So, vintage items tend to be made from materials and fabrics that are on the higher quality side. This isn't always the case, but if you wonder why some vintage items cost more than new, this is one of the reasons.

Where do you find all of your amazing vintage treasures?

Oh, you would be surprised! I'm constantly on the hunt for my next treasure, and I have to admit that they don't always make it into my shop! Shhhh!
