Angela Winter Means / Greatest Friend

I choose vintage that is contemporary in style, made from the very best in natural fibre, condition and construction. I have no label bias only quality bias. I am inspired by nature and living simply, so the garments I select for you, may reflect this.

I'm a psychedelic music enthusiast, A mother & a lover.
A wearer of black & a believer in your unique personal style.

Driven by conscience over capitalism. May the fashion industry please slow down production & support the living wage!

And may we all stop polluting and over using our waters.... XO

Additional policies and FAQs
Please be aware that the colour of an item can sometimes differ slightly to that which you might see on your computer screen.

This is vintage, every item is 20 years or older. Most of my items are as new, but with some pieces please expect the years to show, I will outline this in descriptions of course.... all items are sold "as is" I have many years of love and experience with vintage clothing and dress fabrics, and i will be as detailed and descriptive as possible - I stand 100% behind all items, would wear every one of them if i could and will clearly outline their condition, if it states that it is in excellent vintage condition - it is! if an item seems inexpensive, it is because the item is not very rare - absolutely not because the condition is questionable.

items are measured laying flat, some more complex items are measured to the right sized body measurements for the garment to fit correctly, this will be noted in description. I state the sizes on the garments, as I relate them to a modern size. measurements compared to a personal item are recommended to go by, please do so with garment measured flat.

CONVERSATE me if you have any concerns!

With utmost care,
