online vintage clothing boutique established in 1999

Hemlock Vintage is an exclusively online vintage clothing boutique established in December of 1999 by me, Julia, in a suburb of Washington, DC. I sought out to create a unique online vintage clothing boutique offering a well curated and high quality inventory, professional photography, no-nonsense descriptions of the clothing and an attractive, easy to navigate website. Our selection ranges from hard to find designer items to hip urban vintage.

I started the shop selling my own collection and I have been collecting vintage clothing since I was a toddler. My dad regularly let me run loose in thrift stores, buy whatever I wanted, helping to develop my unique sense of style.

Hemlock Vintage Clothing offers a hand-selected collection of high-quality vintage clothing from the turn of the 20th Century through the 1980's. Hemlock has been around for many many years, selling both online vintage and handmade items. Our clothing is inspected inside and out and refurbished. One of our favorite customers said it best, "Everything that I have received from you always exceeds my expectations. Your pictures and descriptions are the most well represented on the web as I have been to every vintage house possible, but the clothes are always true to description but so much more beautiful than I am expecting."

Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage clothing is used clothing and may have basic wear. Any notable flaws will be listed in the condition report. Our clothing is thoroughly checked inside and out for issues and cleaned/repaired. In other words, our items are not sold in "as found" or "as-is" condition. Some items are not cleaned due to age or delicate fabrics and we leave this decision of cleaning up to the buyer.

Typically the outside measurements of the item laid flat, with the exception of an interior bust and waist measurement for items with linings or constructed of thick fabric.

In some cases, clothing has to be pinned to show the fit. Additional crinolines may be used to show the fullness of a skirt (this is typically noted in the description).
