Gemini Rising Vintage

​Gemini Rising Vintage carries curated vintage finds for the modern woman. Founded in 2017, we are located at 43 Sixth Street, the heart of historic downtown New Westminster, British Columbia. Previously we were selling on Etsy full time since 2009 as "Honey Moon Muse".

​Inspired by the horoscope sign Gemini, the sign of the twins, we believe that fashion allows us to indulge our multiple psyches. In astrology, the rising sign influences the external appearance, or how other see you. Vintage fashion lovers can carry on the lifespan of an object by giving it their own personality, one that appreciates it's history and ​affords it a second chance.

About 1/3 of our stock is online. For more come visit our storefront located at 43 Sixth St, New Westminster, B.C., Canada.

Please do not message us with "offers". We take great care and time selecting our collection and run a full time retail shop. There is a lot of overhead and fees associated in selling items online, and most people would be surprised to know that our profit margin is around 10%. It's the equivalent of someone asking you to do your job "for less". We are happy to engage with customers that see the value in running a small business, ie. what Etsy used to be, something different from big box stores that can offer regular "discounts". 1-2 times a season we do FLASH sales, generally when we go on holiday or buying trips. Please add us on Instagram @geminirisingvintage to find out when. Check out our heavily discounted 25 - 70% off SALE section for older stock.

Most items on Etsy are for sale in our brick and mortar store, Gemini Rising Vintage. We do pull sold items from the shop once daily. Items are in stock unless noted otherwise. In the case and item is out of stock, we will refund the charge and cancel the sale ASAP.

We do our best to professionally sew/mend any flaws and a mild cleaning treatment is given to items with stains, smellier items, and all leather goods. The majority of our clothing has been steam cleaned with a standard garment steamer. Please note that in the interest of not compromising the condition of our garments we do not launder them, therefore it is up to the customer if they choose to for hygienic reasons.

This is vintage, therefore we only have one of each item to sell. Most vintage pieces are rare finds that you won't come across again and once something is sold, chances are it’s gone for good. Simply put: If you love it, buy it. Generally we don't have more than one unless in the rare instance it's deadstock (new vintage, found with tags, sometimes found in batches).

We invest a lot of time in organizing photo shoots and having items shot on a professional model. Unfortunately we only take extra pics on items over $100 unless it's a detail shot of the label or flaws.

When shopping for vintage clothing online it's best to follow the actual garment measurements listed rather than rely on a size tag as clothing has changed from decade to decade and sizing differs from brand to brand. Vintage sizes may run smaller than modern sizing. "Estimated fit" is just an estimate.

Brooke's stats (Curly haired main model): US size 6, 34 - 27 - 36, 5'9.
Marriki's stats (Short black hair main model): US size 4, 32 - 25 - 34, 5'3.

Contact us if you have further questions not described above, we are friendly & try to be as accommodating as possible. We will respond to messages within 48 hours.
