About

Honey Moon Muse Vintage

It’s empowering to know that there are like-minded individuals out there in internet land who appreciate our offbeat sense of fashion. A tribe that revels in psychedelic dresses, high waisted mom jeans, Versace style bomber jackets, and goth platform boots. Cool cats who get the meaning of “personal style” and “subculture” and “history” and hold it above all else when it comes to their wardrobes (ESPECIALLY above big box giants).

We are kin.

Our goal is to make every item's history a part of YOUR next story. We cannot advocate an industry that thrusts out more unnecessary products into the world because we've seen firsthand how much clothing goes into the landfill at the end of the day. We are sabotaging the environment in pursuit of the “next new thing" one $10 polyester top at a time. Because you see, there is nothing wrong with “this old thing”. Fashion is of great relevance considering what you wear on your back tells the world a whole lot about what values you stand for.

We’re straight up recycling, collectively.

I have faith that you get that same squeal of delight when you open up your parcel that I did when I first spotted your lovely treasure lurking in the depths of some dusty forgotten thrift store basement and said to myself, “Now THIS is cool. My customers would slay for this”. Because one girl’s trash is another girl’s silk caftan. Perfect for Coachella.

It’s win-win when you buy vintage.

So click on dear fashion mavericks. Together we can lead vintage-filled lives on opposite ends of the globe. Because I want to work a color palette as good as my 84 year old Grandma does, who rocks 5 necklaces at once, and passes on groovy jumpsuits to me, the weird one.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

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. We often pin parts back for photos as our main model is a modern US size 4, 31 - 25 - 34, 5'3.

The BEST way to figure out if something will fit is to compare measurements to a similar garment of your own. We recommend selecting a similar garment in your closet; place it on a flat surface and measure straight across from seam to seam with a dressmaker's tape.

What is Vintage?

Vintage means items are previously used, and over 20 years old. When shopping with us keep in mind that the majority of items are vintage, unless noted that they are handmade. Normal wear and minor flaws can be expected, such as loose threads, slight fading and other signs of age that do not affect wearability. Garments may have characteristics of a particular age and era. Sometimes eras are estimates as some items cannot be pin-pointed down so narrowly, and in those cases we use our best judgement to date it.

We hand-pick all of our items for quality assurance to make sure you are receiving high quality goods. Each vintage piece is inspected 3 - 5 times before it arrives at your doorstep. The majority of items in our shop are Mint - Exce

Vintage Condition Definitions

NOS: New Old Stock - found with original tags. Sometimes also referred to as deadstock or NWT (new with tags). Rare.
MINT: Perfect condition. Looks unworn with no flaws to note. Also Rare.
EXCELLENT: An item shows normal signs of gentle wear. May have a few minor imperfections (small scratch, thread pull, small spot, etc.) which will not compromise the overall style. Any flaws are considered minor and not easily visible when wearing. No structural damage or repair needed. Typical condition for most vintage items in our shop, or most vintage shops for that matter.
VERY GOOD: An item is wearable and desirable but shows signs it's been well loved. May show surface flaws (such as light stains, or pilling) . Or may show minor structural damage

Are items cleaned?

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.

Do you have more than one in stock? Another size?

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).

Can I get a discount?

Please do not message us with offers - we don't negotiate our prices. We will not mark down items we have just added, only out of season or older stock (see sale section). We are an experienced and professional shop that takes great care to choose only high quality vintage items. We do thorough research on pricing, and put in an extensive amount of time and effort into photography, sourcing, mending, shipping, marketing, customer service and more all while balancing monthly business expenses. It's a lot of work. For this reason the shop has a no haggle policy. Keep in mind that I am not a huge online retailer. This is not fast fashion. Like most small businesses, we strive really hard to grow. This is why we love the Etsy community!
