Bits & Bobs:

My vintage shop was named after my grandmother, Tiba, whose name translates to “little bird.” While I never had the opportunity to meet her, my mother always told me wonderful stories about her and her choice of clothing. I had been throwing around the idea of opening a vintage shop and thought of using her name in some way. On a chilly day in the winter of 2012, Little Bird Vintage was open for business.

My interest in vintage goes back all the way to when I was a young girl. Vintage textiles have always been a part of my life. I have always been intrigued by clothing, particularly items that are from older time periods. I can remember being quite young and staring at garments that were from my parents youth and being transfixed by all the details.

It seems those moments, among others, left an impression on me as a young child. For me, it’s more than just looking at a piece of clothing or label. It has more to do with the significance of the item. The pieces that I have collected over the years hold memories deep within the fibers. Obviously, those memories cannot be seen, but for me, it adds a level of importance to the garment when I am selling, buying, and collecting. So, I hope you enjoy looking through my shop! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Several vintage garments & accessories have been featured on Showtime's, Masters of Sex (Season 1 & 2), Amazon’s, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Starz, Outlander.

That being said, please check your measurements to the listing size in order to determine if the item will be an appropriate and comfortable fit for you.
