About modernmatters

Sales 343
On Etsy since 2010

Modern Matters loves sharing midcentury marvels for your modern world.

It all started when I was 11, and had to have that 1940's Deco beaded bag from the thrift shop. From there I began designing dresses for paper dolls on leftover paper from my mom's office, taking art and design classes through school, then working in design (fashion, graphics, interiors,) while free-lancing on the side.

Fast-forward through years of collecting vintage and eventually running out of space to contain all those objects of my desire. I could keep collecting only if I started sharing with others, which led to selling online and at shows in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, LA, NYC and throughout the Southeast.

I still love buying great vintage pieces, refashioning some things along the way, but I also love it when YOU buy my vintage pieces. Selfish of me, sure, but it doubles my pleasure when I find an incredible 60s sheath or 40s bow tie and then pass it on to a fellow vintage-lover... if I can bear to let it go. BTW, I still have that beaded bag.

    I love travelling and finding unique vintage pieces on my trips. A background in art/design includes graphics at Butterick Patterns, clothing design at NY sportswear co.s and now selling vintage and refashioned vintage items. How lucky can a gal get?

Modern Matters
... loves to mix modern with vintage
... adores sharing amazing vintage finds with fellow vintage enthusiasts

We're serial shoppers (not kidding) and we've collected amazing clothing and accessories from our favorite decades: mostly the 1960s ~ 1990s. Cameo appearances are also made by other eras, but we keep coming back to the center of the 20th Century for the most interesting designs, patterns and color combinations.

We practice sustainability with style, by reworking vintage items with imperfections into wearable pieces of clothing or jewelry, and by reusing packing boxes and shipping materials when possible.

Have a look around at our virtual shop, and let us know what you think!
