About

Past Pieces Vintage Keeps Evolving

So many things have changed since 2008 when Past Pieces Vintage opened its doors. At the time, the purpose was to downsize; find homes for the dinnerware, dishes, glassware, and odds and ends that I'd loved collecting.

Somewhere along the way, my interests changed. Rummaging at the thrift store that benefitted the local women's shelter, I bought a crumpled handful of silk scarves which included my first Vera scarf. I've alway had a fascination with scarves since my older sister tied her ponytail back with them. There were small silk schiffon squares in every rainbow color. The scarves were folded narrowly and the ends fell on each side of her ponytail; any movement set the wispy silk whispering against the air.

That blue and white scarf piqued my interest and I fell in love with Vera Neumann, the woman and the artist. It also reawakened my love for scarves, those wonderful silken pieces of artwork that can be worn around one's shoulders or wrist, tied on a purse handle, made into a pillow, or framed and hung on a wall. I love them all!

The love for Vera Neumann also sent me back to the decades when she was so prolific, the 60s and 70s specifically. Clothing and accessories from those decades. Linens and housewares, and yes, some dinnerware :).

I've taken the vintage pledge and everything I sell is at least 20 years old, but usually much older. I do a lot of research; pattern names; company names; dates of production; designers; logos and trademarks; RN numbers; fabric content; all the tools available to identify a particular piece.

I don't have a dedicated studio or workspace. My home is my warehouse, photography studio, and shipping department. Bins, boxes, bags, and roling racks are my friends. Labels are crucial.

I love selling vintage and will never misrepresent any garment, accessory, or otherwise. Integrity is a precious thing and I'll always be honest with you.

Now, let's go shopping, shall we?

Frequently asked questions

Do silk scarves have to be dry cleaned?

No. Silk scarves can be gently hand washed.

What if I get a stain on my scarf?

You can lightly treat the stain with a stain remover, then hand wash. Some stains may not be removed completely, but will benefit from treatment.

Acetate scarves wrinkle when washed. What can I do about that?

After hand washing and blotting your scarf on a white towel, iron it dry. The wrinkles won't be set in and you'll get a smooth finish your your scarf.

I like scarves, but don't know how to wear them.

How do I know a vintage garment will fit me?

Always go by the measurements of the garment and allow extra room for movement. Sizes change over the years and can't always be depended on for an accurate fit.
