Want to know the behind the scenes of being a buyer?

The BIG idea: Postcard Vintage is an endeavor to blend 3 of my loves in life: Fashion, Travel and Photography.
Fashion=past[vintage]+present[trends]+future[Coveted Judy Jetson's wardrobe]
Travel: this shop=platform to visit the rich vintage markets in all regions of the US=satisfies the itch to visit new places.
Photography=documentation+emotion. I want to bring my journeys to you and give you an inside view of what goes behind being a vintage buyer.

So, why Postcard Vintage? Consider the shop themed by region, depending on where I travel to and the products being offered here are sentiment of my trip, like a postcard...Plus you get a nighty postcard with your purchase.

Products: Carefully selected, not bought in bulk or quantity, but rather with thought and style in mind. Items are reflective of a theme or inspiration of the moment, which is found in many different sources (film, art, photography, the Etsy community, you the buyer, fashion, retail, runways, music).

How I Shop: Here is the breakdown: 1. Regionally, 2. Thematically (Color, trend), 3. Silhouettes. Essentially, if I love it and can't live without it, its going to get bought.

Quality: NO crispy paper like fabric oh so popular in the 1970s and 60s. YES on beautiful construction, make and details. And definite YES on POTENTIAL. Every item in my shop has the potential to be worn a multitude of different ways. If you are at a lost for ideas, send me a convo, and I'll be happy to help.

MEASUREMENTS


All measurements are approximate and taken while the garment is lying flat, then doubled (with the exception of length, shoulders, rise, inseam). This is how I take them... 



Length: typically taken in the back center of the garment, from the neck seam down to the hem. If there is no neck seam, I will approximate it and measure to the hem. (In regards to pants or shorts, the length is taken on the *side* from the top of the waistband, down to the bottom hem.)



Bust/Chest: usually measured directly under the armpits of the garment, then doubled.

Waist: measured at the natural waistline (usually the narrowest part of the garment), and doubled. (In regards to pants or shorts, the measurement is taken at the waistband directly.)



Hips: measured about 7 to 9 inches or so from natural waist, and doubled.


Sleeve Length: from the shoulder seam top, down to bottom of cuff.

Shoulders: measured in back, at approximate shoulder blades, from seam to seam, typically at the narrowest point.

Rise: measured in front from the waist band down to the crotch seam.

Inseam: measured from the crotch seam down to bottom of cuff/hem.



*If you have any questions or need additional measurements, please let me know.

Love,
