The Rumors Are True

We (the owners, Casey & Marshe) met at a party in 2003 and had a lemonade stand the following day to make enough money to get some Chinese food.

Fast forward a few years and you’d find us sharing a bedroom, teaching ourselves graphic design, & living off of pretzels and white rice to save up for our boutique.
We opened Rumors in 2007 without owing anyone a dime, meaning we slept on the store’s floor and showered at the YMCA. We opened as an independent boutique offering locally designed products, as well as exclusive international indie lines from countries such as South Africa, Colombia, Iceland, Belgium, Finland, Tokyo, and France, that weren’t available anywhere remotely close to Virginia. In our first year we had over 400 bands play in our shop, held fundraisers for over 25 nonprofits, and were exhausted, broke and loving our lives.

After a year or so, we decided to switch our store focus to more vintage items and Rumors became Richmond's first thrift boutique! This change came pretty naturally, as we are both grown up country girls, raised with hand me downs and thrift store shopping as our only options. Eight years later, we are still trading daily with the diversely fashionable community of Richmond, traveling the States in search of lucky finds and spreading as much positive energy as we possibly can.

In September of 2013, Rumors opened it's second location in Chapel Hill, NC continuing to offer one-of-a-kind thrift pieces to as many people as we can reach.

Rumors is our life! We wouldn't have it any other way and we hope you love it as much as we do!

Due to the nature of everything we sell being one-of-a-kind vintage finds, we do not offer refunds or exchanges. We list each item with a detailed description complete with pictures of models wearing the clothing and measurements to ensure you are getting the best idea of the item you are looking at.

If you have any questions not covered in our descriptions, feel free to contact us!
We accept Paypal and payments by Credit Card.
We ship via USPS with tracking on all orders. Insurance for your nationwide package is available at an additional cost. If you are a local resident you can also come to our storefront shop to pick up your item with a week of your purchase instead of paying shipping!
If you need either of these options, please contact us before purchasing!

We ship USPS First Class International for all international packages, which normally takes 7-21 business days. However, items can get held in customs for 1-7 weeks. If you suspect an item is being held, please contact us and we'll see what we can do to help you! We are not responsible for items arriving after the 21 day mark. If you need your international package delivered by a certain date, please let us know and we will discuss other shipping options to get it to you on time!

Rumors is not responsible for lost or stolen packages.

We cannot ship real furs to certain countries due to import/export laws! These countries include Israel, Australia, Italy, France, Spain, and England. If you order a real fur and the shipping address is in one of these countries, we will have to refund you.
Furs shipped to international countries can not be shipped with a guaranteed date unless they are shipped with Priority Mail EXPRESS International. If you do not want to pay additional shipping for that option, we can not be held responsible for getting the fur to you by a guaranteed date.
Additional policies and FAQs
Rumors was the brainchild of two 21 year old girls in 2007 who shared a bedroom, mimosas and an obsession for fashion at affordable prices.
