Vintage for any and every one!

I grew up in Boston with vintage in my blood. I come from a long line of vintage enthusiasts and it took me years to finally give up on fighting what I was born to do. It wasn't until I was 24 and living in Providence that I realized that I love vintage everything!

It started with watching old movies with my mom on her nights off and gushing over the gowns and furs the starlets wore. I didn't realize I was so into it until I discovered my love of the hunt! Walking into a thrift shop or church flea market I realized there were tons of treasures to be uncovered! A 1950s handbag here, a 1960s evening gown there, or a pair of 1940s heels that I just couldn't leave without!

I try my hardest to give my customers exactly what they are looking for. I handpick every item that comes through my shop and describe them to the best of my ability. Each piece is one of a kind and hard to find. I enjoy every item I supply and I hope you will too!

Come on in and take a look around! Enter my shop here:

Additional policies and FAQs
All measurements are taken with the item lying flat and doubled where necessary.

Vintage clothing fits differently than modern clothing. Modern clothing is cut loosely to fit a wide variety of body shapes, while vintage clothing is cut closer to the body. For this reason, it is important that you allow enough wearing ease to move comfortably while wearing your vintage garment. Vintage garments should always be worn with care and consideration of their age.

Vintage garments were often tailored to fit an individual woman and evidence of seams and darts being taken in or out is not uncommon. For this reason, it is often possible to have a vintage garment altered to fit you if your measurements are off by just a bit. I am happy to answer any questions about available seam allowances, darts, and hem allowances before you purchase.

Need help with measurements?:

• Bust: Lay the dress flat, and measure from arm pit to arm pit.
• Shoulder: Shoulder seam to shoulder seam
• Sleeve: Cuff to shoulder seam
• Length: Shoulder to bottom hem
• Waist: Smallest part of the bodice - double this measurement
• Hips: Approximately 8" below the waist (the widest part of the pants/skirt/dress) double this measurement

Need help with shoe measurements?

- Color may appear slightly different in person than on the screen, depending on your monitor's settings.

Minor repairs are performed by a professional seamstress prior to listing. All items are described as is, all stains, tears, holes, etc are listed in note section of listing. Please keep in mind that vintage garments are not new and have most likely been worn. If you are concerned about an items condition please feel free to contact me with questions or request additional photos.

Also keep in mind that vintage pieces may not last another lifetime. If you try on your item and pop a seam or bust the zipper it is not the responsibility of SemiPreciousGarnetts. All items are packaged in functioning order unless otherwise disclosed in the listing.
