Snap It Up Vintage.....Everlasting Vintage for Lasting Impressions

I love vintage. It’s just plain and simple. As sole proprietor of Snap It Up Vintage, I am always on the lookout for good design, interesting pieces and clothing I would wear myself. I am a one woman shop for the most part with encouragement from friends and family and one very patient husband who understands my need to stop and shop whenever we are on the road. I love sharing my finds with the Etsy community and have met many very gracious and stylish people here. At the end of the day, the reason I’m here is because , yes, you got it….I love vintage.

My staff is all volunteer who work tirelessly, with a smile, never talking back, or sleeping on the job. They can strike a pose for hours on end and never bat an eyelash!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will find something that you love within the virtual racks of Snap It Up.

Additional policies and FAQs
Measurements are of the garment size, taken flat across then doubled for bust, waist and hip. One should always allow room for freedom of movement. The best way to ensure a garment will fit is to measure a piece of clothing that fits well and compare it to the measurements provided.

The mannequins used range from Size XS (approximately size 0-2) to S (approximately size 2-4). Quite often, especially on Medium, Large and Extra Large size garments, the item is pinned to the mannequin in the photo to show a proper fit. It is always best to go by the measurements for the best indicator of sizing/fit. Any size indicated in listings is simply our best guess of the size the garment might fit.

Our commitment is to describe to the best of our ability the condition of each item in as much detail as possible. Remember, however, that vintage clothing has often been loved and worn in another life and hence it is often not without some normal wear and tear appropriate to its age.

Categories frequently used include:
-- EXCELLENT: flawless, like new, no visible defects or flaws, wear ready
-- VERY GOOD+: minor flaws/slight imperfections and/or previous repair not obvious nor does the imperfection compromise wearability
-- VERY GOOD: shows signs of subtle aging, gently used or may need simple repairs, laundering or dry cleaning
-- GOOD: has flaws that need attention before being worn, may have holes or stains that may necessitate a professional repair, or thorough cleaning.
-- FAIR/POOR: Multiple flaws, may need reconstruction, salvaged for material or used for study. May have some historical significance or be visually appealing for display
