Awesome, awesome dress. Bought it too big and had it tailored, so it fits like a glove! Great price, great condition, still had tags on it. Looked just like the picture. Thanks so much for my new favorite dress!!!!

About

How Stranger Than Vintage Became Strange

The story is simple. I love shopping for vintage items. I love it so much that I would always pick up items that didn't fit me or I really didn't have a use for just because I thought they were great and I'd be able to give them to one of my friends to love. Eventually, the piles just kept growing and I was running out of willing friends. And that's how the shop was born! I thought if I couldn't find any friends to take these items, I'd definitely be able to find good homes from them with Etsy members!

Three years later, the piles are still growing and my friends still get unwanted gifts, but now I shop with an eye for things I think lots of people will love. Every item I pick up, I would keep if it fit or I had a place for it. Since I don't, I hope to find them great homes with you!

Most items are in fantastic vintage condition, a handful have been mended, and a few need some love to get a few more good years (but they were just too good to pass up). I never pick up something I wouldn't want myself and I hope that love shows in the shop listings.

Thank you for taking the time to look around. I hope you find something you love too!

Welcome to my shop! If you're browsing through, I hope you love vintage as much as I do. I started this shop because I realized that there are so many great vintage pieces out there and, unfortunately (even though I've tried to), I can't fit into all of them! So I figured if I can't have them, they should definitely find a good home. I hope you find something that'll make you look and feel amazing!
