About

Strangeways Vintage specializies in women's vintage clothing and accessories. Hand picked from my own collection or rescued from flea markets and estate sales. Wares date from the 1940s-1980s with a special focus on 60s Mad Men-esque attire. Saving the past from the landfill one glorious frock at a time!

Each garment is handled with love and care in a smoke-free home. I wash everything according to label instructions or, in their absence, use my best judgement with regard to material. I use a gentle plant based laundry detergent with no fragrances, dyes, or harsh ingredients. More delicate pieces are hand washed and air dried. I am picky in my selection process but occasionally a garment will need stain removal. If I am unable to make it like new again, I make note of it in the description and include photos. If a piece has a hem or seam coming loose, I shore it up. I disclose any imperfections to the best of my ability including signs that something was repaired or altered by the original owner. Your purchase will arrive fresh, clean, and ready to be worn.

    I've been collecting and wearing vintage for over 20 years. I got my start in high school, combing the racks at local thrift stores to build a fun and unique wardrobe. My passion has only grown since then.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

- as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.


If you have any questions, please contact me through the Etsy Convo system.

Frequently asked questions
Are your prices firm?

We pride ourselves on our low prices. We believe that vintage clothing should be accessible to all who love it.

We regularly mark down older/out of season stock. We also periodically hold sales. We typically announce sales on Instagram @strangewaysvintage

In addition, we also have coupon codes from time to time. Feel free to send a message asking about any current promotions.

Sizing details

We do our best to accurately measure each garment. In order to err on the side of simplicty, we round up to the next half inch. For instance, a bust measuring 34.8" will be listed as having a 35" bust.

We focus on bust, waist, and length measurements because they have the greatest impact on fit. Feel free to message us for additional measurements.

We try to estimate the nearest modern US size but please bear in mind that modern sizing varies widely.

The BEST way to determine fit is to measure something that fits you laying FLAT and get a firm idea of your measurements and how you like garments to fit.

Wholesale availability

We love working with other vendors and the entertainment industry! If you have a brick-and-mortar shop you need to stock or are a costume buyer for a film/TV project, please contact us for wholesale pricing.

Care instructions

All vintage is cleaned prior to being sold, unless otherwise noted in the listing, with natural detergents free of dyes and fragrances. Wash and care recommendations for individual pieces are in listing descriptions. When in doubt, hand washing is *usually* fine.
