Unique Vintage & Handmade Goods

There once was a girl who lived by the sea,
but then moved to the mountains as she longed to be free.

She worked in an office as to pay all the bills,
but longed for a job that made her fulfilled.

She hunted for vintage in all her spare time,
and started this shop to share finds online.

She finally quit her day job to follow her heart,
and now finding pretty vintage is her full time art!

UPDATE: I am thrilled to announce that The Braided Bandit will now be carrying handmade items too! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! The Braided Bandit is a carefully curated selection of vintage clothing and accessories from the 1940s to the 1990s. Run out of Colorado, The Braided Bandit strives to bring you hand selected pieces that are both affordable and one-of-kind! Many of the pieces I find I also alter and change a bit as to keep their vintage charm, but also make them more wearable for the modern day gal!

Your order will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail, which takes 2-3 business days for your order to arrive once it has been shipped out. A tracking number is also included with all U.S. orders.

International orders are shipped via USPS First Class International Mail, which is the most affordable shipping option for you, but does NOT come with insurance. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. If you would like to add insurance or select a faster shipping method, please contact me prior to purchasing for a price quote and I can adjust the listing accordingly.

Additional policies and FAQs
△ All of the items at The Braided Bandit are vintage so there is some wear.

△ I examine each item very carefully before listing it. I will, to the best of my ability, clearly state the condition that the item is in! If there is any sort of defect that is visible I will let it be known under the "condition" section of the listing. Refunds will only be given for defects/ issues that were overlooked and not clearly noted.
