    The Paraders: Vintage and Original

    The Paraders began as an Etsy shop on January 2, 2010. Since this date, The Paraders have grown out of a Chicago vintage shop and into a Portland vintage-inspired design shop.

    We designed and created a Paraders Original Collection and were fully funded by a Kickstarter campaign back in September of 2012!

    New beginnings are coming to The Paraders...we just opened up our vintage-inspired shop of circle skirts and pinup skirts! I'm working on another full collection of dresses and separates for a Spring/Summer 2016 line and am dying to show it off! To hear more about new projects, follow our journey via the blog at

    Also, get first dibs on new skirts and email-only coupon codes! If you’re down, I’ll email you once a week with the blog and shop highlights + extras that are only shared through email. Sign up here :

    We look forward to working with all of you vintage lovers out there!
