The Archives Vintage Story

I've been an avid thrift shopper since I was old enough to walk alone to the thrift store at the end of my block growing up.

After briefly studying fashion design and then majoring in Art History at the School of the Art Institute Chicago, I married my loves of fashion, history and thrift shopping by opening Archives Vintage, an online vintage clothing boutique, in 2010.

After selling vintage garments online full-time for a few years, Archives Vintage took a year long hiatus. We've just re-opened and are so glad to be back doing what we do best!

Additional policies and FAQs
If you are looking for something specific and cannot find it here, please let me know! I have a large amount of stock and am always acquiring more, so I may have what you're looking for even though it's not listed.

Archives strives to list items in the best condition, but most vintage items have been worn and loved by a previous owner. As such, some signs of wear and age are to be expected. Any damage, stains or imperfections are noted to the best of my knowledge.

Please keep in mind that all computer monitors present colors differently, there may be a slight difference as a result.
