About wastedknot

Sales 275
On Etsy since 2020

Saving the world one vintage sequin at a time!

Wasted Knot is a Philadelphia-based online vintage shop specializing in special pieces that strike a cord - for their wow factor, their modernity, or their quality. Suckers for sparkle, you'll find plenty of lurex, rhinestones, sequins and beads - but keep an eye out for pieces from the 40s to Y2K in silk, velvet, leather, suede, cotton, and definitely a good bit of gaudily-printed polyester! Every once in a while a "future vintage" piece sneaks in - too good to pass up; we recommend buying it, wearing it, and aging it like a fine wine!

We are a Pennsylvania-registered benefit LLC interested in normalizing second-hand clothing buying to reduce environmental impact, while directing money to local communities and organizations. Making the world a bit sexier in rare vintage gems is a natural by-product of all this do-gooderism ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
