Girl meets Dress.

I always felt out of place, but I was really out of date.

I was raised by an antique loving Mother and a sharp dressing Father, so I suppose the result is only natural. My Mother infused my childhood with old books, TCM, depression ware, and a general reverence for the past, while my Dad built in me an appreciation for Andy Griffith, tailoring and military details.

My Vintage shop (originally named Wishflower Vintage) was born in August of 2011 in order to rescue dusty garments from attics and give them a new lease on life. My main goal from the get-go was the same as it is today: to get these beautifully crafted pieces into the closets of people who will love and wear them again! By finding and selling these unique garments, a little bit of the class and quality of yesterday can be had by all who desire it.

After almost two years, I renamed my shop Curio Vintage in April of 2013. I strongly resonate with valuable, yet dusty things (curios)-- that blend of beauty and imperfection speaks to my heart and reminds me why I so love working with vintage clothing-- Authentic stories and real people.

On an average day, you could find me painting, writing, pondering the inner workings of humans, talking to God, or twirling around my living room in newly-found dusty dresses (don't worry, I wash them after that!).

    I'm just a girl who values days long past, and sharing that love with others. I'm drawn to things of age because of the honest stories they tell + the kindred spirit I've felt for their charming strangeness and rough edges. I'm a Curio too, I guess.

Additional policies and FAQs
My greatest hope is for my customers to be delighted with their purchases! -^_^- I strive to give accurate photos, measurements and info for each item that I list. It is common for vintage clothing to have flaws or stains, all of which I take care to disclose (and I look closely) in each listing. That being said, please know that it's possible for my human eyes to miss small things. If you feel that the item you purchased was horribly misrepresented, please contact me right away so we can work it out! :)

The best way to know if a garment will fit you, is to measure a similar garment that fits you well and compare to the measurements listed. All my measurements are taken flat and doubled in the case of bust, waist and hips.

All my items have been dry cleaned or hand washed with care!
