The mission is simple: find classic styles, and if possible, a hint of bohemia. It can't be damaged, and, under no circumstances, can it have that smell. You know the smell, right? Musty, overly sweet in the dirtiest way, and usually smokey.
Our vintage items over the years have been some of my favorite. My most rememberable find was a Cadillac dress from the 1940s. It was designed by the then CEO of the company for a model to wear.
It sold and shipped to Australia in 2011 for $525.00, and not a day goes by that I regret selling it.
These days I mostly search for shoes, belts, and t-shirts. Sometimes I find "vintaged" items or purposely worn goods that I fall in love with, but I try to keep focused on the more elusive vintage finds.
