One of the many things I love about the internet is the easy 1, 2, 3 click of a mouse shopping damage you can do from behind the privacy of your personal computer.
There is no salesgirl judging or eyeing you. If you don’t like something, you can close the page or in my case move onto the next item.
Although I live in NYC, a.k.a. a Vintage Vixen’s dream, I have found that some of the best vintage shopping I have done is online! I am about to share one of my secret vintage shopping sites with you. It’s called http://www.Etsy.com…
I have been a regular on Etsy for many years. I even owned my own vintage shop on this deliciously wonderful little site. The greatest part is that each shop is owned and operated by someone like you and me. Stay at home moms to college gals set up shop on this site and sell their beautiful handmade items or … drum roll… Vintage finds!
You can find anything from a FABULOUS vintage 50’s hats
to a vintage pair of 80’s aviators…
The finds and possibilities are endless!
I also came across this one particular shop on Etsy called Persephone Vintage (http://www.persephonevintage.etsy.com).
They have an AMAZING collection of vintage items- from coats to bags -this girl knows what she is doing. I love the fact that many of her items are relevant to the trends right now. I also heart the fact that she has some reconstructed vintage pieces for sale. All of her items are one of a kind, so you don’t have to worry about your bitchy arch nemesis walking down the street in your same exact get up. Here are a few of my favorites items:
Magic Dance Vintage Oleg Cassini dress, $249.99 (NYE, anyone??)
