The Joy of Vintage: How to Buy, Wear and Sell Vintage Clothing

You may have noticed that I love vintage fashion. I buy it, I wear it, I sew it, I sell it, I write about it.

So, it was only a matter of time before I made a video about it.

Now I’ve gotten over the initial shock of seeing and hearing myself on screen, I’m really excited to share it with you.

I hope you enjoy it, and please let me know what you think in the comments.

A few things…

I realised afterwards that my definition of vintage may not fit with everyone else’s and also I didn’t explain it very succinctly. If you’re a stickler about that kind of thing, which I am, you can read more about how I personally define antique/vintage/pre-loved.

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to the staff and volunteers at Barnardo’s charity shop in Cheadle. They let us film there with zero notice and were so helpful. I love that there are lots of locations from my hometown of Stockport in there, including the 20th Century Stores, and the wonderful Vintage Village which is held every month and is a must-visit if you’re in the area.

And finally, I’m working hard to get my shop stocked for summer. So do please follow the shop on Etsy or at the usual social media channels to find out when new stock goes live:
