Recently, I found a great site for shopping for vintage items or clothing inspired by vintage design aesthetics.

They have three things which I love. First off, they were started by two normal people who took a risk and became entrepreneurs. People who loved vintage style. This makes there stuff a little quirky and offbeat. It also means supporting small businesses and fashion designers rather than some huge global corporation who makes all their stuff in some sweatshop paying people 50 cents a day.

Second, they still have a section of actual vintage (the majority of their sales are stuff which is new, but still cute). And believe me the real vintage items go like hotcakes. Most items last a day or two. Its also a good research tool for seeing what people are buying and how much they are paying.

Third, I really like their “Be the Buyer” section. It features new designs which they are considering selling. You get to vote on what you like or don’t like. So, it gives you not only a sneak peek of what styles are up and coming. But also a little bit of influence.
