    Hi! I'm new My name is Emily. I have a few vintage pieces I have acquired over the years, and am always tempted at the thrift store, but have zero knowledge of value, dating, etc. So, I'm hoping to learn here! A quick general question: does handmade vintage have any value? Thanks!

    Hi, I am Chandra. I have been reading Vogue since 1988 (age 12) and collecting thrift store "scores" since 1993. Sadly, before I really became obsessed, I let a lot of those pieces go. But I am fully bought in now, and love the hunt! I am not sure that the stuff I have has much of a retail value, but I love collecting.

    I probably should sell more of it....but it's hard to determine what I want to part with.

    Looking forward to showing you some of the stuff I have found, and also sharpening my teeth a bit so I can get better at picking out the good stuff during my vintage hunts.

    Thanks!
    Chandra

    Hi,

    My name is Alan and I live in California, San Francisco area. I have a great love of antique eyewear, especially pince-nez, as well as men's jewelry and watches. I do wear virtually everything I buy. Also I am an avid fan of vintage footwear and purchase most of my shoes made in the 80s and 90s in auctions like the opera pumps shown in my avatar.

    I have a blog devoted to men's fashion and historical collectibles. It is a private blog as I don't want to deal with all the crazies out there. When my blog was public I once received a death threat for wearing opera pumps! If you are interested in reading it, I'd be happy to add you as a reader. Just contact me.

    Glad to be here and look forward to making some new friends.

    Well I don't know how it took me this long to find this great resource for information on vintage fashion - not to mention all of the vintage clothinkg "eye candy"!
    My name is Ann, and I am an average "Jo" from the Mid Western US.
    I have been drawn to vintage *almost everything* for literally as long as I can remember - with fashion ranking second only to architecture.
    I have a modest personal collection of Victorian and Edwardian skirts, dresses, night gowns and waist coats; and a hodge podge of jewelry, purses, hats etc from the 20's through the 60's.
    My interest took a hiatus when I started my family 16 years ago, but has recently been rekindled thanks to being gifted a small collection of my grandmothers dresses from, most likely, the 1930's.

    When I have had a chance to peruse the forums for more information on the dresses I will start a thread with pictures - I look forward to some professional feedback on the dates and purposes of some of the items.

    I'm Jenny and I'm new! I've always loved vintage clothing and am an avid amateur seamstress. I have an eBay store where I sell the vintage finds that I rescue from thrift stores and garage sales. I'm looking to build my knowledge of designers and labels, being able to spot authentic pieces.

    New to this Forum but have been a seller on ebay and have always heard wonderful things about you from my fellow ebay clothing sellers.
    I have recently been bin shopping and feel I have to save any vintage items I find.
