    I'm Alice, a PhD student in economic history focused on the Berlin Interwar fashion industry. I'm also really keen on 1930s and 1940s fashion.
    I'm really looking forward to using this amazing resource.

    Hi! Annie here. Have collected vintage for 5 decades. Running out of space! Nothing in the fashion world makes me happier than to pick up and hold a piece of seriously vintage fabric.

    The name's Gabe, Gabe Cartwright. I have been collecting for approx 5 years now. I mainly collect mens clothing from the 60's 70's era. I do not resell these clothes, I wear them! I love the long collars and pearlized buttons and goofy patterns they came up with! In my collection, Ive got about 5 or so brady bunch style suits, 1 suit which is from the early 50s, about 50 or so old shirts, 5 pairs of polyester pants, and plenty more... I also am a collector of mens hats, 78rpm records, and old radios, although these do not pertain to clothing;).
    I am a very small time collecter who doesn't buy off eBay or anything like that, I get them at Goodwill. That way I just happen upon stuff and get a surprise every time!
    I also like clothes from the 30s 40s 50s, but i find that these are very hard to find at goodwill.
    Most of all, I love the 20's. Sadly i do not own an article of clothing from this decade. (Unless you count my sock garters and spats) it is out of my price range but I would KILL to get a 1920's mens suit that fit me.

    I know I have been talking quite a bit but trust me, I could go on and on all day.

    Wish me luck

    Hello vintage enthusiasts! My name is Tara and I am a member of the Art Deco Society of California. I collect great 1920s, 1930s, and 1960s vintage. I also design and co-create historical costumes. I look forward to getting to know you, and to share expertise with this community. I joined today because I need help dating a vintage qipao - not my area of expertise. Thanks!

    Hi I'm Deirdre, I've been lurking on VFG for a few years now - it's THE go-to place for info - I really appreciate the work that must go into creating/maintaining it. So I thought I'd finally say hi!

    I collect & sell vintage clothing - mostly 60s 70s & 80s - but I'm an eclectic at heart so I pick from any era as long as it's got something special. I go through phases of obsession with this or that era, somehow I always fall back on 40s & 70s in my personal style. It must've been all the old movies I watched as a girl in the 70s. I was obsessed with Fred Astaire, Lauren Bacall & Bette Davis. Like most of us, I was born in the wrong era :D

    I sell on online and I hope to get into doing fleas soon so I can spend more time off the computer! I've come to the realization that vintage lovers are usually creative people who I can relate to without much effort. It's like we're all from the same tribe.

    I just realised I've not posted an intro.

    Hello! I'm Victoria. Mum of 3, who's been selling old things online for a few years now. I've always shopped second hand, I prefer things with a story behind them rather than new and shiny things. I've just started up a second online shop specialising in vintage clothes. This place is marvellous and so useful. Thank you all. :)

    Hello. I'm Nena. I love vintage clothing! I use to only buy what fit me but lately I've been also aquiring things not in my size. Don't really have a plan for them yet.

    I'm really happy I found this forum. Can't wait to discus finds and ogle at your finds.

    Hello! I'm trying to educate myself regarding vintage clothing, jewlery and bags. I do resale some to help with bills/life, but I'm more curious about the history and stories behind the pieces. Also, I keep more than I sell.

    Hello,

    I've recently started collecting vintage costume jewelry, and I enjoy reading about vintage clothing and accessories. I'd like to learn more about fashion history and would love to see photos of others' collections. I'm also looking for tips on photographing my pieces.

    Hello,
    My name is Dawn. I was just trying to find out a little more about a jacket/coat I picked up at a thrift store about 10 years ago. I found it very interesting and have never been able to find much information on it. I stumbled across this website this morning and thought maybe so!meone here could give me a little insight. Next I have to figure out how to post a few picture of it, lol
    Thanks in advance for any help!
