    My name is Elizabeth I am a creative writing student (MFA) taking Play Writing this semester. I have a play set in 1919. I am wondering if it would be at all plausible for a college girl to wear trousers (Only briefly traveling on the train to her home covered by a long coat of that ere.) I have no idea who to reach out to with this question. Thank you if you are able to respond.

    I have no idea which other forum to post this to,

    Hey there, my name is Miranda. I love finding interesting things and piecing together their history. This site kept coming up during research, so I wanted to register and give a proper hello! :)
    My latest project is pretty fun - my mother gave me tons of shoes, clothing, and jewelry that had belonged to my "Air Force Fashionista" grandmother. Her intense style always impressed (and intimidated) me - think Joan Crawford on a farm - so it's been amazing finding out more about her life through her collections.

    Hello. My name is Amy and I have been creating vintage-style and vintage inspired clothing (mostly baby's) for about 15 years. I recently acquired an old baby mannequin I wanted to find out if I can get a date for.

    I also collect vintage clothing for myself, and love the 40s in particular. I am especially fond of swing coats and Pendleton. I have a modest collection of patterns (adults and children's) as well as old sewing instruction books, and wish I could sew more for myself than I do.

    Hello, Merry Xmas, Ho Ho Ho. I live in NYC, where I operate a small vintage shop. My partner and I have a considerable stock of vintage clothing- men’s and women’s*, and we are looking to find buyers who are interested in acquiring merchandise for their stores. We already sell to buyers from Japan and the US, however, new (local) connections are more than welcome. (*30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, high end contemporary.) We can sell as a one time thing, or supply on a regular basis. If you have an online store and would like to sell for us on commission- please do not hesitate to holler. :) We are open to any kind of lucrative collaboration!

    Hello everyone! I am a seamstress from upstate NY. I have been lucky enough to have worked in a costume shop while I was in college repairing new and old garments and now found myself a position in a vintage clothing store! It is a dream come true! I am excited to have found this forum, it is full of wonderful information, pieces, and people!

    Im an extremely passionate seller of vintage and have done so since passing from 'wearer' to 'seller' in 2010.
    Much better at buying than selling as I'm so precious about my pieces that Im not all that pushy if it feels wrong.
    I specialise in or I should say prefer 70's vintage but try to aim towards collectible labels and investment pieces. But saying that there is an amazing auction house near me every Tuesday and if I see it and love it I tend to buy it. hence having a showroom with about 10 6ft rails containing a bit of everything for everyone.
    I sell on line via Etsy and sometimes ebay, as well as the attending the high end vintage fairs in London, but also have a vintage horse box that is converted to a shop that I take on the road with me in summer.
    I was a member of many groups associated to this group on Facebook but kept getting blocked without really knowing why so Im hoping utilising this forum will be a little easier and clear, and it'll be lovely to have some other people to chat with about these hangs I love

    Hello,
    My name is Francisca and have both a brick and mortar and an Etsy shop called Bee & Mason selling vintage clothing and accessories from decades predating 1980s. My favorite are 1920s-1950s. I’ve used the guild as a learning resource and was encouraged by a friend to join.
    Look forward to being part of a community that loves vintage like myself.

    Hi I’m Elizabeth Ramos-Boyce, I’m 51 with two grown adult kids a 25 year old son and a 20 year old daughter.... still living at home after college.... no complaints.... I appreciate the time. I sold vintage designer clothing back in 2007 online on my own website (removed by admin. Please read posting rules) Stopped selling on my private site but decided to reopen this month. So I’m opening all my vintage bins of clothing and this site was helpful back then and now in dating and researching the era of some of my pieces

    My name is Valerie. I'm just starting out collection and selling vintage fashion. So far I'm only selling on eBay. I'm here to learn about vintage fashion and how to identify vintage. I'm so thankful for this website. It's so helpful! I would like to focus on clothing and accessories from the 70s - 90s so I'm really trying to learn how to distinguish between modern clothing and those era's.
