    Hello and welcome to the forums, @gelliot ! Though I live in the city, I can relate to "practical" vintage... I have sold a lot of those things that are not easy to wash/clean, because I like wearing my vintage every day to the office (hopefully again soon once we get this pandemic in check!).

    Hello I am new here today and I’m looking forward to learning more about jewelry especial designer or maker’s marks and identifying etc.. getting to know others too. I love to buy jewelry lots and then turn around a sell them by piece or small groups. Funny that I don’t wear jewelry myself but I just love it.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm so happy to have found this forum.

    I'm from England and have always been interested in all thing vintage, rummaging in auctions, jumble sales and charity shops is a passion.

    Since the pandemic started I have developed a love for vintage silk scarves to use as face coverings.

    Hello! This place seems like such a nice resource. I am on a few discord communities devoted to makeup and fashion, but as I have become more interested in vintage specifically, I am very happy to find this place! It ever seems relatively active! It looks like there are many knowledgeable people in this thread alone.

    I have admired vintage fashion and fashion history for years now, but just decided to finally take the plunge collecting as a result of the pandemic. I made the mistake of trying to buy repro, but most of those ended up not looking quite right.

    I've since collected quite a few dresses from Etsy and local vintage sellers. Most need a little bit of mending, I'll make sure to try to share my collection soon.

    My area of interest, or at least the silhouette that fits me the best, is the 1930s - early 1940s. I do have a couple of 1920s dresses as well.

    Any recommendations for great vintage shops in Portland or Seattle are very welcome!

    Hello, everyone! I'm Moony and I'm kind of knew to the vintage clothing scene. With that said, I have always had a love for 60's-90's era clothing and would love to incorporate some of that fashion into my wardrobe someday. Been on the lookout for a particular vintage item and I'm hoping this place can help me with finding it and others!
    I'm a little quiet, so I apologize in advance for any long spans of radio silence.

    Thanks for having me, can't wait to explore and learn more here!
