    Hi everyone! Not sure if I am introducing myself the correct way, but here goes!
    I'm Kelli and I love treasure hunting for unique vintage items. I have a shop on a few of the usual suspects and try to research before I list an item so I am sure to give as accurate and complete description I can. Thanks so much for this forum, I can't believe this is my first time coming across it!

    Thanks a lot for the answers to my question. I was looking for a good forum. I found. I registered on several forums, but... everything is very complicated. One forum, I could not register.

    Your forum is convenient, comfortable, friendly, and interesting. You are best !!!

    I collect WW2, so I can't participate in discussions. I only have 3 civilian hats. Anyway. I liked the atmosphere here. I will come and read, learn new things, it is always useful.

    Thank you :)

    Hi there. I am happy to have found this site. I dabble with vintage fashion and upcycle garments to sell as well as buying and selling vintage garments. I designed garments using men's shirts and adding vintage lace and embellishments. I even wrote a book with my designs in it. I am mostly glad to be here to get information about vintage garments and such to be able to decide on how old garments might be etc.

    Hello all! I'm Tara and I believe I have finally found my people. I want to express my gratitude for the incredible resource that you have created. As an avid vintage thrifter living in New Jersey, I often find myself searching for more information on the rare vintage pieces I come across. And time and time again, I find myself landing on your website, which has been an invaluable source of knowledge. My favorite pastime is ducking in and out of any and all the thrift shops along the Hudson Valley and Bergen County. The information and resources provided on your site have been instrumental in expanding my understanding of designer and vintage pieces. I am thrilled to be here as a guest, and look forward to getting to know more about the community of people who share my interest. The dedication and expertise of the collective is truly remarkable - so interesting and helpful to vintage enthusiasts like myself. I am excited to continue exploring the site/forums and learning from the archives!

    Hi, I'm Mary and recently started selling some of the vintage items I've collected over the years on Etsy. I would like to continue to learn more about vintage clothing so I can accurately describe items for sale. I love going to local estate sales and want to continue learning about vintage items I shouldn't pass by.

    Hello, I'm Lolo from Canada. I've been a vintage collector for 25 years. I also used to do some buying for a friend's shop in Japan. My partner and I recently took over his grandparent's home and been trying to catalog all their vintage clothes and furniture. I love 30s-40s velvet jackets, 60 and 70s printed tops, and 60s swing coats. Looking forward to learning from you all!
