    Hi Marie!

    Thanks to that "someone" for pointing us out and reminding us that VFG is here, too.

    ::: yells across the room to turn that music down so I can think :::

    :^) *we are busy having too much fun*

    Heh... that'd be me. I just sold you a lot of disco shirts and I thought it was neat to see where they're going.
    I find those shirts a lot, but rarely get them as it's not really my thing... but lots are much easier so I'll keep an eye out for more :spin:
    Yours were shipped off today, btw ;)

    Love your site! Very well done! :kiss2:

    Don't forget to come back and visit!
  3. You have some pretty funky shirts on your site!!! Good to see you here!

    Thanks for the compliments everyone... it makes all of the hard work worthwhile.

    Oh, and Trendsetter!!!! ;) Need I say anything to THAT? LOL... let us know when you get a load in and maybe we can make a deal. Our customers worldwide love those 70's crazy print shirts and keeping them happy is our game.

    Lately, we've had sources coming out of the woodwork - but, truly great sources are tough to find. What's your weakness? What should we ply you with, Trendsetter? LOL

    From the beginning, we decided to be damn picky. We turn a whole LOT of vintage merchandise down, and the approach appears to be working.

    OK - time to call it a night and have a :booze::booze:

    Who, me? We're nearly ALL "Trendsetters" here!

    When I find them, I tend to find a bunch at once. I'll let you know if/when I come across more :)

    LOL! Trendsetter! OK "elsewhere" it is... this is what happens when you're tired - your attention span and comprehension goes out the window.

    Wow. We're good to go on dial up, too? This is *great* news... now get that bag off your head. Be proud.

    Another menswear blog! Great article about Joe and the platform shoes... I'll be back there checking it out.

    Hi there everyone. I'm based in the UK and I have dreams of setting up my own little boutique one day selling only the very best stuff! Can anyone give me some advice about starting up a shop, e.g. where to find suppliers?

    Hi Slim Peacock!

    What's your first name? or is that what you prefer?

    We have many members in the UK. the subject of opening a shop is not really something that can be summed up in one post.

    I think that you have to look first at your business plan - and what void would you fill that is not already there and makes you unique - before you source suppliers. In this business, suppliers tend to find you when you get your good reputation out there, unlike other areas of retail. The word does get out . Since vintage is not unlimited most times, no seller is going to give you names of the people that supply them. And one that might work for them, may not have anything for you based on your tastes. Also, really focus on what your idea of "best stuff" is. To some folks nothing newer than 1920 is considered anything special. For some its couture, for some its mint condition 80s wear. And to some its anything as long as its in top condition. It really doesn't matter - just find where your focus is so you have some sort of identity to promite.
