    The Vintage Fashion Guild was born on July 8th, 20o2 and started as a group of eclectic vintage fashion sellers. Since then we've grown to become a worldwide organization of vintage fashion sellers and professionals with a myriad of vintage fashion information within.

    The first hint of the Vintage Fashion Guild online appeared like this.

    Two years later our website came to life.

    Over time our website made great changes.

    In 2004 it looked like this.

    We've had a variety of VFG logos too.

    The Vintage Fashion Guild has now become a common name in the vintage fashion community.
    Whether you're a vintage fashion seller, buyer, historian, or collector we can all come together to learn, share, and continue to grow.

    As a long time member it is so fun to see these older shots! I have loved the friendship, learning and professionalism of this organization since day one! VFG is a major factor why vintage clothing remains valued and popular today ---- so much more than a pretty dress! Thanks to all who keep it rolling so smoothly!!

    So proud to be a part of the VFG, I still remember how excited I was when my application was approved. It was 2005 I think!

    Not only have I learned a TON through my many years here, but there's nothing quite like having a community of vintage-loving friends that spans the globe!

    Seeing how our webpage has evolved is such a treat--thanks, Caryn!

    Happy Birthday, VFG!
