Why Shop Vintage?
Though I do my fair share of shopping at "fast fashion" retailers, I am a firm believer in the values of vintage shopping. Buying and wearing vintage is environmentally friendly. Why buy newly manufactured clothing when so many fabulous items already exist? Vintage clothing makes it easy to express distinct personal style. How lame is it to run into someone wearing the same garment as you? Vintage items boast better quality. In the past, the manufacture of clothing was held to a higher standard. Even if a garment is decades old, chances are it will be of better quality than a brand new item.
