mother, Beth and I have always loved antiques and unique vintage
finds. Ever since I was a small child my mother used to take me
to yard sales and swap meets. Always looking for that unique one
of kind item. For the last 40 years we have been buying, selling,
and collecting antiques.
Ten years ago I quit my job to come work with my mom full time in
the vintage clothing business. It was the best decision I could
have ever made. This has been a great opportunity to learn the business
and become closer with my mom. We
shop together throughout the US looking for quality merchandise.
It is always a treasure hunt as you never know what you will find
We have worked with and sold to many costume designers, such as
Academy Award® winners Deborah Scott and Colleen Atwood and other such notables as Judianna Makovsky. Our
clothing has appeared in many films from “Titanic” to “Chicago.”
We also sell to many fashion designers who use vintage clothing
for their inspiration. Museums have also purchased from us to expand
their collections for all to enjoy.
I have recently been participating on the PBS show Antiques Roadshow as an appraiser for Clothing and Textiles. This has been a experience of a lifetime to be part of such a reputable organization and a group of knowledgeable, experienced appraisers. I feel honored to have been chosen. It has been fun meeting new people from all over the US and seeing their treasures.
Our business has expanded to the internet; in 1999 my husband and
I created our web site to offer more of our vintage collection for
sale online. Since then we have been selling on ebay under the user
name 1860-1960. Our feedback rating with ebay is impeccable. We also sell throughout the year at local
vintage clothing shows and the Rose Bowl Flea Market every second Sunday in booth G4. We are always on
the lookout for new items to purchase. We have earned a reputation for being
honest and knowledgeable, as well as professional, friendly and
you for visiting our website and we look forward to doing business
with you soon!
