Vera and Victor are time travelers -- anachronistic treasure hunters of a bygone era. We are but visitors here, spending our days in dusty attics and our nights in dimly lit boudoirs. The aroma of antique books is our cologne, we sew our clothing with the threads of time and when we sleep, we rest our heads upon a pillow of folklore and fairy tales. Thank you for having us here.

The California Dream, for me, is about natural fabrics, beautifully draped silhouettes, creative embroidery, and love of color... all of which compliment the free-form lifestyle that we live on the edge of the continent. I specialize in pieces from 1960s and 1970s, when West Coast flower children had an intense love affair with Art Nouveau and Victorian motifs.

Anthropolotique is my made up word of blending Anthropologie with antique. In my shop and my wardrobe, I style modern pieces with affordable and wearable vintage. I love to find pieces that my friends can't believe I would buy and then style them so that they wish they had them. I add new items almost everyday, so come visit my shop and then check back often.

Finding items that inspire nostalgia or imply a lifestyle is what Katrajina&Co. is all about. If you're edgy, sexy, wild or mellow, there's a reflection of the many shades of what being a modern female is all about.

I naturally mix the influences of having been a culture absorbing teen in the 90's with my current experiences as a fashion focused young woman. Offering items I personally select to like-minded gals is challenging, exciting, and always fulfilling.

Hi! My name is Amber and I'm the one-woman circus behind Anatomy Vintage. I sell vintage clothes (and housewares!) for many reasons, but foremost, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside to sell someone a truly unique item that they cherish AND it keeps me busy busy busy!

My little Etsy shop is stocked with midwestern vintage clothing, accessories and housewares, most from the 1960's – early 70's. Many items are from my personal collection while others I've discovered in my thrifting adventures along the way. What are my weaknesses? Bright floral prints, girly dresses, and anything boho or western!

Thrifty Vintage Kitten is all about the FUN in vintage. A few years ago I stepped inside my first estate sale and never looked back. My passion was ignited! That day I left that estate with a new business and new love.

I've been scouring estate sales almost weekly since then. It's my passion to bring you the very BEST vintage out there. I'm picky in what I choose because I want my shop to represent me: a little fun, a little girly, and a little weird. Fashion is meant to be fun, right? Happy shopping!
