The Little Guide To Vintage Shopping
The Little Guide to Vintage Shopping was given to me by my brother’s girlfriend and took my appreciation for vintage to the next level. In the pocket-sized manual, vintage-clothing dealer Melody Fortier illustrates just what to look for, what to avoid, and what to pay when you’re perusing the racks at fashion boutiques & flea markets. There’s also great insider tips for beginning shoppers like quality evaluation and care advice. My favorite section, Reinventing the Past, shows how to update your retro finds by pairing them with new pieces (something I can certainly relate to).
