THE GUIDE TO SHOPPING VINTAGE IN BALTIMORE
If you didn't already know, I wear a lot of vintage clothing. Vintage shopping is a hobby for me; success is really dependent on both luck and timing. The thrill of the hunt is addicting, and in addition to finding pieces that fit your style and your body, I find satisfaction in styling vintage pieces to look new. Who doesn't like a good challenge?

I've also have detailed my Top 5 Tips for Shopping Vintage!
I hope these resources serve as motivation and assistance in shopping for 1) a more sustainable closet 2) pieces with personality and 3) creating one-of-a-kind looks.
