Welcome to BuyVintageClothing.com.
After operating my own brick and mortar stores (Guys and Dolls and Vendima) for 13 years, I have now decided to change direction and start a new venture. I am pleased to announce my new internet store, BuyVintageClothing.com. In addition I will be vending at select shows and events. Please take a look at the site's calendar for upcoming affairs.
BVC is designed for both Men and Women who want to achieve a modern and distinctive look by incorporating vintage clothes into their wardrobe. That's why I will offer rare and collectible designer pieces along with fun and inexpensive items. With my level of expertise I will do my best to bring you a collection of wearable, classic, and trend setting items.
Here's My Story.
Growing up in San Francisco I was only allowed to wear granny-style Gunne Sax dresses and brightly colored Dittos with coordinating turtle necks. During this time I had developed the greatest admiration for Pachuco and Punk Rock culture. These hipsters became so influential at the time that I credit them for starting my passion for fashion.
From the moment I was able to make my own wardrobe choices I quickly became a collector of vintage clothing . Through my second hand finds I came to appreciate good style and quality workmanship. This led to my interest in studying fashion design as well as merchandising. Today I love to follow current fashion trends and I am just as passionate about restoring and wearing vintage. I also bring along more than 20 years of clothing retail experience.

Every piece of merchandise has been laundered, dry cleaned, or repaired if needed. My aim is to give you an accurate representation of all merchandise (including "as is" items).
