“The Joy of Vintage” video: How to Buy, Wear and Sell Vintage Clothing

You may have noticed but I love vintage fashion. A lot. I buy it, I wear it, I sew it, I sell it, I write about it.

So it was only a matter of time before I made a video about it.

I am really happy with how it’s turned out, and am excited to share it with you… now I’ve got over the initial shock of seeing and hearing myself on screen, that is.

I hope you enjoy it, and please let me know what you think in the comments.

A few things…

I realised afterwards that my definition of vintage may not fit with everyone else’s and also I didn’t explain it very succinctly. If you’re geeky about that kind of thing, which I am, you can read more about how I personally define antique/vintage/secondhand.

I also wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the staff and volunteers at Barnardo’s charity shop in Cheadle, who let us film there with zero notice. They were so helpful. I love that there are lots of locations from my hometown of Stockport in there, including the 20th Century Stores and the wonderful Vintage Village, which is on every month and is a must visit if you’re in the area.

And finally, I’m working hard to get my shop stocked for summer. So do please follow the shop on Etsy or at the usual social media channels to find out when new stock goes live:

Just a quick note to let you know I’ve got a guest post up on Barnardo’s ethical shopping blog The Thrift, giving you some upcycling inspiration to take a vintage dress from drab to fab!

Giving old clothes a new lease of life is one of my favourite things and so simple to do, even if you don’t own a sewing machine. Let me know if you give it a go.
