  1. I am loving your site! It has so much life! I wish I were closer-I would love to be able to shop there more often-but at least I get to shop your great finds at the Manhatten Vintage Show!

    Fabulous "model" shots! Great photography and great vintage! I think this is one of the best vintage clothing sites out there! Go Girl!
