Know The Value Of Vintage! Help When Buying or Selling Vintage

I can no stress it enough when it comes to vintage, Know What Its Worth!!!!
It is not hard these days to simply look something up
With access to Smart Phones, Ipads and Laptops
 We have the tools now to do research on the road
and in the field. 
Its made my job faster and easier than ever!
I always recommend auction house websites,
These sites are great because they get real prices from real buyers

WorthPiont, this does require a monthly fee 
Vintage Fashion Guild, No prices but great reference on labels, signatures, authenticity
Where on ebay and etsy you get uneducated sellers and buyers
These sites are great and I use both of them to buy and sell 
but you make a transaction on the WANT for the item not always the VALUE of the item
Heres a great example!
Etsy...

Ebay...

Point made I hope
Happy Hunting!!!

About The Owner

My photo
I graduated from FSU with a degree in Apparel Design and combined my love for vintage with my love for dress making in youthanizeing vintage garbs. I have always had a passion for the eras before me since I can remember. The daughter of my father who collects and restores old classic cars and my mother who filled her home with the most fascinating antiques, I guess it just seemed natural.
