Other Road Stops on your vintage summer tour...

Lemondrop Vintage-  located in Central Texas I love all things vintage, from dainty fifties florals to snakeskin boots  to copies of vintage children's books.  My shop reflects my varied tastes and I am just as eclectic with what I wear each day.  I am also the stereotypical thrifter, in love with the bargain hunt.
Giveaway prize- $50.00 shop gift certificate to be used toward item and shipping, so open worldwide. Comment on her post to enter the giveaway!



Out of Order Design-  an expanding vintage store located in Santa Cruz, California. I offer mostly unique purses, though I love the charm, quality, affordability, uniqueness, and eco-friendly aspects of both pre-loved clothing and accessories. When I'm not thrifting or perusing wonderfully inspiring blogs, I love to work on my personal style and DIY blog.  Giveaway Prize: a $25 gift certificate to Out Of Order Vintage! Good towards item, shipping, and open to international entries!




Love Charles Vintage-  A vintage clothing store run by a 20 something artists living in Grand Rapids. I adore searching for pieces I know can contribute to a unique wardrobe that represents its wearer and also supports small business and sustainability through recycling. Giveaway Prize: $25 shop gift certificate.



Wayfaring Magnolia Vintage- located in Nashville, Tennessee. I love  to spend my days thrifting and going to estate sales to find the best  vintage fashions. Besides running my Etsy shop, I work in music history,  so when I'm out looking for items, I'm always thinking to myself, who  could have worn these dresses? How amazing would these shoes look in the  stage lights? It is so fun to imagine what might have been, which  always keeps my life exciting. In the Wayfaring Magnolia shop you will  find a very large variety of items for both men and women. Giveaway- $50 shop gift certificate.



Dean and Bettie Vintage- A new vintage shop located in Birmingham, Alabama. I've been scouring the south to bring you amazing vintage treasures to add to your collection. I sell guys and girls vintage clothing, accessories, shoes, and housewares. I love to know that these pieces have survived the decades and have stories to tell. We use 100% natural methods to clean and restore these items to make them fresh. I also have a blog to keep you all inspired, let you in on some baking and DIY secrets, and in the know on all updates. Giveaway Prize : $25 gift card to be used towards purchase and shipping, open worldwide! Be green and buy vintage!
