I am a bit of a vintage fanatic, so it makes sense that my interest in clothing from other time periods extends to how I choose to dress Jasper. Etsy is always my first go-to for all things vintage and kiddos, but I recently found myself a little overwhelmed: there is an incredible amount of options out there! I enlisted the help of vintage fashion guru Jenny Mitchell of Frecklewonder, and she couldn’t stop raving about some of these shops!
Since vintage can run up and down the pricing ladder, I’ve arranged the shops by what you’ll pay (from lowest to highest), including shipping.
OhSydney! Vintage oozes adorable and wallet-friendliness: this size 3T pony shirt is $4, including shipping. Another fave is the children’s size 6 vintage blue Hawaiian dress. Plus, OhSydney! has a sweet collection of adult vintage clothing, like this purple disco dress I’m obsessed with.
I am a HUGE fan of turtlenecks on kids, especially cute vintage striped turtlenecks. So you can imagine my happiness when I discovered this striped size 2T top at Fuzzymama’s shop. At $10 for the shirt and shipping, it’s a steal.
Sometimes baby clothing makes me a little weepy with all of its cuteness, and this size three months vintage baby blue shirt ($14.50) from Hart and Sew is no exception. It’s quite possibly one of the dantiest shirts I’ve ever seen for a baby girl — and it’s not pink!
I’m always stoked when a shop has equal amounts of boy and girl vintage — it seems like it’s so much easier to find girl stuff, which can suck if you have a boy. BlueBirdLucy’s shop is awesome — she’s got a great girl’s section and boy’s section. What she also has is an even more incredible boy-and-girl section, which is where I found this sweet little number ($15.25):
Since I don’t have space to feature them all, here are a few more of Jenny’s picks: Accomplice Vintage, Ms Tips, AdaLou, BInspired Vintage, 3ringcircus, Kyssa Vintage, and Lishyloo Vintage. As always with all things vintage and most things Etsy: once it’s gone, it’s gooooone.
