Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Haaaaaaaaaaappy Anniversary!

Happy 9th Anniversary to Dandelion Vintage! It was 9 years ago this week that my website went online with just a single page and about 15 items from my own collection. I think I was online about 2 months before I sold my first item, which was a pair of early 1960s faux leopard fur pants! I kept moving forward adding more and more stock, and expanding and adding departments. Now I am one of the longest lasting vintage clothing website online with over 1000+ pices of stock online for purchase.
I'm lucky to have such a great job and lucky to have great friends and fans of vintage who have kept me going - with much more than making purchases, but also with friendship, support and words of encouragement through the rough times. The vintage clothing market has changed alot in the past 9 years, and this year it seems to have taken a severe turn towards trends and fads, but I am here for the long haul! I will continue to bring you a great selection of classic vintage clothing, and try as hard as I can to keep the pieces affordable enough to add to your own wardrobe.

Please click the image to check out the site and take advantage of the 25% off sale going on from now until January 5th. The discount will be subtracted in the shopping cart. Regular shipping charges apply.

Bye for now, Carol

Hey, this has nothing to do with your post, sorry, but I love your mannequin (not in a freaky stalker way, but in a fellow-vintage-clothing-seller-always-on-the-lookout-for-ways-to-better-photograph-clothing-items way). May I ask where you got her?

Thanks.

Hi Ladies,
Thanks Alison, as always for your words of support. Silly maybe because we've never met in person, but your encourangement has been very important to me.

Bettye, I bought my mannequin on ebay, about 2 years ago. I bought her (mildly used) from another clothing seller, not a regular mannequin dealer. But there are many mannequin dealers on ebay. I like her, but I get tired of her bent arm all the time. I would suggest that you look for a mannequin with straight arms. Mine also comes apart at the waist, one leg comes off and both arms come off. All that makes getting clothes on and off a little easier.

Amy, yes, faux leopard fur pants! They were very cool. A friend gave them to me. I never wore them though, they were a little wild for my style!
