Castro Valley, California - Clothing Collectible Period & Vintage search results Premier Listings

Vintage clothing is second-hand or new garments from past eras. Typically, the garments date from the 1920s to 1980s. Garments older than the 1920s are considered antique. Second-hand items are most common, but there are new pieces out there. The fashions may have been found in storage at warehouses or designer's stock rooms. Most items ended up in the trash after being worn out or going out of style. There are people who stored garments away in attics or storage units and forgot about them. Slips, lace-up boots and shoes were commonly boxed up and ignored. These items end up in shops or collections. You can purchase them and wear a bit of history to work, outings, parties and formal events. Popular articles include blouses, formal wear, pant suits, sweaters and coats. Many people shop for items are now longer available or hard to find, such as girdles, corsets and the stockings that clip to the girdles. You may find a period purse, gloves, hat or scarf. Collectors frequently scour yard sales and flea markets looking for these items. Jewelry is very marketable and often worth thousands. Finding inexpensive, old fashioned jewelry will brighten your day. Swimwear is a great find, especially for women who do not like today's skimpy bikinis. Historical swim wear covered the thighs and buttocks. Antique swim suits cover while being incredibly trendy. Look for vintage garments and accessories in second-hand stores or specialty retailers. Charity used clothing stores are often run by volunteers. They rarely understand the true value to period jewelry, jackets, dresses, suits and tops. There are great bargains to be found in second-hand stores.
