This guide will explain how to accurately seek out and identify quality vintage clothes. Whether you want a dress, shirt, or designer bag, vintage sellers ought to have what you want.

When you are looking for vintage clothes, it's important to scrutinize the quality of the item. Keep your eyes peeled for snags in fabric and other intrinsic manufacturing errors. Also look out for stains and tears, which may often be located in the lining of clothing. Damaged clothing is much cheaper, but the obvious downside is that it is damaged, and not as attractive to the wearer. Sellers will almost always mark down clothing that is damaged unless it is a famous designer piece. Consider the age of your vintage clothing and weigh that against how you wear it. Old clothing is frequently fragile, and you don't want something you have paid dearly for to fall apart. However, most clothing being sold is of good quality and sturdy build. In fact, much vintage clothing was made with more skill and care than contemporary clothing!

Local flea markets and swap meets are convenient repeat-sellers of vintage clothing. Sometimes colleges or other organizations host fundraising flea markets for their students. This is a great opportunity for you as a buyer. Individual sellers will come together at these types of events and display their inventory. At these events, keep your eyes peeled for familiar names - things with labels like "Dior," "Pucci." and "Schiaparelli" will fetch hefty prices on resale. Designer names in general will sell for high prices, especially vintage items. Vintage nightdresses are also easy to find, attractive, and cheap. Many sellers own their own vintage stores. Look around your neighborhood for hidden independent vintage stores. Specialty stores may be a bit pricier but generally have consistency in the quality and quantity of their items.

The online market is a painless and easy way to find and purchase clothing. Most real-life vintage stores have online counterparts, where you can purchase something that you saw in the store. The internet auction site, eBay, has a vastly diverse selection of things. Vintage hats, gloves, shawls, dresses, skirts, purses, and even opera glasses are available, in addition to a host of other items. Bidding can sometimes drive the price of items up very high. However, with a skilled eye and discerning bidding strategy, you will more often than not be able to buy a cute item for less than thirty dollars. For the purchaser who does not enjoy playing the bidding game, many sellers offer a "buy it now" automatic purchase option.

With these tips, you'll be sure to find yourself the nice vintage garment you were looking for.
