31 1 09

Ok, so for the past couple of days I have been compiling a list of British and American vintage websites. The list on my computer is much longer, but after looking through them all (153 websites to be exact!!!!) I discovered that a lot of them didn't exist any more or the quality and quantity of their clothes was so poor I didn't even bother with them.
For each one I have picked 5 of my favourite items, and now I think I might have to go on a massive shopping spree to buy them all!
So here's the crème de la crème of U.K and U.S vintage websites. If you know of any others that are good, please feel free to put them in the comments section, as I'm always eager to find out new ones. Especially any British ones, because good (reasonably priced) ones seem few and far between.
Enjoy :-)

Excellent post, Thanks! Barton and Barton and Vintage Secret are great, I'd never come across them before.

I didn't want to look at the American ones as I can't buy anything from the US anymore now the exchange rate is so bad :-(

Looks great! I've just got back from Florence and they had an amazing vintage fair, bloody expensive though! after the angels sale, any vintage seems a lot! I could only afford some 5 euro vintage missoni tights, but i saw some beautiful dresses and bags. guess i'll have to look harder in the uk...

Wow. just wow. This is so good! I never knew there were so many vintage sites, I just go on ebay but it stresses me out with the whole bidding situation.

You've got to try Hummingbird cakes. You'll never be satisfied with any other cake after you've tried it.

Consider yourself linked.
