Best Vintage Shops On Etsy!

I don’t mean to sound platitudinous, but shopping for vintage clothes is not an easy affair. Looking for that perfect Lilli Ann suit, a 1930s velvet gown that will be just the right size and colour or, a Victorian funeral cape in mint condition can be very time-consuming.

All of it can be quite a challenge, especially now that I don’t have easy access to my beloved vintage fairs in London which were my main source of vintage treasure hunting. Since the big move, however, my relocation from London to Warsaw, it was Etsy that came to the rescue!

Best Vintage Shops on Etsy List Update 2023

There are many wonderful vintage shops that I discovered since publishing this article in 2017, and I will be adding them bit by bit.

Here are a few from the top of my head:

I love Daniela’s shop that is filled with 1930s coats and 1940s dresses. In fact, I found one of my favourite vintage coats in her shop!

If you are looking for the perfect Victorian cape, an Edwardian evening gown or anything from the 1920s-1940s, this is the shop for you!

It’s impossible to visit Susan’s Etsy shop and not find that dream piece!

The beauteous early 1940s dress is my latest purchase from her fantastic shop.

I found several vintage dream suits, like the one in the picture below, and CC41 lingerie gowns in Clara’s shop. She has excellent taste and if I could, I would buy every 1940s garment from her shop!

I’m utterly obsessed with Emma, the vintage lingerie expert behind Dreamdate & Nylon Nostalgia shops. So many wonderful and reasonably priced slips and knickers from the 1940s through to the 1960s!

Here is my interview with Emma who gave her expert advice on How to Shop for a Vintage Slip!

Etsy Comes to the Vintage Shopper’s Rescue!

I was a devoted observer, browsing through Etsy’s vintage shops for about a year before I signed up as a buyer. It became almost an obsession to find and build a “favourites’ folder with my vintage dream dresses, suits and coats.

That’s the beauty of Etsy. You can easily save your favourite shops and items to folders you create for yourself. So for example, I have one that’s only for Victorian capes, another for 1940s suits and the list goes on. I’m basically creating my dream wardrobe, but not being a particularly practical person, I tend to go for pieces that are of a museum-quality, clothes that I would make very little use of. And that’s why the folders on Etsy help me to compare and decide.

  1. What is it I really need at a particular time in my life?
  2. Can I live without it?
  3. Is it going to be the most impractical item that will spend 99% of its life hanging on a mannequin?

Why I Love The Vintage Shops on Etsy!

If you are as passionate about vintage clothes from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s with Victorian items thrown into the mix, you will love my list of best vintage shops on Etsy!

The reason behind my choice of the vintage shops you will find on my list is very simple, every single time I look for specific garments from my favourite periods in time, I always end up finding the most ravishing, original, vintage clothes in those shops.

I’ve also discovered what an incredible community it really is, we are all so passionate about wearing history, supporting slow fashion and be it by accident or with full consciousness, we also become eco-friendly, reusing existing clothes, mending them, turning into new designs, rather than buying cheap mass-produced clothes, that will probably end up in the bin within a month of its purchase.

As I always say, quality before quantity

Focus on finding your personal style, rather than getting lost in the new trends that become old trends before you even get to wear your new dress.

That’s where vintage fashion can help you create a very original and unique look. I know, that some people in the vintage community disapprove of anyone who pairs the old with the new or is not historically accurate with how clothes from one era are being paired with accessories from another, but there are also people like yours truly, whose style is of mixing true vintage clothes with something contemporary, as long as it’s of the best quality.

I will always have a fondness for my Wheels & Dollbaby or Vivienne Westwood pieces because they complement the true vintage in a unique way. Whatever category you fit with, the vintage shops on my list will help you complete your wardrobe or even build it from scratch! 

Thank you very much to everyone on the list for allowing me to use your beautiful pictures and I hope that this article will be a lot of help to all of you, vintage shoppers!

The Moodboard

If I were to describe my look and style it would be a mix of my Holly(wood) Trinity: Joan Crawford, Rita Hayworth and Marlene Dietrich with a dash of Morticia Addams.

I present you with a mood board of what I’m looking for when I browse through vintage shops on Etsy!

Old Hollywood Movie stars
My mood- board, style inspiration. Joan Crawford, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich, lots of glamour, drama and of course Lilli Ann!

Dreamy selection of antique and vintage clothes.  Every time I go back to Ruby’s Etsy shop for inspiration I have a sudden urge to listen to Stevie Nicks. 🙂 Really looking forward to seeing how the shop expands over time.

Edwardian dress. Best vintage shops on Etsy.
Very romantic Edwardian two-piece dress made of gauzy cotton lawn fabric.

I know, that my readers are very refined, people of class and good taste so there is no need for introducing Stevie Nicks but at least  I can tell you a funny and sad at the same time anecdote. Last year I witnessed a conversation between two teenage girls and it went like this:

Girl a) ” Have you ever heard of  Stevie Nicks?

Girl b) No, Oh hold on! Isn’t she an actress on American Horror Story?

Girl a) Yeah but you know she’s like this new musician too.”

And people wonder why sometimes I go all Joan Crawford on them! 🙂

    My Mom was born in 1911. I came when she was 39. She was 98pounds tiny and wore fashions like what you have featured. Thank you for the trip down memory lane. Wish I could afford some and do justice to their elegant style.
    Ps She was an accomplished seamstress and could see something in a magazine, cut it out on newspaper, and replicate the exact outfit! Such talent. She sewed all of my ballet and tie dance costumes from the sketches of the instructor.Other mothers waited fo her to pass her handmade patterns to them!

      What an amazing story!

      Did you keep any of your mom’s clothes? I can only imagine how incredible her wardrobe must have been! I wish I had a talent for sewing because there are so many original vintage patterns out there, but sadly, I can’t as much as attach a button.

    Selling vintage is one of the most challenging yet fulfilling career choices I’ve ever made in my life. And I know I’m not the only vintage seller who feels that way! Thank you Dominique, for giving gratitude to many of us sellers who work so hard to create the world that is our shop. It’s special to see so many of my own favorite shops listed as well – I am honored, and am SO happy I found your blog! Blessings to everyone –xoxo, Jenn The Vintage Net
