Vintage Fashion Guild

The Vintage Fashion Guild is an international organisation for vintage fashion sellers dedicated to the promotion and preservation of vintage fashion.  It has wonderful resources, particularly the A-Z  Label Resource where you can identify and date fashions by the photographs of their labels. There is also an A-Z Fabric Resource which helps you to identify fabrics, a Fur Resource, Lingerie Guide, Fashion History, interesting public forums and a blog.

 

Vintage at ASOS

Gateway to a super collection of international online boutiques where you can find fashion treasures from all eras. You can also sell vintage clothing and accessories by applying for a marketplace account.  A boutique costs £20 per month and, when you make a sale, you’ll pay 20% commission.  You get an editable boutique storefront and boutique blog to tailor your boutique to your brand too, so it’s a great way to get started as a vintage dealer. Fur free.
