I get the same feeling finding something on eBay in my saved search of 99p-£1.99. (I know what you're thinking.. £1.99 is getting pretty pricey!?)
I was always a bit dubious about online vintage stores. I just wasn't sure if you'd be able to find that piece that everyone else has overlooked. And if you did, it would be at a price..
One site that you do feel like you're having a good rummage through the rails is Teapot Vintage. It's a really simple to use site with new items being added more than once a week and at some bargain prices. My favourite thing about Teapot Vintage? Their models.. They actually smile. You know, like normals? Some of my favourite bits..
Find this western inspired shirt* here for only £12..
Oh, I waaaaant.. Find them here for £25. If I hadn't tried to squeeze my feet into a size too small for me before (..they're a size 4) I'd be doing exactly that with these bad boys..
So cute AND in my preferred colours at the moment. (Black, yeah?) Find it here for only £12
Not as smiley, but definitely worth a look at the men's section. Find this fetching knitwear here for £10 (Bargain!)
Teapot Vintage don't have a shop, but if you're around the Manchester area they'll be attending the Vintage Fair in the Central Methodist Hall on Oldham Street, February 4th. Check out the blog section on the Teapot Vintage page for more details..**
Anyone else have any online vintage recommendations? What do you think of Teapot Vintage?
*Imagine that shirt with collar tips like these.
**No, I don't work for Teapot Vintage or know anyone who does. I just really like their online shop!
