Online shopping can be a time consuming, fruitless exercise full of buyer's remorse. But if you happen to stumble upon something great for a great price (and shipping cost) it can be ecstacy, providing you with a unique item you'll cherish forever, or at least wear until the end of the season. Here's our take on where to get some of the best vintage online (including covetable items by designers like Bill Blass and Valentino).
Websites like Ebay both embolden and confuse shoppers with seemingly endless choices for customizable prices. Similar (but nicer) to Ebay is Etsy, an online marketplace that features independent, handmade, and vintage designs. Etsy has set prices determined by the seller rather than bidding, and the overall quality of items is far superior and unique than those on Ebay. The only problem with Etsy, akin to Ebay, are the pages and pages of choice – so we're going to let you in on a few of our personal favourite Etsy shops.
In this edition, we feature the best in vintage; stay tuned for the best in handmade, which we'll share next week.
