About Quinby Vintage

buy vintage clothing online

Quinby Vintage, est. August 2019, is a celebration of the art self-expression where clothing is the medium. It doesn’t matter where you’re going, who you’re with, or what your plans are — we believe that every day is an occasion as long as you’re willing to make it one.

If you’re not afraid of bold patterns, bright colors, statement-making clothing, and being over-the-top no matter who is (or isn’t!) watching, then you’ll feel right at home at Quinby Vintage. And even if you prefer to dress on the quieter side, you’ll still have a hell of a lot of fun here. Though be warned: we might just convert you to our outlandish ways! That’s because we believe the phrase “I can’t pull that off” should be kicked to the curb where it belongs.

Your personal style, age, gender, profession, and the opinions of others should never stop you from wearing what you want to — and inspiring others to do the same.

Remember: excess and glamour are art forms that everyone is capable of embracing.

We buy our clothing from all over the world and all eras of fashion history, and we’re especially committed to finding the story behind each piece in addition to giving you the chance to write one of your own when you wear it.

We also know that sometimes you’re in the money, and sometimes you’re a bit less well-funded than you’d like to be. That’s why Quinby Vintage always attempts to stock clothing that fits every season of your financial ups and downs. We stock everything from big-name, high-end designer finds to no-label frocks that still have that undeniable vintage appeal.

Additionally, Quinby Vintage dedicates a portion of the sale of certain pieces to select non-profits, activists, and causes that we're proud to stand behind. Those pieces will be specifically marked as such and will contain information about the causes these proceeds will benefit.

Size inclusivity is also extremely important to us. It’s not like thicker folks magically didn’t exist throughout history — and trust us when we tell you that they didn’t feel limited to just muumuus, either (though we do love a good one!) Quinby Vintage strives to offer as wide of a range of sizes as we can find, and we’re always looking to give both petite and plus-sized people more options than they may be used to. However, as is the case with vintage, this can sometimes take more time than we'd like it to. Please know that any limitations on sizing are not for a lack of trying on our part.

We also strongly believe that the pieces we sell should be worn with fearlessness and pride by those of any gender. We treat all our vintage clothing and accessories as unisex/androgynous options, but do label them as men/women's clothing in descriptions so shoppers have an understanding of the sort of fit they can expect. 

We invite you to stay for a while, look around, and of course, to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook at @quinbyvintage. You can also subscribe to our newsletter (limited to once a month, plus information about upcoming sales) if you’d like to connect with us on a deeper level.

Instagram in particular is where we list some of our most in-demand pieces, host flash sales, and allow our followers early access to some of our collection. 

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. There’s nothing we love more than hearing from fellow vintage fashion fanatics.

Love,
Katherine
