Hello! My name is Simone - I've loved vintage since I was a little girl, when I used to collect antique oddities and turn of the century postcards. While studying costume design in college, my love for fashion history and vintage clothing were revived. Once my closet started overflowing with vintage pieces that either did not fit me or were not my style, I decided to open Caramel Vintage on Etsy.
Since then, I've spent countless hours searching for vintage in dusty corners and chilly flea markets, and I love it! I adore finding unique pieces that are able to fit into a modern wardrobe, while also having their own history of owners and wearers. Vintage details and fabric are unbeatable, and I love the idea of wearing a piece of history!
Caramel Vintage carries clothing from the turn of the century through the 1990s, but my favorite eras are the 1910s-1940s and I tend to stock more of those. I have a particular fondness for 1930s-40s rayon crepe dresses, 1930s lingerie, Edwardian pastels and florals, and 1930s-40s swimwear and rompers. If you are ever looking for something specific, please do not hesitate to contact me! I hope Caramel Vintage can put something sweet in your wardrobe.
Also! If you live in Southern California and have Victorian - 1970s vintage to sell, I am always buying - whether it is one piece or an entire estate. Please contact me for more info.
