My Favorite Summer Vintage Sales!

July 25th, 2011

vintage sale

Hey vintage lovers! Happy MONDAY!

Saturday night I fell into a rabbit hole of vintage online shopping. You vintage lovers probably know what I mean when I say “rabbit hole.” You type a few search keywords into Etsy, Ebay or Market Publique and before you know it you’ve got pages upon pages of results, a dozen tabs open AND you somehow fell into PayPal within 15 minutes of even beginning to shop!

I found myself spending Saturday night “shopping in” also because with the beginning of August right around the corner, vintage sellers are clearing their summer inventory to make room for fresh fall stock! This means discounted items already in the store, free shipping opportunities and even an extra sale incentive with coupon codes for in-the-know vintage lovers.

The beauty of vintage is that there is an ABUNDANCE of it — and that like your favorite mainstream stores manufacture and market the trends for YOUR tastes, online vintage sellers work to build similar branding and aesthetic so that you can depend on them to provide you with vintage you’ll love.

I curate vintage according to inspirational theme every week in my Shop Finds page. Tonight, the themed collection around “summer road trips” debuts! I can’t take complete credit for it though, because the Sammy Davis Vintage intern Meg Ann is the vintage mastermind behind the stylish finds to be unveiled tonight.

But until tonight’s Shop Finds page goes live, keep reading after the jump for some vintage sale shopping motivation as inspired by my own purchases last Saturday night!

I went a little vintage wild giving happy homes to a few lots of vintage jewelry, a vintage cameo ring and awesome owl necklace from the Etsy shop I Have a Thing For You.

Plus, I share the deets on some serious sales happening RIGHT NOW at four of my favorite vintage shops!
