ONLINE VINTAGE: VICTORY VINTAGE BOUTIQUE ON EBAY
VINTAGE WHO? Victory Vintage Boutique on Ebay (also Facebook & Twitter!)
VINTAGE WHERE? Victory Vintage headquarters are based in Austin, Arkansas where founder Brande lives with her husband Paul and their two daughters (plus two dogs!).
Brande is a stay-at-home working mom who has made selling vintage a profitable full time career without having to give up blessed time with family and friends in exchange for the hustle and bustle of an in-office job.
VINTAGE WHEN? Victory Vintage Boutique was founded more than 10 years ago as an online vintage boutique on Ebay.
Brande first opened its doors after inheriting a beautiful collection of vintage while living in Oklahoma with her husband Paul. After moving to Arkansas, she continued Victory Vintage upon realizing that her new town had plenty of sources to search, seek & secure the kind of vintage style she’d be proud to list in her online store.
VINTAGE HOW? Brande scours hidden secondhand sources, estate sales and the personal homes of friends, family and contacts to purchase high-quality, high-style vintage finds. Brande loves maxi dresses and vintage gowns in brilliant brights, confidence-building colors and pretty prints. She also has a soft spot in her vintage loving heart for funky hats and bold jewelry, which you’ll find plenty of in her online store!
Brande also re-designs and re-purposes vintage materials & gowns into new pieces! Using leftover vintage materials, Brande crafts “On the Range” themed bib collar necklaces by hand.
Most recently, Brande branched out into an even larger DIY arena by taking vintage wedding & prom dresses and re-designing them into one-of-a-kind creations with help from a seamstress and some dye!
Check out these videos where Brande discusses her before and after process of re-imagining greatness from frumpy ’80s wedding dress to fabulous fashionable frock!
VINTAGE WHY? Victory Vintage’s 4,000+ sales is evidence enough that when it comes to service, this boutique can be trusted to deliver only the best vintage pieces at reasonable prices and quick delivery time.
Like any top notch vintage seller does, Brande has set her standards high so that she can treat each customer with the 110% attention they deserve.
She communicates with vintage customers & enthusiasts through Facebook and Twitter and styles photo shoots to share for style inspiration on the Victory Vintage blog.

VINTAGE MEET & GREET: I recently had the special opportunity to meet Victory Vintage’s founder Brande in the flesh!
Brande visited NYC with her family to take in the holiday sights, sounds and (of course!) city style. I was SO honored to be welcomed into her family during the time we spent together exploring Big Apple destinations like Bergdorf Goodman & Saks 5th Avenue window displays, FAO Schwartz, the Rockefeller Christmas tree, Times Square and more!
I loved seeing the city through the eyes of visitors. It reminded me of why vintage sellers are so important: They are the “eyes” which when hunting for their finds, “see” what we as buyers will appreciate and desire for our own wardrobes. We’re so lucky to have online vintage sellers like Victory Vintage working on our behalf!
Brande, thank you so much for spreading vintage fashion love and being an inspiring example to vintage buyers & sellers alike!
