Product Synopsis

Vintage clothing never goes out of style, offering couture quality at a fraction of the price. Now you, too, can follow in the footsteps of Kate Moss, Siena Miller, Angelina Jolie, and other celebrities donning classic designer gowns on the red carpet and boho chic on the street. In "The Little Guide to Vintage Shopping", vintage clothing dealer Melody Fortier demystifies the buying process, telling you just what to look for, what to avoid, and what to expect to pay. With "The Little Guide to Vintage Shopping" tucked in her handbag, the frugal fashionista will be able to confidently select and wear unique and stylish fashions unlike anything in the local mall or overpriced boutiques. The hunt for treasures is on!
