Yes and no: it all depends on the discretion of the owner. Was the clothing made before 1998? Is it in good condition? Is it a rare, unique or simply a well made classic piece? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then please send us a note with a description and ideal sale price. Please understand that in order for the business to profit, we will not purchase items at a premium price. Depending on individual cases, we do accept donations and are sometimes willing to swap. Get in touch, we’re always looking for great pieces!
*We do not consign items! All inventory is property of Full Circle Vintage*
In the main shop you’ll find a curated, high quality, meticulously merchandised collection of clothing, shoes and accessories for men + women. Over COVID19, with several months of pandemic-related closures, we took the extra time to renovate and expanded our space! The back of the shop is “thrift” with clothing + accessories that cost less than $15. Although thrift + vintage are terms often used interchangeably–there’s a slight difference.
—Thrift stores offer used fashion finds from current or previous seasons.
—Vintage shops offer clothing made over 20 years ago and buy it outright or accept donations. [So, as a vintage clothing store, almost all of our inventory was made before 1998 and is owned by the store. It should be noted that there are some die-hard vintage clothing collectors who are reluctant to deem late 90’s fashion as ‘vintage’ as they believe ‘the older, the better’ and it falls on the line of the 20-year mark.]
—Consignments stores offer new and vintage clothing. However, merchants collect pieces with a contract in place to house it for several months or until a sale is made. Profit is spit between the consignee and the shop owner. Policies vary shop to shop.
—Antique shops often sell collectible items that are 100 years or older.
If you’re looking to dress for a theme party, need a theatrical costume, or just an everyday wardrobe staple like jeans please visit us in store or send us a note providing specific details of what exactly you’re looking for including your measurements/size . A visit to the shop is ideal as vintage sizes vary and it’s best to try-on the clothing.
It’s best to visit us with an idea of what you’re looking for and to be open to change. We can mirror the fashion of the era in more ways than one: there are more options for a 20’s themed party beyond a tasseled flapper dress. A visit to the shop includes complimentary styling and assistance in finding the perfect outfit for any occasion.
Anywhere and everywhere! From estate sales to individual sales and sometimes even house-calls, we don’t discriminate as long as the piece is true vintage and in good condition or only needs a simple fix. We are always on the lookout for unique and quality finds.
