Just a few weeks ago, Portland was blessed with a new vintage store, Simply Vintage Boutique. The gal slinging out the vintage? Some of you may already know her! She’s Sarah of the Etsy shop Stutterin’ Mama!
Sarah’s shop is a vintage lover’s dream come true. Lush and elegant vintage garments hang from plush satin hangers on buttery yellow walls and nearly every piece in her shop could be the prized dress in any retrophile’s closet. Sarah has carefully hand selected each and every item in her shop. There are many beautiful dresses as well as a wonderful range of separates. Another thing that is wonderful about Sarah’s inventory? A lot of really wearable sizes. People often complain about vintage being tiny, but at Simply Vintage, that’s not the case. I found plenty of gorgeous items that were too large for me, which, while a bummer on my part, I knew some other gals were going to be thrilled because finding “plus size” vintage is always a little tougher.
Sarah also stocks menswear too! So there’s something for your man as well. Simply Vintage is strictly for the hard-core vintage lover or even collector – Sarah has some stellar, very high-end items. Lovers of the 1940s and 1950s will be in pure heaven here, because true vintage is all she stocks. Her inventory extends only into the 1960s, which is like a giant sigh of relief. It does get tiresome to go to a “vintage” shop, only to have to sift through rack of 80s.
