Opened in 1999, Hemlock Vintage is an online vintage clothing boutique offering a curated high-quality selection of vintage clothing and accessories. Every piece on the site is hand-selected based on condition, quality and style. I am a stickler for perfection and give a detailed condition report so that you know exactly what you are receiving. I inspect every piece of clothing inside and out, and clean and repair the clothing.
I have been collecting vintage clothing since I was a kid, my dad taking me to thrift stores and estate sales, helping foster a sense of design and style. I started Hemlock Vintage at the tail end of college, an architecture major minoring in history. Preparing to move to Minneapolis after graduation, I had to downsize, which included selling my vintage clothing – my auctions did better than anyone else’s. Cynical about architecture, I taught myself web design on the side and, long story short, after a couple months I built a vintage clothing web shop and it took off. I had one of the first vintage shops on the internet and it quickly stood out as being curated and trustworthy.
Over the past couple years I have been selling vintage in person at markets and fairs, taking a break from online. Please contact me if you are in the Baltimore area and would like to stop by the studio to shop (Hampden right off 83).
And please feel free to make offers, especially long time customers.
