Fops and Dandies Review
I love Hemlock Vintage’s website because it’s very clean and easy to navigate, and also, not only do they have an excellent selection of real vintage pieces, but they look carefully and thoughtfully chosen by someone who loves clothes, and not just an estate sale raid. Reading the biography of the woman who runs the site only confirms this…

I just received the vintage shoes I bought from you. They are exactly what I expected, very nice. There was a handwritten note included, with a “thank you”. I say the same, thank you very much.

Hemlock Vintage was GREAT! They braved terrible weather and trudged through the snowpocalypse of 2010 to get my boots to me in a hurry. Once I’d received them (in PERFECT condition, as advertised!) the great customer service continued as they answered all of my nit-picky care questions in a gracious and timely manner.

Hi Julia,

The Ceil Chapman and ruffle dress arrived very safely indeed on Saturday August 7. To my great delight they both fit beautifully and I think I will have to go and learn to tango to do the ruffles justice. Thank you for your care in packing and shipping. Both were uncreased and I could have worn straight away. I look forward to being tempted by more of the beautiful dresses on your site. Put me down as a loyal customer already. Kind regards, Karen [Australia]

50s111108lITEM #CT086 Lilli Ann Eyelash Wool Coat with Velvet Stripes
Yesterday I received my Lilli Ann Eyelash Wool Coat and I just had to write to tell you how magnificent it is!!!! It looks like it was barely worn. A couple of friends were over when I took it out of the box and they quickly wrote down the name of your site. I am a problem child in that I have a full bust, but a relatively small waist and hips. The coat was perfect in that I can wear a sweater or blazer underneath and still not feel like I was choking. Thank you again and have a terrific holiday. Angela

My order arrived yesterday and I am just delighted with both the care with which the items were sent — everything, including the discounted 1930’s dress, has been beautifully prepared — and the quality of these dresses, so lovely and unusual in their details. Thank you so much for taking care of this varied order for me with such patience: your items are some of the few vintage outfits which actually do fit as described, no minor feat in view of the wide variations of sizing in clothing even today and, of course, most particularly with items whose manufacture extends over a broad range of decades.
Sincerely, Valdy

The gold lace dress and jacket set arrived Wednesday: the outfit has a lovely sheen and is so gracefully designed. Thank you very much for including the special instructions: for a dress of this vintage, the material remains remarkably intact, particularly for such extremely fragile lace. I appreciate your great care in sending this — the dress is in superb condition and is just beautiful! Fairfax, Virginia

I purchased the 60s dress, velvet with rhinestones late last week, and the package arrived today. I wanted to let you know how much I love this dress. It’s great, and even my husband, who generally doesn’t understand the “vintage thing” I have going on, likes this one. Might be the length!! Anyway, thanks. Oh, and thanks for the fast fast shipping.

Hi Julia,
I have the dress and I’m very pleased! No problems with the fit…the skirt part is a little clingy (as my boyfriend puts it, “shows off your curves”), but still very comfortable to wear. I’d say it’s almost a perfect fit. This dress is so beautiful and I’m very happy that I have it.

Hemlock Vintage:
I just wanted to say that I absolutely love getting emails from you about new updates. You said you didn’t want to bombard customers with constant emails, but I will be a customer who definitely doesn’t mind. When I get emails about new updates, I go to your site immediately to check it out! And I recently purchased a pair of 1930s shoes from your website and wore them to-day; they were an absolute smash! Everyone loved them and asked about them. Thank you Hemlock Vintage! Your site is swell!

I have never seen a more amazing and interesting web site anywhere. I love it! This was my first visit, as I was researching the look for the 30’s and 40’s I came across your site. I don’t quite understand all that you do, but I am sure with many visits here I will! lol I really enjoyed looking back at a lot of the styles of the times. I can’t believe that there is really somewhere to come and not only visit and browse, but to purchase. Oh, I will be back again and again. Thank you for sharing and I wish you lots of luck and hope you stay on the web for a very long time. I haven’t enjoyed myself this much in a long time. I just love those crepe outfits you have, I always loved crepe! It’s like going back in time. Thought I’d never see these styles again.
Thank you! God bless and much happiness.
Keep up the good work

Hi Julia,
Just a quick note to thank you for everything. The dress arrived in plenty of time for Xmas, and my son’s girlfriend Julia (I swear!) was SO SURPRISED! Since we had told her that the dress was already gone, she was not expecting it and the look on her face was priceless. Ray is grateful that fate tipped his hat.

Thanks again and hope your holidays were as great as ours! Cheryl

Thank you very much for the beautiful vintage pieces. They arrived in perfect shape – loved your packaging and the fit on the deco dress was perfect!!

Sometimes internet shopping can be very tricky-especially vintage clothing, so I am thrilled things turned out well.

Keep me posted on great pieces – I love Trigere, Fath, Schiaparelli, Dior, Givenchy and most things 50’s.

Thank you very much, Stacey Lefton Glick



The shoes arrived today! They fit perfectly – thank you very much.

Thank you so much for packaging this order up as carefully as you did. These shoes are gorgeous and I cannot wait to give them to my wife on Thursday (her birthday). You run a very classy outfit and I’m glad to have stumbled onto you on the Web.

I’ll be back,

Bill Adams
