Thrifty Vintage Kitten is having a HUGE sale. The shop has never been marked down this low! Please help me clear my racks so I can start listing all the 300+ new inventory I just acquired. Everything in the shop is included in this sale. 4 days only! Sale starts at midnight 6/10!
Ooh, boy did I score big time recently! They say when it rains, it pours and this week has been a complete tsunami. It started off with a killer haul of 1940s/1950s little girls’ dresses. Do you see that 1930s blouse down there? Wow.
I’ve been busy washing and pressing them. Hoping to get them listed soon!
Then I got a call to come see a woman’s house with some vintage clothes and this happened…
The women who previously owned these garments had the most impeccable taste! She must have been so stylish in her day. I want to go back in time and shop with her. She took the best care of her clothes and kept EVERYTHING. I walked out with more than 100 garments.
I spent the next day assembling a new clothing rack and going through everything to see what I had. In total I have 173 items. There are dresses, and blouses, and skirts…oh my! My dining room is completely overtaken.
But that’s not all…
Today I went back. And got more.
At one point I opened a closet, uncovered a buried box, and found tons of neatly folded 1940s cotton day dresses! So unreal!
This I call my little box of treasures. Not really sure what’s in here, but I can’t wait to go through everything!
It’s a good thing I have my little assistant to help me. We have LOTS of work ahead of us. Keep your eye on the shop for the most incredible vintage coming. Seriously, guys…my shop has never seen this amount of awesome at one time.
In the meantime, check out what my shop currently has in stock here.
The entire shop is 25% off until Monday evening (5/25)! Had your eye on something, grab it now!
‘Round these parts, Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kickoff to summer. While the weather can be hit or miss, summer bbqs, flip flops, and long days in the sun are on everyone’s mind. In honor of this patriotic holiday, here are some great red, white, and blues in the shop now!

Grab your sunnies and let’s jump in the pool! Summer is here!
I poked my head into a little estate sale today and walked out with some really interesting finds.
Let’s zoom in on those killer shoes.
My absolute favorite thing is when there are little notes that come along with my vintage buys. I love learning the history behind items! This note reads, “Handcrafted shoes sent to Amelia Brown (Maver) from the South Pacific during World War II, circa 1944). How cool is that? They are beautifully made with an incredible pagoda scene carved into the heels. The colors are still vibrant too. From some research I did on these shoes I learned that soldiers often brought these back from the war to give to their sweethearts as souvenirs.
Underneath all the goodies is a really pretty kimono perfect for lounging around in. I can’t wait to get her all cleaned up and listed for the shop.
And, never one to pass on adorable baby clothes, I picked up these pretty little outfits. And the best part…they all came with tags with dates! I want to hug that mom and thank her for taking the guesswork out of dating her items!
Here are the up close images of the baby tags.
So there’s a little taste of my Friday morning! I’ll be getting these in the shop soon! Stay tuned!
Hope you have a great weekend!
Hello! The daffodils are starting to pop up in my yard, so spring is here!
It’s time to fill your wardrobe with soft pinks, purples, and blues. I’ve stocked the shop with a fresh selection of springy pastels just for you!
All images are linked! And as always, if you have any questions feel free to ask me!
It’s April which means prom season is coming! Do you or your daughter like a more unique, vintage look? Thrifty Vintage Kitten has you covered! The shop has lots of great options.

It’s been awhile since I did a ‘recent arrival’ post. So no delay…let’s get to it! I’m still on a vintage baby clothing kick, so I listed a bunch of great baby and girls’ items this week. My favorite is the ’50s grey suspender skirt down below. I think it so perfectly fits into modern times. So cute. And I scored an awesome brown L’Aiglon day dress too. Such a great label.
I’ll be back next week with more fun things to show you! If you see anything you like, just click on the pictures and you’ll be taken directly to the listing…unless it’s sold out already. You never know how fast something might go! Grab it while you can!
Today is a “snow” day for my kids, though it’s not because of snow, it’s because of the cold. It’s currently -4 degrees outside so I’m more than happy to stay inside all day. Brrr! When I was a kid I had ONE day off because of the cold. My daughter has already had…I don’t know…I’ve lost count. Are our winters getting worse or is it my imagination?
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to share some old Chicago winter photographs. I love looking through old photographs, so I thought you might also enjoy this little trip down memory lane back before we had remote start on our cars and women wore skirts no matter the weather!
I hope you’re staying nice and warm in your neck of the woods. And if you’re in the midwest like me…it’s time to break out our space heaters!
