THE SHOP IS OPEN!

Hi! I am so happy to announce that the Friendly Fox Vintage shop is now open again! I am stocking it all day today and tomorrow! Click through for a preview of only SOME of what will be listed today and tomorrow, and a special discount code! New items will be posted on twitter as soon as they are up! I'm starting off with easy-to-wear day dresses and skirts, then moving on to more fancy things :)

  1. It was really fun to wait for you to open the shop and wonder if the clothing would actually be sold for affordable prices or if the prices would be hiked up (as "vintage" clothing prices so frequently are). Congratulations, you did not disappoint- astronomical prices that are probably nowhere close to what you paid! A job well done!

    1. You're right! The pieces are also no where near the condition I found them in. ;)

  2. I understand that it IS frustrating not being able to afford everything you want. Like, new technology, for instance. I really wish I could afford a new computer or some of the photo editing software I actually need. But, things cost their price for a reason, and whether it's just a demand for it (which can hike the value of an item, regardless of its original cost), or the work that goes into it- that price is valid. If the price wasn't valid, there wouldn't be a market for it. Our culture's sense of entitlement for high quality items at a cheap price is an oxymoron. And it's why software piracy and other sad socially accepted behaviors are so prevalent. Expecting to get good vintage at a Forever21 price is equally sad.

    Unless you have properly sold vintage before- and I'm talking GOOD vintage, not the 80s crap you find at the thrift store- you don't realize how much work goes into it. The hunt for the item, the cleaning and repairing of the item, the preparing for presentation (steaming, ironing), the cost of photography equipment, background setup, sometimes lighting equipment, the computer and photo editing software, the internet connection, the time (loooots of time) it takes to set up, photograph, and prepare images for the online shop, the actual listing of the item (including measurements and proper descriptions), the marketing of the items- maintaining a blog and online presence, and the time involved with packaging and shipping. It's really quite exhausting, and I can't believe so many people stick with it for a long time. So yes- there is a value you are paying for, besides the demand for beautiful vintage, which isn't so readily available- hence why some of us are willing to pay the price.
