Should you buy vintage?

By vintage I mean true vintage, not just secondhand. It’s a difficult question to answer but I generally find that items still need to be designer, even if they are vintage. You may have more luck on platforms such as Depop with high street vintage but I don’t think there’s that much money to be made.

With some care, you can do well from vintage Laura Ashley (the real ’80s stuff), and some Benetton styles are sought after too. Outdoor brands like Patagonia, Karrimor etc. can fetch a good price for their vintage items. As always, check sold prices on eBay before buying. I’ll try to write a longer piece on this topic at a later date.

Today I did pretty well and bought the following:

  • Eskandar dress (particularly thrilled with this, a bit of a secondhand holy grail!)
  • Joie jumper
  • OSKA jacket
  • Jaeger coat
  • Vintage Laura Ashley jumper
  • Vintage Macy’s cardigan
  • Zadig & Voltaire top
  • Max Mara skirt
  • Cath Kidston dress
