Enter to win a $50.00 gift certificate from The Best Vintage Clothing


One of the web's biggest draws - its scope and sheer magnitude of offerings - can also, at times, be amongst its greatest shortcomings, too, because it means that sometimes sites that deserve to be household names fail to come across the radar of so many people who would love to get to know them better. Thankfully, due to the very social nature of the web, that can remedied - at least to a degree - by collaborations between two or more sites. Today I'm thrilled to shine the spotlight for a second time on one of the largest and most well stocked vintage clothing sites that you may never have heard of before: The Best Vintage Clothing.

Teaming with, no joke, thousands of different vintage clothing, jewelry, accessories, shoe, handbag, menswear, children's clothing, and assorted collectible offerings, this powerhouse of a yesteryear fashion source has been diligently hard at work filling its shelves with so many offerings, I truly think it would be a challenge for any vintage fan, no matter the era(s) you hold nearest and dearest, not to find at least one - if not a hundred - offerings from The Best Vintage Clothing that you aren't head-over-heels in love with.

Earlier this year I shone the spotlight on Twenty great non-eBay or Etsy vintage sellers, a camp which this vintage clothing behemoth was (and is) a part of, and which I hope, along with last November's previous giveaway post, helped to introduce this awesome site to more of my readers.

If you're just learning about The Best Vintage Clothing or haven't paid them a visit in a while now, you're in luck!!! Their site continues to expand and get better and better - fittingly, one might say given their name - with each passing month. Boasting everything from budget friendly finds well under a $100 (a hugely appealing draw for vintage fashionista's, like me, who always keep a close eye on their purse strings) to high-end designer brands and uxorious fine jewelry, there's something for everyone at The Best Vintage Clothing, including plenty of pieces that fall squarely between the two camps. Plus, they have an engaging blog that focuses on vintage fashion, which is well worth checking out, too.

I could talk about The Best Vintage Clothing's offerings until the cows came home, but seeing really is believing, so it might just be wisest to invite you to pop on over to their vast and wonderful site for a look at the seemingly endless array of great vintage listings their yourself! There you'll discover piece such as the four highlightsed below, and oodles of other great vintage finds that are sure to provide some serious wishlist fodder and shopping spree material alike!




{From top left to bottom right: 1940s nubby orange rayon two-piece skirt and top set, Green fruit salad and blue rhinestone 1950s clip-on earrings, 1940s hand painted wooden novelty hourse brooch, 1950s hot pink and orange cocktail dress and matching hat set}



If you'd like to cross at least one of your newly coveted vintage treasures off your list, you may just be in luck, as I'm pleased as punch to say that The Best Vintage Clothing has very kindly offered one lucky Chronically Vintage reader the chance to win a $50.00 gift certificate which can be used towards the purchase of any item you like for their expansive inventory. Can you say "sweet" or what!!!

Worthy of visiting and shopping from often, The Best Vintage Clothing deserves in my entirely unbiased opinion to be a household name amongst vintage fashion fans the world over (they ship internationally, which is awesome for those like me who are located outside of the US). Few sellers outside of, or even on, Etsy or eBay, have the near department store-like scoop and variety of vintage items for sale that this site does and that alone makes them the kind of resource you'll want to bookmark and visit often.

I sincerely appreciate and want thank The Best Vintage Clothing for teaming up with Chronically Vintage again and for giving one fabulously lucky reader the chance to go on a $50.00 mini shopping spree of their own at what really is one of the best kept secrets on the web!
