The freedom of conducting business online allows us to consistently be able to update our inventory and bring you the finest and most comprehensive vintage store. We have thousands of one-of-a-kind Vintage Clothing, Housewares, Mid-Century Modern Furniture, Lighting and other items from the 1920's through 1970's. We enjoy offering the flexibility of enabling our customers to shop at any hour of the day, so when you get the urge to find that perfect penguin ice bucket, you can!
Having our items online also allows you to see a selection of what we have in the store for when you come shopping. We are happy to place items on hold and have them ready for you when you stop in.
We are always searching and adding items to Vintage Swank. We personally hand select every item for the site to ensure the finest quality and selection of any vintage store. We update the selection at least once a week with, in most cases, 50 or so new items. Our inventory is so diverse it's hard not for us to have something new. Remember, just because you do not see it on the site does not mean we do not have it. Since we can only get through so many items at once we always have a backlog of items on the racks. Just drop us a note if you have a request for anything specific, or not specific.
Since our items are very unique, when you add an item to your bag it is hidden from other shoppers until you checkout. This is to avoid the possibility of two people trying to purchase the same item. If you do not successfully checkout, the item will return to the site after one hour, or if you decide you no longer want the item you can remove it from your bag by going to the "My Stuff" icon. The "My Stuff" icon allows you to see all the items you are adding to your bag before your checkout.
Of course you can! Just click on the picture of the item you wish to see in any of the categories or searches and you will be taken to a larger view. You can go back to your search or the category you were in by clicking the "Back" button at the bottom left of the expanded listing.
Ordering from Vintage Swank is just a few simple clicks away. There are two ways you can order your favorite items. Under each item you will notice two buttons with descriptions. The first is the "Add to My Bag" button. This button will allow you to add the item to your shopping bag and continue shopping for more great items. Once you add items you can view them by clicking the "My Stuff" icon at the top of each page. You may also remove items from this area. Once you have filled your shopping bag to the top you will want to click the "Checkout" icon. This will take you to the Login page where you can "Create an Account" or "Order Without an Account." Select your option and then proceed with the order form.
The second way to order is even more simple. The second button under the item is "Buy it Now." By clicking on this button you will be taken to the Login page where you can "Create an Account" or "Order Without an Account." Select your option and then proceed with the order form.
