Vintage shopping certainly has its pros and cons. You’re guaranteed to find a unique item and you often can invest in designer labels at a fraction of the original price. A lot of people also enjoy the thrill of the hunt and delight in owning a piece of fashion history On the flip side, however, there’s typically only one lone item available, so you either have to magically be the same size or take it in for expensive alterations.
