Vintage Fashions Online

From costume to themed parties, fashion shows or styles just reappearing after a couple decades, vintage fashion seems to always make a comeback. Many people collect vintage fashions and Goodwill Akron even has its own collection, which is partially displayed at its signature Fall Fundraiser, Taste of Vintage.

Some of these vintage items have sold very well on as well. Here are a few standout pieces for both men and women vintage items.

Although furs aren’t worn as much as they were 30-60 years ago, they continue to sell well online. Some pieces are purchased to be added to private collections.












Some dresses are classic and never go out of style. Others are a little more dated, but still attract a specific type of buyer.
