Shopping for Vintage

Details: Shopping for Vintage: The Definitive Guide for Fashion by Funmi Odulate. Published May 2008. Under $14 for a new copy.

Pros: If you want a compact guide to the most significant clothing, jewelry, bag and shoe designers of the past 100 years, this is it.

Richard Merritt's illustrations are beautiful and fun.

Cons: I still couldn't spot some of these designers unless they were clearly marked.

Favorite tidbits: The list of vintage shops wasn't limited to just New York City and Los Angelos. Not only did Odulate include every state, but she also listed great vintage stores for Canada, Europe, Australia and select Asian cities.

This looks like a great guide especially for anyone who feels a little overwhelmed when starting to shop vintage.
