Vintage Clothing

Vintage clothing is anything over 20 years old…clothes from the 90’s are considered vintage.

You only have to look around to see that vintage clothing has become incredibly popular in the past decade. Vintage fashion is about “originality, authenticity and quality” and maybe a little nostalgia.

Gypsy Rags goal is to inspire you to be original and not look like everyone else. Vintage clothing allows people to express themselves with unique, unusual and one of a kind pieces…

Upcycling Jewelry

I started making my Bohemian Cuffs a couple of years ago. I search high and low during the summer for unique vintage brooches and well worn leather belts that have outlived their original function. I wish I had invented the concept, but I found the idea on “Pinterest” (one of my favorite places to get inspiration!) and then added my own personal touch. I began selling these little gems in my Etsy shop Gypsy in ME.

I’m now working on making necklaces from unusual vintage items…fishing lures, salt shakers and leather change purses.

So, I bought a Consignment Boutique…

After working here part time for almost six years the opportunity to become the proprietor was a dream come true. I changed the name to Gypsy Rags, painted the interior apricot and filled the space with quirky art and displays. I am a true consignment junkie, collector, thrifter and lover of all things vintage. My days are now spent playing dress up or shopping for the unusual, unique and upcycled items Gypsy Rags specializes in.
