ABOUT THE OWNER:
Hey there! I'm Caroline, owner of FDFV. :)
I discovered vintage and realized it was a complete world of its own when I was around 7 or 8 years old. I was obsessed with 'The Sound of Music' and making and creating things of all kinds.
Fast forward to the 7th grade: I took a Home Economics class in middle school devoted exclusively to sewing -- knowledge that I've carried with me and used to this day :)(Insert years of experimenting with clothing and fashion here, while also discovering late 70s and early 80s punk rock and graduating from high school in Texas).
I then worked at a brick-and-mortar vintage shop for over 6 years in my early 20s and always daydreamed about opening my own shop one day. Present day: I have my own real life, big girl store in Atlanta, GA and also sell some of my favorite items here on Etsy :) I try to hone my inventory to the 1920s-1960s, but I also pick up cute & interesting pieces from later (and sometimes earlier) decades as well! Hoping to add more men's items in the future, too.
I also design and make embroidered felt patches, which I sew entirely by hand, that I also sell in the shop. They are inspired by vintage Sailor Jerry & Bert Grimm tattoo flash. Check em out! :)
I love fashion and fashion history and am always learning new things about clothing trends, construction, pattern making and of course, care, cleaning & maintenance.
Shoot me a message if you have any questions or just want to talk fashion! :)
