ABOUT


Hi, I'm Sally.  That's not my real name (it's Barbara), but my grandfather called me Sally.  He was a businessman and history lover, both of which he passed on to me.

Chronologie Vintage is outgrowth of four years of blogging on style issues and other things that matter to women.  This blog began in 2009 as The Blue Kimono.  We generated a lot of great conversation here on topics ranging from the deep to funny.  Lots of those blog posts are still here in my archives and still get traffic every day.


Over the course of those four years, my interest in eco-friendly fashion led me to open a recycled clothes business called Redress Clothing.  Later, this venture morphed into a vintage clothing shop, Chronologie Vintage. Redress Clothing is closed now, but Chronologie is hopping.   

I studied history, design, and clothing construction in college. I'm also a published business writer and researcher dedicated to learning and sharing best practices for selling online.

Chronologie Vintage is where I bring all those skills and interests together.  This website is a portal to my online shop and a resource for learning how to sell vintage clothing online.* Out of my own research and selling experience, I have a lot to share. I hope you'll join me.

You can reach me at chronologie@earthlink.net. Drop me a line--I'd love to hear from you.

Chronologie Vintage is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

Occasionally I will endorse a book or other product on Amazon that I find to be of outstanding quality--I will never do this for a product I haven't personally used or tested and find to be a good value.

As of this writing, I have only one endorsed product from Amazon: my essential vintage clothes shopping handbook, Melody Fortier's The Little Guide to Vintage Shopping.
