Vintage Fashion Bookshops Are Now Open!

We are very excited to announce our own VFG bookshops, on Amazon!

They are full of recommended reading for vintage fashion education. If you've ever thought you needed some vintage fashion books but didn't know where to start, here is your reading list.

With our international users in mind, we've opened similar shops on both USA based amazon.com, and UK based amazon.co.uk.

We've spent time compiling an amazing book list and put them together in one place, where they are still supplied and delivered by Amazon or Amazon sellers. We have titles by our own VFG members, and other books that have been recommended by our trade members and forum users. There are some rare and unusual titles that you might not otherwise hear about. There's even a fiction section with novels featuring vintage fashion for your leisure reading! Special thanks are due to former VFG member Lei (crinolinegirl) for her work in compiling the original booklist that was a starting point for the shops' contents.

To help you browse, there are different 'shelves' such as: Victorian and Edwardian Fashion; 20th Century Fashion; Fabric and Sewing; Hats Shoes and Accessories; Jewelry; Lingerie and many more.

It's not only books - we've also included a selection of useful cleaning products for your vintage wardrobe, and some handy things for sellers.

As well as being an educational resource, the bookshops are a VFG fundraising initiative. The VFG is a member of the Amazon Associates programme, and earns a small commission on all products sold, at no extra cost to you or the authors. Funds raised are used to support the work of the Vintage Fashion Guild, including maintaining and developing our website and its free resources. So by shopping in our bookshops you can support the VFG, as you develop your book collection.

Small print legal announcement as required by Amazon and the FTC! "The Vintage Fashion Guild 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." But we'd already said that above, in plain English.
