Hello and welcome.
My name is Kim and I’d like to introduce you my business Skimmy. I offer carefully curated vintage fashion items from the 1930’s up to the early 90’s and my handcrafted clothing made with beautiful and sometimes rare vintage fabrics.
I have strong connection to the past and a lifelong interest in old sewing items and vintage and antique fashion. I was drawn as a child to old Hollywood movies, captivated by the costumes and fabrics and the hairstyles. I enjoy giving life to old pieces-fabrics, buttons, braids and buckles and love sharing the story and history that goes with them.
You’ll have the opportunity to buy lovely things from my shop, and I’ll also post on my Facebook page about garment construction and fabrics or feature popular vintage fashion items and their historical reference as I am a bit of a history nerd. Here’s my link https://www.facebook.com/Skimmy-269458889730988.
It’s hard to find vintage in pristine condition and so my promise to you is that I will offer items in the best possible condition, freshly laundered, cleaned, mended and repaired. Any flaws or repairs will be noted in the description.
Items for sale will be described as “Skimmy Handmade”- pieces that I make using vintage fabrics or vintage components. I see these items as new vintage of the future and
“Skimmy Vintage”- these are vintage clothing and accessories from all decades and up to the early 90’s.
Keep watching this space for delectable and wondrous newly made clothing and vintage clothing, shoes, hats, handbags and jewellery.
