Will Travel for Fashion

As a fashion lover and professor of fashion history, it’s no surprise that I have a passion for vintage.   It’s a logical progression that since my working hours are dedicated   to looking at art, fashion, and interiors from past eras that my enthusiasm for history often spills over into my free time.   I’m an avid eBay shopper.   American Pickers is my favorite show.   Digging through flea markets and thrift stores is my idea of a modern-day treasure hunt.   So recently, when I came across The Vintage Traveler, I was delighted to find someone as interested in vintage as I am!

Creator Lizzie Bramlett is a former teacher and long-time collector   of vintage clothing.     Her blog chronically the quest for life, liberty, and the pursuit of vintage.   Lizzie takes us on her trips across the country to find the most amazing pieces.   Think of it like American Pickers for fashion historians.

In addition to seeing Lizzie’s drool-worthy finds, The Vintage Traveler shares obscure fashion history facts.   Expect to see vintage photographs, reviews of fashion books and films, hints for identifying and collecting historic fashion, and a bi-weekly round-up of fashion history news from around the internet.
