Do you have vintage clothing or accessories you are looking to sell?

Public Dove buys vintage items that fit our aesthetic and quality standards.  Here is what we are looking for:



  • Late nineteenth century through mid-twentieth century
  • 1960s with a classic midcentury style (not mod or go-go)
  • 1970s with an ethereal style (not prairie)



  • All articles of clothing including outerwear, lingerie and swim
  • Accessories such as jewelry and shoes.  Some handbags considered.



  • Fair to excellent.  Some minor flaws such as rust stains or yellowing, darning, or open seams will be considered.


Our favorites:

  • Distinctly Edwardian or Art Deco in style
  • Natural fibers
  • Knitwear
  • 1910s - 1950s


Items that will not be considered:

  • Severely damaged or heavily soiled items
  • Anything newer than 1970s
  • Vintage items coming from a water damaged or mold-inhabited location
  • 100% polyester (blends and synthetic knits will be considered)
