Vintage clothing is a sustainable practice as an alternative to newly produced clothing as it continues the lifespan of the clothing and keeps it out of the landfill.
There has been some talk of the ethical nature of vintage clothing purchased from thrift stores. The idea is that sellers are purchasing cheap items then hiking up the price to sell what would have been a low priced items for a profit and taking clothes out of the hands of lower income peoples. Obviously unethical. But studies actually show that only 20% of all clothing donated to thrift stores makes it into a new closet. All other items end up in the landfill. There is more then enough clothing in thrift stores to meet the demand of people purchasing for themselves and for sellers to source for their cleintele. That being said, Blue Chair is committed to monitoring this and continuing to ensure that we are as ethical about our practices as possible. Our prices are currently marked to pay for the time of sourcing, the cost of cleaning and shipping and to support the store and it's growth. Please feel free to email or contact on instagram to discuss further.
Blue Chair sells items that are 20 years old or older and specializes in 1990s, 1980s and 1970s. Research is put into each item to ensure that it meets our vintage and size requirements in order to be listed in our store.
Blue Chair is owned by a plus sized woman. Rachel is a size 16/18 and knows what it's like for plus sized people while looking for vintage or thrifted clothing. It is hard! We are committed to making that easier by exclusively offering plus sizes in store. For us that ranges from sizes 12 to the largest sizes we can find. We are still a new store and COVID has definitely slowed our inventory growth. Currently our highest size is a 20 but we are consistently sourcing items to further grow that range. As we grow we hope to one day offer a consistent catalogue with many options for plus size bodies from low plus to infinifats. It is in our set of goals for the store to one day be able to alter clothing to fit larger bodies. If you have questions or specific items you are looking for please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or dm us on instagram @bluechairvintage_
Currently, due to covid-19, all items are from online sources. As such we are unable to vet sizing before we purchase for the store. We do our best
to find items within our approved size ranges but there are some pieces that once they arrive we realize they are not the size or measurements we had expected. We are continuously working to ensure that we are offering good quality fashionable clothing to our customers and that plus size people feel happy and comfortable to shop here.
