1) Where do we acquire most of our vintage clothing?
We source most of our vintage through rag houses, thrift stores, antique shops, bins, and wholesalers. Most of our vintage products are mended and cleaned before we list them to our shop. We encourage secondhand and vintage shopping as a chance to give items a new purpose before tossed out or destroyed. We will also be introducing some new handmade products and working with ethical manufacturers in the US to bring you brand pieces soon <3
2) Do you ship internationally?
We do not ship internationally at this time, but we are working on making this available very soon.
3) How do I determine sizing? Will the clothes fit?
In the description section of each item listed, we include detailed measurements of every piece. It is highly recommended that you check your own measurements before purchasing the item to receive the best results. Pick a favorite piece in your own closet and check the fit of it to compare to the item you're thinking of purchasing.
4) What does a vintage item entail?
Because most of our clothes we have are vintage, that means that they are pre-loved. Worn down clothing is expected from very old items and any stains, tears, or rips will be mentioned in the description, we do our best to fix and repair these pre-loved items
5) Why shop with us?
If you haven't been buying Vintage or Second Hand, where have you been? Our Earth is dying and we need to do everything we can to save it. That's why we specifically promote sustainable and ethical practices. By buying vintage from us, you're giving clothing a second chance. We are also a small independent business trying to spread our message and better this planet.
6) Do you contribute to any organizations or good causes?
We have started a project called Beyond the Blue Horizon in which we upcycle and embroider jeans and donate a percentage of the proceeds to RAICES a foundation that we really believe in and support. They help fund immigration lawyers that will in turn help families and children separated from their families at ICE detention centers.
In light of the Black Lives Matter movement, we have also donated 50% of proceeds each month this summer to various organizations like Miami Dream Defenders, FemPowerMia Bail Fund, and Black Lives Matter. For more updates check out out insta page: @angel.cult <3
