Bridal Business

Looking for a vintage wedding dress? Then this is the appointment you should book. Expect to spend up to two hours discussing your wedding dress and accessory needs. Bring your gal pals and let get this party started!

Custom Dress Consultation


Want to wear your family wedding gown but find it doesn't fit your body or your style? Bring it down to the Emporium and have a conversation about your options. I have made 26" waist dresses fit brides with a 38" waist. Let's take advantage of my creative mind and make your special day extra sentimental. The price of this booking covers brainstorming and outlining a plan for what work needs to be done. Sewing services run $50 and hour and a guesstimation of hours needed to complete the work can often be made at the end of this appointment.

This appointment booking is also appropriate for ladies desiring to have a dress custom made to fit their body. The least complicated of custom made dresses require at least 10 hours of work to manufacture and fit.

Simple Bridal Alterations


Does your wedding dress just need to be hemmed, have the straps raised or other simple alterations? Then come for a fitting for up to one hour and we will get you all pinned up and ready to go. Bridal alterations run $50 and hour and a guesstimation may be made during this appointment.

Trip to fabric store


For brides (and others) who desire a custom made dress and are unfamiliar with the process of finding a pattern and suitable fabric. We meet at an arranged fabric store, view and select a pattern, find appropriate fabric and all the notions necessary. There's nothing worse than wasting money on a pattern that's the wrong size or fabric of the wrong width or length when these items cannot be returned. Allow me to help you make your best decisions so you can end up with a garment you love.

Sell Us Your Heirloom Vintage

Do you have vintage clothing, jewelry or accessories to sell? We're always looking for vintage furs in good condition and wedding gowns from before 1980. Vintage swimsuits, jewelry, shoes and hats are also on our constant radar. I take joy in carrying on the stories of the original owners of the vintage I sell and am most excited when it is your mother or grandmother's things. Listening to stories and seeing photos of the woman who wore it first are one of the excitements of buying and selling vintage. Have more than you can haul? Book a house call visit for us to come to you!

House Call Buying


Sometimes there is a whole house of things that need to be dispersed in a timely manner. I began cleaning out estates in 1998 and know a variety of other people who specialize in different types of vintage and antiques. We will truck out to your location, give a bid on what we would buy and recommend other dealers for you to contact to get the best price for what you have to sell. Please specify location and any other specifics to your situation or needs.

Valuing Vintage Women's Wear


Do you have heirloom vintage you would like to know more about, but don't want to sell? Bring us what you have and we will tell you all we know including current retail value, approximate insurance value, and what you could expect to get selling it yourself. I particularly excel at the history of vintage costume jewelry and am happy to help sort fine jewelry from costume and dime store jewelry from high end designer pieces.
