About BleuBird Vintage
BleuBird Vintage is a shop that exists both on eBay and in an online shop – and the best part? They offer different merchandise on eBay than they do on their website, which is great for us vintage lovers! The eBay shop only recently reopened and is only open indefinitely. However, the eBay shop will be updated weekly with over 40 new items each week, so that means lots of new stuff to drool over and bid on!
Why I Love Them
- All items start at $9.99, which is very reasonable considering how high bidding can get on eBay! However, you can usually get a super high quality vintage dress for a great price if you bid at just the right time. For those who hate bidding, there is a Buy It Now option with very reasonable prices – the Hawaiian Print dress, for example, is only $48!
- The item descriptions are fabulous: lots of pictures of a model, as well as exact measurements and approximated modern-day sizes. Also great: they list the size & height of the model and whether or not they clipped the item on the model.
- Great customer service; never hesitate to shoot them an e-mail if you have questions about the sizing or condition of an item. They’ll get right back to you ASAP.
- Almost all of BleuBird’s items are in fabulous condition and the shop takes great care in making sure each item is up to par.
- There is a blog to accompany both BleuBird shops – updated regularly and always exciting, you get an inside glimpse at running an online vintage shop. I love being able to see the people behind the shops – you know you’re giving your hard-earned dollars to someone who is really passionate about fashion! Also on the blog, you’ll know the minute that the website shop or eBay shop is updated, which gives you an edge on buying and bidding.
- Great selection – seriously, they have a ton of items! I love all of them, but even for the pickiest shoppers, there is something for just about everyone.
