Hello! I'm looking to get a small amount of vintage lace. Any suggestions on where to look?

 

Thanks in advance!

I would try Etsy if you're looking online. Or, Goodwill (or the like). Here in our city we have a Goodwill Outlet where stuff is pilled by weight - it's a great option for finding cheap stuff to repurpose. You may also just look at the fabric store - the trim section sometimes has some really cute, vintage looking lace.  Good luck!

Here is a search on Etsy - Lace, Vintage, Supplies. There's lots here in a variety of prices & styles:

But look at the fabric store first because lots of the stuff listed there as "vintage" is stuff still available in stores. Not as green as buying new but I imagine it will be quite a bit cheaper. Just depends on what you need and what your priorities are, yk?

Thank you! I'm definitely looking for repurposing items that others might be ready to get rid of, so these ideas are very helpful.
