Our Philosophy

Choosing to buy vintage is a great way to embrace living sustainably, giving back to the planet and also to choose clothes that reflect your personality and make you feel confident and unique.

When you wear vintage clothes you don’t need to look like you’re dressing for a fancy dress party (although if that’s your groove – go for it!). Desert Lily Vintage aims to make vintage clothing accessible to anyone and everyone.

Our philosophy is to source only genuine vintage that is free from marks, tears and of exceptional preloved quality. If we find something that’s been a little too loved but still offers potential, we will upcycle and reinvent these reclaimed vintage items.

Sara’s story

Vintage became a passion for me over ten years ago. What started off as a bit of a personal love for wearing vintage clothing and fashion has grown to an obsession with sourcing and selling vintage clothing for fellow vintage fashion lovers all over the country!

What I love most about vintage clothing is that it allows you to choose clothes that are completely unique to you. I personally find that vintage clothing is more comfortable, higher quality and offers a far more unique style than the clothes of today.

Not only that – wearing vintage is also better for the environment!

Choosing to wear vintage doesn’t have to mean dressing like you’re going to a fancy dress up party (though if that’s your jam, that’s cool too!) – you can select pieces that work for your body shape, style and unique taste.

I hope you enjoy shopping with Desert Lily Vintage as much as I enjoy sourcing these beautiful, timeless and unique vintage pieces for you.

If there’s something you especially would like sourced please feel free to get in touch and if I can find it on my travels I will certainly let you know.

I love hearing from other vintage lovers – feel free to drop me a line and say hello today!
