Julie Guernsey of 1860-1960 vintage thanks her mother Beth for her devotion to vintage. She began working with her full-time in 1999, and after Beth retired in 2014, Julie continued with her new partner, husband Gary Spiegel. 1860-1960 “has worked with and sold to costume designers, fashion designers, museums and collectors from all over the world.” A career highlight? Julie fondly recalls a stint on PBS’s Antiques Roadshow as a clothing and textiles appraiser.

In a 2006 interview, Spanish Moss founder Suzanne Caravan said one of the upsides of vintage garments is they’ve already withstood the test of time.

Vintage is amazing for so many reasons! It’s one of a kind so you won’t show up to a party wearing the same Topshop dress as your man’s ex for instance. It’s an easy ‘statement piece’ for the trend setter; the confident and fashion forward choose vintage for their one of a kind investment pieces. These garments are of another time and crafted with the care and precision of a bygone era; fabrics were chosen with beauty and durability in mind.
