I've loved vintage treasures for as long as I can remember. I grew up watching old movies and TV shows with my parents. More than modern day, I still admire the glamour and fashion of the films from the 1930's-1960's era.
After reading the book, Peppermint Twist, written by Joel Selvin, John Johnson Jr., and Dick Cami, I was hooked on this name. The book details the infamous NYC club, The Peppermint Lounge, the infamous dance club in the late 1950's to mid-60's.
Owned by mobsters. Go-Go dancing started here and famous celebrities visited the club regularly. Andy Warhol, Greta Garbo, Jean Simmons and so many other interesting celebrities were patrons..
Also, the TWIST took the dance floors by storm. In 2018, I named my shop Peppermint Twist Vintage as a salute to this great book!
I adore vintage jewelry, hats, shoes, kitsch (yes, I feel like I turned into my mother who left this world in 1995.) I also love vintage and pin-up dresses, and vintage furniture, lamps, decor, etc.
I can spend hours watching old Hollywood films seeing the famous stars adorned in gorgeous items. It makes me forget about all of the bad in the present world. Barbara Stanwyck, Bettie Davis, Joan Crawford, Clark Gable and Spencer Tracey are just a few of my favourites. The jewelry, the hair, the make-up..OH MY!!

If you are reading this and still think that this is a 'fly by night' company, don't fret. I have a 5 star rating on my ETSY shop and the entrepreneurial spirit is running through me like a great ball of fire!
If you buy from peppermint-twist-vintage.com vs. ETSY, you get added extras like special discounts (at checkout), sometimes a lower price and different inventory.
Plus, many times I mail you a free gift with purchase, I run CONTESTS and I started to write a regular BLOG. Etsy is great but I wanted to start off on my own to add more personal features.
Sign up for the newsletter and you will be the first to be informed of the latest inventory. Fear not, your personal information will never be shared!
It is nice to make people feel special when they acquire vintage and unique item vs. something that is is produced new, and sometimes not the best quality.
Remember, when buying vintage items, it is so much better for the environment. We are saving millions of tons of precious metals and fabrics from the landfills sites!
Drop me a note if you feel inclined! I love hearing from people and discussing vintage items, etc.
