My name is Dee, and I am the owner and sole operator of Angel Elegance Vintage. Here, you will be receiving the personal attention of the owner. I care about you and delivering good, quality customer service.
I first started selling antiques and collectibles, with my husband, in 1992. Together, we bought and sold antiques at flea markets, antique malls and antique shows. My first venture into online selling was with eBay in March, 1996. It was not long after that, that I began dreaming of this site. I have also had an online shop at Tias.com. In the summer of 2001, I started operating a vintage clothing and antique store called "Ruby Deluxe" at SE 26th and Clinton Streets here in Portland, Oregon. I was in heaven! There I was surrounded by the things I loved, making a living doing what I loved, and enjoyed talking about all of those lovely things to the customers and people who came in.
I also sew and have ever since I could thread a needle and make something for my dolls. My wedding dress was a gorgeous velvet (I love different textures) with lots of lace and ruffles. I even made a taffeta petticoat for the dress. All were made from a reproduction of a 1906 pattern. Would have loved to have used an original pattern, but just couldn't find one. It was pre-internet days. I hope to be able to help you find what you need for your creations.
I hope you enjoy the items and this site as much as I have in bringing it and them to you!
