Morning Glorious Vintage, a Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Emporium
I'm Jen, I've been wearing vintage since I was 14. Back then, my closet was full of my mother's 1940's dresses! 15 years ago I started Morning Glorious to share my vintage clothing and jewelry finds. We've been on Etsy since 2008. With my husband Vince, we opened a second shop for our menswear collection, MisterBibs. We ran a 'brick and mortar' store which was chosen as one of the "Top Ten Best Small Vintage Shops" in the country by "USA Today" magazine! We've been featured in Vogue and Elle, and are proud to be long time members of the Vintage Fashion Guild. We have provided garments for TV series, Hollywood films, and regional theater productions.
We live in an 1850s Vermont farmhouse. Our work happens in a studio on our property that holds our offices, warehouse, photography area and a vintage showroom with all our online merchandise. We're so fortunate that here in New England we find incredible treasures tucked away in closets and attics, just waiting to be rediscovered. We have 1000s of pieces in inventory so if you're seeking something in particular, let us know, we may have what you are looking for. When selecting merchandise, I select beautiful, visually striking, well made garments, and it's all about color, pattern, texture, print and proportion. We love the remarkable details in things made in the past and we hope you enjoy our finds, too!

Our items are TRUE vintage, meaning they are at least 20 years or considerably older, they have been worn before, and may have minor flaws such as pulled threads, tiny spots or holes, etc. We have over 16 years of experience in the vintage clothing business and we do our best to note any flaws in the item description.
Colors may look different on different monitors or mobile devices. Please feel free to ask us questions or request more details, or photos, before purchasing.
We provide garment measurements according to standard tailoring methods, so please know your own body measurements -- and remember, a garment needs to be bigger than you are, so that you can move and breathe in it. For example, if your waist is 28 inches, a cotton (non stretch) dress should measure 30 inches in the waist, so you can bend, turn, sit, and are comfy wearing it! Usually vintage sizes on the original clothing labels are not comparable to modern sizes. Waists, shoulders and arm holes may be proportionately smaller than in modern clothing, and vintage shoe widths often run narrow. Feel free to ask us questions in advance, or request extra measurements, to be sure of a good fit. A great way to know, is to compare the measurements in the listing with a garment, or pair of shoes, etc., that you already own and that fits you well.
WE HAVE ONLY ONE OF EACH ITEM! We estimate the size to the best of our ability, but please always go by the garment measurements provided.
We describe any flaws we see in the Item Details section, and generally rate garment condition from 1) Poor/Distressed/Fair, 2) Good, 3) Very Good, 4) Excellent.
Most POOR to FAIR items will only be offered if they are being sold as a study piece, cutter, or fashion design example.
DISTRESSED means very worn, but still desirable as a fashion statement (ripped, torn, faded, but in a good way!)
GOOD condition means the piece is wearable but may have issues such as prior repairs, a missing button, or light stains that will be identified in the listing.
VERY GOOD means there may be some overall signs of prior wear, but it is still very presentable.
EXCELLENT condition means it's really great, it looks pristine, we don't find any flaws at all.
DEADSTOCK or NOS (New Old Stock) means the item was never worn or still retains original maker's sales tags. Deadstock items may still have flaws that occurred to the item while in storage.
Vintage clothing, by its nature, often has little imperfections or signs of wear which are not considered major flaws. Jewelry may show some tarnish or patina. Shoes may have light scuffs or have wear on the soles. Our items have a rich history and may be 25, 50 or even 100 years old. They are REAL vintage, and they are wearable and have character, but they are NOT the same as BRAND NEW or reproduction items.
