Vintage Boutique items come from the world over; all items are carefully chosen by Karmaloop's vintage experts, with pieces coming from all over the world. Some items come from huge cities like New York, Los Angeles and London, while many of the pieces come from private sellers in unlikely locales (How many other vintage sellers get pieces from Michigan?). The really cool thing about Karmaloop's Vintage Boutique is that the online store has extremely limited quantities of each garment. In many cases items at Vintage Boutique are one-of-a-kind, so you can go out knowing you are sporting a completely unique piece that you will not see anywhere else.
Vintage Boutique has an extremely eclectic collection of garments. Many of the garments are fresh from the 1990s, which works well with the resurgence of the Seattle grunge look, but a lot of the pieces on Vintage Boutique's website have a great 1940s Old Hollywood look to them, or a vibrant 1980s New York flair. Vintage Boutique is a great take on vintage because you don't need to sift through the loads of junk at thrift stores -- these pieces are individually selected treasures from private collections and forgotten locales. Some pieces may show slight signs of use, but Vintage Boutique items are always in great condition and always capable of freshening up your look.
Implications - Vintage Boutique is a new type of online shopping experience in that items are of a very limited quantity or one-of-a-kind. This type of online shop is geared towards individuals who want beautiful and unique garments, not mass-produced basics.
