    Inspiring show! I’m a vintage buyer/ seller/collector who focuses on hats. I appreciate how much work it takes to keep the past alive and relevant.

    Doris I am amazed by your knowledge!

    Hi Doris and team! I love your show! It just started airing in Australia 3 weeks ago and I am addicted. The clothes are so gorgeous and you and your team are so dedicated and have so much fun. It is so pleasing to see nice people doing nice things on television these days. The history of the clothes and the designers is so interesting.

    I, too, found this show by accident and LOVE it! I love the history I’ve learned also. I love it so much that my daughter and I recently went to MFA’s exhibit on costumes/jewelry from the movies of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Doris, you’d have given your eye teeth if they had been available for auction…they were fabulous! (I LOVE watching you pore over pieces for auction!) And I’d have missed it all, if I hadn’t been bitten by the vintage bug, via your show!

    I have been OBSESSED with your show since the first day, that I just happened to stumble upon it, as I was channel surfing. I have even watched reruns of episodes. I have always liked clothes and was able to put things together but it wasn’t until a couple of years back that I was afforded an opportunity to do merchandising for a major retail company that I thought to myself, “Self, this could be your thing. You love to style and merchandise, why not make a career out of it.” So I have been looking into doing just that but, EVERY time I watch your show I realize how much I love clothing and the history behind it. Your show has helped me realize how much I want a career not just in fashion but in the knowledge of the pieces themselves. THANK YOU!! If I am ever blessed to make it out to California I will definitely be stopping by your store. Doris, you and your team are the best. Thank you, again, all of you, for bringing me to tears with your discoveries in fashion history, It confirms everything I want to do with life. Hopefully, I can make all of my dreams come true so that my mom can reap the benefits of my hard work. PLEASE DON’T EVER GO OFF THE AIR!!!! =)

    I just discovered this show a few weeks ago & now I am addicted! I have watched every episode that is on demand & have started recording every new show. I just love seeing all the vintage clothing & hearing some of the back stories on some of the pieces. I am recommending this show to everyone I know who loves vintage pieces. I wished I lived closer too, I am in NY state but they sell items on-line, so that is a plus.

    I just love, love, love this programme!!! I absolutely adore the vintage styles, the shop, the people just everything about the programme. I so wish your store was in New Zealand, even tho I could never afford the clothes, just browsing and adoring the clothes would be a buzz. the vintage look is soooooo stylish and classy….just to die for. I hope we continue to see the show here. I love the styles of the 20s 30s 40s and 50’s just so elegant and love the tailored style. keep on keeping on Ladies……you do an awesome job……:)

    Love, love this show! Same reasons as Barbara’s comment. Just love Doris. She’s such a nice lady and is so good to her “people”. I love her work ethic and share her passion for the beauty of vintage. Admire her knowledge of it. This is one reality show I will be following for sure. Wish I lived closer!
