About Us
I came relatively late to my love of vintage - in my early 30s - but I've always loved to play with clothes, and never wanted to "look like everyone else." In high school I wore my mother's 1960s silk scarves and my grandmother's costume jewelry, but the idea of "vintage" wasn't on my radar.

When I fell for vintage a few years ago, though, I fell hard. At first, I collected for myself - the demands of a full-time job and two toddlers confined my vintage hunt to sites like Etsy. But in 2013, my family moved to Austin, Texas--and once again, I fell hard. With my kids in school, I began exploring my new city while I looked for a new job. On a whim, I went to my first estate sale, and from then on, I was hooked. There were so many wonderful things to find, I couldn't keep them all to myself - and that's how Bat City Vintage was born.

After three years in Austin, we moved back to the Washington, D.C. area, and now I scour Virginia, Maryland, and the District for the best, most interesting pieces of costume jewelry and accessories (mostly for women, but I stock a few men's items, too). I have a particular weakness for Bakelite jewelry!

I love the hunt and I love sending the things I find on to new lives!
