The Way We Were is a vintage shopping destination in historic Saint Augustine. For more than 30 years, it has been a favorite amongst the true vintage lovers who travel far and wide searching for quality vintage.
But, we are so much more than just a vintage clothing store. Don’t just buy vintage, experience vintage! We encourage private shopping moments, and we love to give our customers the royal vintage shopping experience. Our shop is curated and furnished for the perfect personal shopping experience.
But wait, there’s more! Do you love to play dress-up but don’t need to purchase new frocks right now? That’s ok - book a private dress-up photo session for yourself - or share the fun and bring family or friends. Brides to be - celebrate with your bridesmaids and have a private bachelorette party in a vintage shop! You can play dress-up, watch old movies, have a vintage lingerie fashion show, or a themed party - call us and we can help you with ideas and creative imagination that will be fun and memorable. You name it, if you celebrate special moments with friends and family, why not make memories with vintage fun, fashion and photos. Birthday celebrations, wedding anniversaries, date nights and surprise wedding proposals. Heck, did you want to elope? We can help you with that too, from the wardrobe to the ceremony! Just check out our services page for the various offerings.
A lot of people ask us where we obtain our vintage items from. We hunt for vintage every opportunity we get when we travel. We attend estate sales across the country, and we love getting quality vintage from our clients and personal estates. If you have quality vintage clothing or great pieces of designer vintage (from the 90s - early 2000s), call us to make an appointment or schedule a home visit if you are within 150 miles of Saint Augustine - we are happy to make house calls! Learn more about the types of vintage we buy on our We Buy Vintage page.
