If you're new to our store and to vintage all around, welcome! Glad you are here!
Vintage clothing items in "very good" to "excellent" condition are older than what you buy at your nearby shopping mall. Sizing can run smaller, there can be runs in fabric or slight discoloration on well used areas of the piece. Take some time to figure out your own measurements. We pride ourselves on taking quality photos so you can make a well informed decision.
In the Spirit of Vintage, keep in mind that The Guava Jelly is a vintage closet and that these special items will have a natural amount of wear and tear from surviving all these years. Life is tough. Know that we clean, steam, properly store and carefully ship all pieces with a heavy dose of love.
VTG Brand backstory - the Starter Jacket
Starter was founded in New Haven, Connecticut by David Beckerman to manufacture team uniforms for high school athletic teams. Eventually, Starter made its way into Major League Baseball Teams before exploding in popularity in the 1980s and 1990s. In 2004, Nike acquired Starter and then sold it off to Iconix Brand Group who relaunched the Athletic brand in 2013. Most editions have quilted lining. You can check the product photos to see what you’ll get.
The Guava Jelly backstory - “The Guava Jelly” takes me back to the wild and crazy projects we Waia’u kids took on in hopes of hustling the system and breaking out into financial freedom. Making and selling actual guava jelly was just one of our many serious but seriously funny endeavors. The Guava Jelly closet began on Poshmark and has since expanded to a wide array of shopping platforms making it easier to locate and secure your favorite preloved pieces.
