Vintage Nautical Baby Outfits

When thinking about baby nautical outfits, I say the only way to go is vintage.  

Last year, I found this beautiful vintage nautical romper for my little guy at a local (Pittsburgh) children’s consignment sale, Sunflower Sprouts.  Consignment sales are a great place to find vintage (and handmade) clothes cheap.  I’ve found the vintage items are often times skipped over by other buyers, which is fine with me!  I think I’ve even found some on the half-price days.  If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, I highly suggest checking out Sunflower Sprouts either this weekend or next (see their website here for full schedule).  It’s by far the best and biggest in the area and I always come home with an entire new wardrobe for my son (of really nice stuff!).

Etsy is another great place to find vintage baby outfits.  Here are some of my favorite vintage nautical outfits on sale now (in no particular order): Continue reading →
