Cicely's Closet

Hampton Falls, New Hampshire

It all began with a coat..... I can still remember walking down the sidewalk on the East Side in Providence, Rhode Island, some 30-plus years ago, seeing that dress form on the sidewalk in front of a church thrift store, adorned with a fabulous 50's swing coat, blowing ever so slightly in the breeze. It was ink black cashmere, beautiful big buttons, fully lined, and beyond stunning! I had to have it, and that was it, my journey with vintage clothing began. Today I have a husband and 4 children, a small photography business, and my vintage clothing love and business. I have been selling online for over 12 years, (before that, in group antique shops) and am really excited to be on Thrilling! I work from my home, and my office is filled with rolling racks of clothing, and the shelves are filled with treasures to be listed. My camera is always close by waiting to capture that perfect moment. People often ask me where my shop name came from. I named my business in the mid-90s when I was a dealer in a number of local group antique shops, selling vintage clothing and textiles. I was (ok, I still am) a huge fan of the TV show Northern Exposure, and my shop name is a nod to the show's fictional location of Cicely, Alaska. Thank you for visiting, I hope you find something you'll love here!
