This blog is my place to share my love of all things vintage. I’m Beth, the Boss Lady at Hempton’s Retro Threads, in Austin, TX. I was definitely born in the wrong decade. I’ve been know to spend hours at a time looking at vintage fashion pics and sewing patterns on Pinterest. Vintage eye candy, cookies, cute animals, & roller skating make my world go ’round.

If you love vintage-inspired clothing, cute accessories, and just generally looking & feeling fabulous, you should be shopping at my boutique! Hemptons Retro Threads offers flattering clothing for women of all sizes, because who doesn’t want to look great with minimal effort?

I personally do all of the buying for the shop, and I seek out well-made items. We’re talking meticulous attention to fit details, quality fabrics and construction techniques that are made to last. Our items are classics that are tried & true and not going out of style! I love supporting other small businesses with my purchases for the shop, and buy from local makers as often as I can. Our handmade retro jewelry comes from artists in Austin and San Antonio. I also feel that responsible buying means buying American-made garments whenever possible. Currently, 14 of the 25 clothing brands that we carry are designed and manufactured in the USA, and I’m striving to increase that number.
