About

Well hello there darlings, welcome to Butch Wax Vintage!

Butch Wax Vintage is an online (Instagram these days!) vintage boutique based in lovely San Diego, California! We aim to please and bring you the best in truly unique and high quality vintage finds for both men and women. We specialize in vintage from the 1940s to the 1980s and aim to sell modern day WEARABLE sizes to fit every lovely body type, from size 2's to 22's!

Established in 2010, Butch Wax Vintage was created by a very unusual, handful of a girl who has been stuck in the past since the age of 13 and has worked in the vintage clothing business for many years. Her primary eras of passion are the 1940s and 1950s, but she even dabbles all the way into the 1980s. We have been featured in Lucky Magazine, and can be seen as the sole clothing line used in fashion editorials in Vogue Italia, Atomic Ranch, Riviera San Diego, Angeleno, Number 3 Mag, and Normal Magazine in Paris. Our pieces have been used in the film / television industry, and can be seen on the highly popular Showtime series, "Masters of Sex" as well as the Australian film starring Kate Winslet, "The Dressmaker."

Quality and satisfaction are absolute key! We take pride in shipping your purchases very fast (usually the same day) and always packaged very nicely with our own personal details and special touches.

You can also find us on Facebook and Etsy! These days Instagram has become the main "hot spot" to buy BWV pieces. Please follow our account under "butchwaxvintage" to get exclusive first sneek peaks at the most dazzling new vintage finds! We are listing items ONLY on Instagram these days!

How to purchase an item on the BWV Instagram:

  • If the item listing starts with "UP FOR GRABS," that item is still available for sale. If the item says "SOLD," it has sold.
  • To see everything that's still for sale, search the hashtag #bwvforsale and make sure to select the "RECENT" search option, not "TOP."
  • If you see an item that you'd like to inquire about, please send me a DM (direct message) through Instagram.
  • If you would like to get that item, I send invoices via Paypal or Square. All invoices should be paid within an hour of being sent.
