Thanks to everyone who voted for their favorite vintage clothing stores! Because of your comments I added lots of new vintage clothing stores to the list.
Unfortunately, this years People's Choice Top 10 was fraught with problems stemming from one vintage store who voted for themselves several hundred times using different people's names and email addresses, but the same IP addresses. I took this store's name off of the list of online vintage stores and have disqualified them from this year's and all subsequent year's voting, and you will never find their merchandise featured on this blog again.
The fact that these people did this makes me sad and angry. I feel that they disrespected me, my blog, my readers, the other vintage stores involved in the contest and all of the people who cast legitimate votes.
I started out the Top 10 by listing what I thought to be the best vintage stores. Taking into account scope and quality of the clothing as well as the quality of how it was displayed. I feel that I have an expert trusted opinion since I have been collecting vintage clothing for 20 years, selling it on and off for 15 years, and have been doing this blog for over 4 years. I began People's Choice because I wanted to know what other vintage lovers considered to be the best online vintage stores, finding it to be a joy to learn about stores and why people loved them.
Due to the events that happened this year I am unsure if I will be continuing the People's Choice vote next year. I spent around 15 hours counting votes and trying to make sure that the results were as accurate as possible.
Thanks again to all of you who cast legitimate votes and turned out to support your favorite online vintage stores.
