Quirk Originals & Custom Fashion

Unique Resale From 1940-Now

How many fashion items can you say are truly one-of-a-kind? And we’re not just talking about a rare print or a limited edition piece. We’re talking about an item that is made-to-order, and designed specifically for you. That’s what you’ll find with Quirk’s originals.

We believe that fashion should be fun, quirky, and it should make you feel good. That’s why we offer a range of sizes that can be mixed & matched. And because we want to be as sustainable as possible, we only produce what we need. 

So if you’re looking for something unique, whether it’s one of our rare true vintage pieces (from the 1940s-Y2k), or a pair of exquisite bike shorts, then come see us. We’d love to help you find your perfect fashion match!


We aim to be the go-to destination for all things vintage, stylish, unique, and fun.

Our Pledge to Authenticity: More Than Just Words

While many claim a commitment to authenticity, for us, it is the bedrock of our business. Our carefully curated selection of vintage clothing and accessories goes beyond aesthetics; it is a testament to an era and an ethical responsibility. Recent legal battles involving counterfeit goods faced by our industry peers have made the contrast all the more evident – and our determination, stronger.

We firmly believe that selling fakes not only deceives consumers but also disrupts the integrity of the supply chain. Illegitimate trade creates a ripple effect that damages the entire industry, undermining the hard work and history woven into each piece. Our stance is clear: we only collaborate with trusted suppliers, valuing the origins and journey of every garment and bag that graces our shelves.
