Vintage Fashion Collection

Vintage fashion brings history to life

A piece of Seattle history is preserved above the Seattle Goodwill store on S Dearborn St.  Feed your curiosity, as you interact with vintage fashions and support Goodwill’s free Job Training and Education programs.

Seattle Goodwill’s Vintage Fashion Collection contains vintage clothing and accessories ranging from the mid-1800s to the 1970s. Founded in the 1960s by a group of volunteers, the collection of over 4,000 pieces is now maintained by Goodwill staff and invaluable volunteers.
