About the Faraway 

The faraway is a dreamy vintage shop featuring pieces lovingly found & carefully curated. We have new offerings almost every week online and daily at our brick & mortar showroom in Chinatown. We have been sharing vintage since 2013.  



No returns or exchanges are offered, including online local pickup orders. Once you buy, it's yours!  

We post flat measurements on every single listing, we recommend you compare these numbers with a garment of your own to ensure how pieces will fit. Sizes listed on the tag will not be reliable as they are from an era of sizing past.
Each piece is vintage and has lived a whole life before arriving to you, imperfections are the joy of wearing vintage, major flaws will be noted.
