About the Faraway 

The faraway is a dreamy vintage shop featuring pieces lovingly found & curated ourselves from all over. We have offerings online and at our brick & mortar showroom in Chinatown, where we put new vintage out every day. We have been sharing vintage since 2013.  


All sales are final. No returns or exchanges are offered but please contact us at if you have a question or concern  

 Please use flat measurements posted to compare with a garment of your own to ensure how pieces will fit. Sizes listed on the vintage garment's tag will not be reliable as they are from an era of sizing long since past.
Each piece is vintage and has lived a whole life before arriving to you, imperfections should be expected, major flaws will be noted.
