About Us

Thanks for stopping by! Since 2001, 23 Skidoo has brought the best vintage and retro clothing to the greater South Bay area, and we are excited to now be able to share it with our customers all over the globe!

A little background… We started formally working in the vintage fashion industry in 1995. Ever since high school, our owner’s wardrobe had been the topic of conversation. So, after a few not-so-fun “real” jobs, she decided it was time to run her own business. She started collecting more and more vintage goodies until she had enough to open her own little boutique! A great little spot opened up in Downtown Campbell, and we opened our doors in December 1995 as Pandemonium. Two years later, we expanded and joined forces with another local vintage shop, Planet Caravan, to form the coffee shop/record store/venue/vintage clothing mega store in San Jose known as Channel One. What fun we had there! Our live music nights featured bands such as the Faint, Slow Gherkin, Mates of State, Bright Eyes, and more.  However, in 2000, we had to say goodbye to Channel One, and took a year off to relax.

23 Skidoo was born in August of 2001, and we were thrilled to be back home in the heart of Downtown Campbell. We have been going strong ever since!  We take great pride in offering high quality vintage at reasonable prices. Every item is cleaned, inspected, and any damages are noted on our sales tags. You know exactly what you are getting when you shop with us. Our 17 years of experience has gained us work with many photographers, directors, and fashion shows. We live, love, and breathe vintage.

Vintage clothing, however, is becoming harder and harder to find these days.  Not to mention they really don't fit as well as some newer items. Fortunately for us, a few vintage inspired clothing lines started creating exactly what was needed to fill the void. New, more comfortable fabrics are used to make apparel that you could swear is straight out of your mother's (or grandmother's) closet, but fits YOU like a glove. We carry the best selection of these retro styles, with sizes ranging from XS to 4XL.

Thanks again for visiting our online shop, we are excited to do business with you! We are a small store (there’s only 3 of us gals here!), and we work as hard as we can every day to give you the best shopping experience, whether it’s online, or here in person.
