Nobody’s Baby specializes in vintage clothing, accessories, and random-collectible-fun-things.
We also rent costumes – which cover a wide range of characters, history, people, and animals (rabbits, gorillas, etc).
Nobody’s Baby is primarily a vintage clothing store, located in the university district of the lovely town of Eugene, Oregon. We have been around under various names since the mid 1980s and in the 90s started operating under our current name. Nobody’s Baby was a 1930s vaudeville song that has since been recorded by a variety of artists. Owner, Linda Collins, likes to say that the clothes she sells are currently Nobody’s Baby until you take ownership of each lovely piece, at which point, of course, the piece becomes your baby.
In the 1980s Linda purchased the contents of a costume rental business and found that she loved this aspect of clothing as well. We find that marrying the two businesses works rather well. There is, however, a bit of a quandary when deciding whether a new purchase is to live its life as a vintage or costume piece. Inside of Nobody’s Baby, customers will find a costume rental area with an amazing number of costumes and accessories tightly fit in to a small space. We do year round costume rentals for teens and adults, sorry no children’s costumes.
Linda started collecting vintage clothing in the mid 1970s and has been passionate about this endeavor ever since. The sense of history and the better quality of vintage clothing are but two of the reasons Linda remains in love with vintage clothes. She also has a definite “rescuer” mentality and wants to make sure these lovely items don’t just disappear into a rag barrel or landfill.
We maintain a small area designated as designer label clothing and try to carry at least some “costume” pieces for sale year round for events such as the Oregon Country Fair, Burning Man, Faerieworld, and Talk Like a Pirate Day, to name a few. At Nobody’s Baby in Eugene, we are known for our customer service and would like to extend an invitation to experience our excellent service.
If you are in our area for any of our famous events such as world famous track events, a UO athletic event, the Oregon Bach Festival, Faerieworld, etc., please drop in an see us at 365 E. 13ft Ave. in Eugene, the home of the University of Oregon. We reside in a lovely green valley and yes, we must put up with a lot of rain to stay this green but we also have a very colorful Fall and great non-humid summers. Skiing and other winter activities are close by and the Pacific Ocean is an hour away also. While here please also enjoy some of our many excellent wineries and craft breweries. We are open Mondays through Saturdays 1 1 am to 6 pm and Sundays 12 to 4 pm.
