Whole Lotta Love │ February, Seasons of Transitions

February is a tough month, mentally.

I'm not talking relationships here, I'm talking about clothing.

Sweaters versus lightweight spring items, to be specific.

It's like this: We're still in the middle of Winter, sweater weather, yet I know Spring is coming. And I need to stock up on other things, things other than wool and sweaters and jackets, for the shop.

This means a huge majority (i.e. ALL) of my jackets and sweaters are on sale right now and will be for almost the entire month. Like this dreamy olive green cardigan.This is so I can make room for new inventory.

The problem is, I love wool and thick sweaters, and  blankets  so it's tough to know we're leaving this season for shorts, lightweight shirts, t-shirts and dresses.

And yet .... I LOVE this too!

So, let's be obvious here: it's really the best time to be shopping my store. All the amazing sweaters and outerwear are  on sale -- things you can still wear for at least a few more months or more -- and you can also start shopping for pending Spring!

It's a win win, y'all, even for me, because I can clear out the old and bring in the new.

Check out the Winter Sale Section right here. ◄

Meanwhile, would you look at this lovely '40s dress? It's in the shop, ready to wear.

And don't even get me started on all the linens and silks I'm getting in.

Happy Wintering, everyone!

Vintage Blankets │ Vintage Warmth

Military Throw
Selling what you love tends to make for very happy shop sellers.

And like anyone who strives for happiness, and as a shop owner, I want this happiness.

It makes any and all work ... not work at all.

Take blankets, for example. I love blankets. I hoard them like a nut-hoarding squirrel.

And yet, I really have no room for any more which means I hunt for vintage blankets for you.

Just found this gorgeous olive green military blanket, and I often come across these.  So naturally, I list them as frequently as possible.

I also love the baja blankets, the horse blanket, Mexican style ones.

They come in gorgeous pastels as well as more primary colors, and everything in between.

I sell tons of them and try to list them as often as possible.

Mexican Throw
These blankets are great as a throw over a chair, sofa, or even a bed. And they double as a great stadium or picnic blanket!

A blanket can instantly liven up a neutral room, making it homey, warm and comfortable. Not to mention, each vintage blanket is one of a kind with its own history and patina.

You can't buy that kind of love in new throws!

Head on in and check out the blankets I currently have. ◄ I get new ones in (and out of) the shop year round, so things are always changing. And they sell fast. From wool to cotton, I try to find all sorts.

Happy New Year and stay warm this January!
