Vintage Wrap Up │ 05/01/15

There's something about this week that has been utter chaos.There's like there's 10,000 things to do, and I can do not-a-one of them right.

I can tell you that vintage, selling vintage, being surrounded by vintage is always right. So, there's that.

I love it. Love the clothes. And it brings me happiness. Gives me something else to do so I don't go crazy. Writer's are crazy. You do know that, right? Yeah. We work alone, we think to ourselves, dialogue runs in our heads all the time, scenarios contrive themselves out of literal situations. It's really sad.

And yet, there is no other thing out there that makes me feel alive and happy the way writing does.

Wait, except for vintage. But clearly, we've established that. And you know this.

Anyway, here's some of the things I listed this week at my Etsy shop, and in it is my best find of the week, as well.

Enjoy. Happy May 1st!




Okay. So I found THREE of these beauties. Embroidered, Asian-inspired Tunics. 
Naturally, I bought all three. And want to keep them all.




 I'm a sucker for Native 'Merican jewelery. No, I'm not a sucker. I'm a oh-my-gosh, I-need-it-all
turquoise-lover. Including men's things. This is a tie pin. 
It's gorgeous.




Okay. This is the best find of the week. Not surprisingly, it's a dress. And it's Hawaiian.
Do you realize this is a shift style (very Pulitzer) Hawaiian dress?
That's like a combo of two of my favorites.
Why am I SELLING this?
I think I've come to the conclusion that I need to make vintage Hawaiian dresses.
With vintage fabric, if I could find it.
I would make them, wear them. It would make me happy.
And I would do this with ALL of the spare time I have.
Which is none.
(Not sure WHY my legs look so much darker in this pic than the rest of me. Lighting issues, clearly).




 I love cloisonne. I love peacocks. Yes, they're annoying and loud. The peacocks, not the earrings.  
But, I grew up with them roaming our backyard because of the neighboring mansion/estate 
had them in their yard.
Peacocks are cool. And beautiful.
And these are marked and signed Samuel Huang earrings are cool
and beautiful, too.



I mentioned in my listing for this that I wouldn't be a California vintage seller if I didn't sell these
Baja hoodies. Aren't they swell? I want to go to the beach, at sunset, start a fire, roast marshmallows,
and watch surfers surf away, as day fades into night.
