Small Business Saturday │ Perennial Vintage Sale

Hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous! This is what I did in the morning of Thanksgiving. The Run To Feed the Hungry 5k, which is one of the largest 5k runs in the nation. It is an amazing way to raise funds for the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services. I ran it with my oldest son, and it was his first 5k. He did better than me, of course. Though, I did finish 4th for my age group. Not too shabby, I suppose.


Many of you took advantage of my Black Friday sale. So, yay for you all!

Just a friendly reminder that today is Small Business Saturday. This means, PLEASE go to your own local town, city, village or whatever you're in, and shop from your merchants today. It helps your community,creates unity and as a bonus, you meet new people, make new friends and score some great deals. This may be the only time I ask you to shop local rather than shop at my store.

Having said that, once you're finished shopping local (or if you're local to the Sacramento area!) stop by my vintage shop online, Perennial Vintage, and poke around. It's 25% off all day, until 9:00pm pacific time tonight.

Use code BIZ25 at checkout for 25% off everything!

Hope you and your families had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Many people had to work that day, including my husband who is a firefighter. So for those who were with their families, I'm glad you got to be with them. Appreciate them, love them, because not everyone gets to be home that day. And some risk their lives that day and everyday at work.

I am thankful for him, my family and for all of you who support me. Thank you!

Perennial Vintage Turns Ten

Winter Sweaters in the Shop It's hard to believe for me, but on November 30th, 2010 I began my foray into the world of Etsy vintage. A lot has changed since then. And I don't mean just in the world. I mean in Etsy itself. When I opened shop a decade ago, there were so few sellers compared to now, and things sold much faster because there was such little competition. But competition is good. It makes us more creative and promotes grit: both of which are necessary for growth and success. And I have to say, this has been THE MOST creative, fun, rewarding, and exciting work I've ever had. I took a hobby and learned to make a little profit from it on the side. Even though this is a business for me now, selling vintage is still my hobby. While it's nice to monetarily benefit from it, it isn't the only reason I do it. The reason I sell vintage is simple: I love vintage.  I want to preserve it, research it, wear it, love it, talk about it, and naturally, I want to sell  i

Vintage Cardigans │ Fashion Cardigan Love

I seriously have a good "issue" with cardigans. Yes, they're in. But, they've always been in. And this one that I found a few weeks ago is no exception. It's straight from the 1970s, but exactly what's back in today with the almost bell-like wide sleeves, hood, and Aztec/Native American pattern. Hate to say it, but I'm keeping this one. Of course, if I find more (and choose NOT to keep those too, ha!) then I'll sell those. See how great it goes with jeans and boots from today? (both from Target.com by the way). The belt is vintage too! (pic 4) Best part? Cardigan was $4, belt was $2. Ooh la la! Love this outfit...

Have a Vintage Autumn with Fall Fashion

  The best time of the year is here: Autumn. And since I usually stock the shop year-round with sweaters, cardigans, and denim, there is no lack of it now when we all need them. I'm always, always listing sweaters. I find that folks -- also in the states-- are thinking about sweaters even when it's summer... in anticipation of fall and winter.  I sure do this! So because of that, I've got about 75 sweaters and cardigans  and jackets (for men and women) ready to purchase or nearly ready to be listed.  Now, just like I list sweaters in the off-season, I also list short sleeves tops in the fall and winter. It's always good to be ready!  I just found these two beauties. Gorgeous embroidered Oaxacan style blouses. In the shop as soon as possible, and I have more already available. And as for denim, it's always denim season. It doesn't matter the weather, denim is where it's at. I've never sold Wrangler jeans before, but I just picked up a pair for women and I
