A River of Warmth │ Unity Alley Boutique │ American Made Blankets

Have you ever come across clothing, or home goods, or accessories (or even people) that are above and beyond what you expected? And after marveling at their awesomeness, you quip the obvious and inevitable question, "Where have you been all my life?" and then "Why haven't I known about you?"

Yeah, well this just happened to me with these gorgeous blankets and throws, by Unity Alley. I'm literally in awe at their beauty. And that they're made right here in the USA is the icing on the cake. Plus, these throws are made of organic and/or  recycled cotton-acrylic yarns.Absolutely gorgeous texture and feel. Very soft, very quality-made, very unique.

The size is perfect, too. Great as a throw for the sofa or chair, and works equally well for a twin, double and even a queen bed. It's on our bed right now and matches perfectly. This pattern is called Two Twirls.

Honestly, I want more of these blankets. I can't get over the American made quality behind it. I support local, I support small business (partly because I'm both, and yes, Unity Alley is on Etsy as well) and I especially support USA made products. You guys, these blankets make great gifts (for yourself!) and you can have them custom made as well with your own logos, designs or brands. Plus, there are baby and kid sizes. (They thought of everyone, here).

Visit their website right now ► Unity Alley. I guarantee you will want one of each and then some.

Along with the blanket, the morning was gorgeous too...

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
