Vintage Wrap Up │ 05/08/15

I do realize that the rest of the world writes the date like this, 08/05/15, but I don't want to confuse my fellow Americans. So 05/08/15 it is.

Lots of fun finds this week. Here's a few of the highlights, plus my best find of the week.



 Who doesn't love a good bow bracelet? From the 1960s no less.
This one is adorable. I probably need to test this one out, you know, a few times
just to make sure it fits right and everything. Ha.



 I'd like to imagine Jackie O wearing this because it's from the late 60s,
maybe early 70s. Such a cute top.
I'm getting really good at the whole "testing" things out.
This one fits great. :)


You all know about Lanz, right? Austrian company,
been around for about a hundred years?
This skirt is from the early 70s.
Gorgeous print, still has the tags ON THE SKIRT.
Never been worn. Of course this fits me
and of course I should be keeping it.
Therefore, I'm selling it.
Tell me how this makes sense?




Okay. This sweater. I'm in love. I'm ready to go boating,
preferably on the East Coast, of the Cape Cod variety.
I LOVE royal blue. Early 70s.
Although, this is Italian made. So, Italian Riviera, please.
Thank you very much!




This sweater. This sweater is the find of the week. I'd say 1940s, but it could be earlier.
I have to show you the details, like the drawstring metal tips and the label.
It is INSANE. So Gorgeous. And it's in the shop.




Thanks for visiting today.
Enjoy your weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms!

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

It's a Cruel Summer

This year has been far from ordinary. With COVID-19 going on strong for nearly six months, and nothing operating "normally" like it use to, now Northern California has wildfires to contend with -- right after emerging from a heat wave from hell. (112 degrees is no joke.) Vintage Wool Sweaters The fires are still a ways away, but that doesn't keep ash from blowing over thirty miles from the ignition spot and into the entire Sacramento region, blocking the sun, inhibiting proper breathing, and giving us even less outdoor time than before. Regardless, such is life. And when it rains (proverbially), by golly, it pours. The good news is I can now get back to thrifting (it was a joyous day about two months ago when we were allowed back in) and back into buying and selling vintage again. Lately, the finds have been awesome. It may be because there was a lack of buying from me for so many months, or because everyone went through their houses from top to bottom, due to the Corona
