Vintage Wrap Up │ 05/15/15

Hey my friends, it's Friday!
This week was rather quiet in the vintaging world.
But that's alright. I found a few quality items.
And almost always, quality is better than quantity.
I'm sure there's an exception or two to this rule, 
like chocolate and coffee, but other than those two,
I believe this rule holds very true.



I cannot keep these Baja hoodies on the shelf!
They're gone in days, if not hours, and they are
the one thing people ask for more of.
This one, oh wow. The royal blue in it.
My favorite color. 
Should be keeping this one (I know, I say this
every week to many items).



 Here's another item that sells out fast. Overall shorts.
They're so back in, super comfy and they go with
everything. I'd sell a pair everyday, if I could
find them just as quickly. And if you're from the 1990s,
like a teen or twenty-something during the 90s, you'd know
that we called them shortalls.
Ha.

So, I found like eight more of these at one place! Embroidered, Asian-inspired
tunics. Gorgeous detail, from the early 80s.
Pick a color, any color. Because, I probably
have that color in my shop!


Woven, fabric, Guatemalan belts.
Colorful, beautiful and these belts accent
any outfit. I love belts, so these naturally
go in my hand the second I see 'em!


Okay, so this shirt. This shirt is the find of the week: a vintage Yves Saint Laurent blouse.
Not only is vintage YSL hard to find (I only come across them maybe twice
a year) but this one is new with tags, NEVER been worn, and the color
is again my favorite color. Had this not been a large, I would
ABSOLUTELY be keeping this for me.
But, it's all yours.

Have a great weekend!

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
