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

How to Jazz up your Wardrobe with Vintage Pieces

Do you like wearing vintage clothing? Or are you still trying to figure out if it’s right for you? Short answer: If you like vintage, you should wear it! It doesn’t matter your age, and it doesn’t matter what kinds of vintage you like, vintage is for everyone. Having sold vintage exclusively for over ten years now, vintage clothing and accessories are a huge part of my life. I’ve integrated them into my wardrobe for daily use: whether the entire outfit is true vintage (meaning every piece I’m wearing is legitimately old), or if the whole outfit is new except for the vintage belt I wanted to sport! But I get asked a lot by folks how to add vintage into their wardrobes and I thought I’d write about it. It’s really not a difficult endeavor to accomplish. It comes down to figuring out what you already wear, and switching out the new for the old. Here are a few very simple ways to add that perfect vintage piece into your wardrobe that doesn’t cost a fortune and makes you feel as unique as
