Dresses for Successes

I've talked about this before. How vintage dresses are pretty much the best thing that ever existed.
For years, dresses were kind of a "well, it's not the right occasion," type of thing for me. 

Not no more!

All that and some horrid English to tell you that when I find amazing vintage dresses -- which, trust me when I tell you that they're really hard to find -- I'm either selling it to you or keeping it.

Or keeping it and then selling it.



This 60s olive green corduroy dress? Yeah. Just a tad big for me. But, think that's going to stop me from wearing it? Psshh. No way. Once I've loved it some, I may sell it. (Light on the "sell" and heavy on the "may.")

I'm going to switch out this belt -- because it's like the size of Texas-- and wear one of mine, a wide, black leather one along with some oxford flats. Perfect Fall outfit for Cali, and if cooler, add a black turtleneck. I'll have to Instagram that outfit!

And it's vintage new old stock (NOS), never been worn, so I'm pretty partial to wanting to wear it, although that would be the very reason NOT to wear it. But, life's too short for me to give NOS to other people some days. Like today.

Anyway, Fall is in the air. Not literally, but in my head. Kids are back to school, I noticed a crispness in the air this morning during my run: it's close. Closer than it's been since last Fall. 

I'm counting down the days to sweaters and boots. And I have a BAZILLION sweaters in my shop, ready to go!

Come. Visit. Now. Find said sweaters. Here.◄

By the way, I'll be having a 20% off sale September 1st through Labor Day, 5th of September! So, if you're waiting to shop, that will be the time!

Happy future Fall, folks!

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
