Vintage Plaid

A good writing rule of thumb is to write about what you know, or in my book, what you love.
I love vintage dresses, so I write about them.
I love vintage plaid, like men's plaid shirts. 
So, here's a little word about them right now.

See this shirt? I was supposed to sell it. But, a men's vintage small plaid usually means it's my size, so naturally it doesn't make it to the shop. It only makes it as far as my closet.

For all you size small men's vintage plaid, I'm profusely sorry. I'm wearing this shirt right this second, I love it, I get tons of compliments on it, and it's mine. (I'm sorry!!)



Then there's my husband. I bring home vintage Pendleton flannels in wool, and the ones that are his size, end up on his side of the closet. Lucky for MANY of you vintage-men's-large-plaid-flannels wearers, my husband is tall...so he needs longer sleeve, so many a times, these older larges just don't fit.



Then there's my pup, Sierra, who likes to be involved when I take pictures. So, here she is. 




But I end up hugging her a thousand times while I'm trying to take the photos, so this is the position I'm in for a large portion of the day. She looks unhappy. I swear she's not.




Or she's doing this. Which is the position she is in the majority of the day.




All this to say, if you're looking for vintage plaid flannel, look no further. I have them. Right here.

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
