Winter Blues

Here in Cali, our Winter blues are pretty mild. We have to go without seeing the sun for three whole days (or hours) in order to acquire this malady.

But, when it does happen, it usually means we have clouds...which generally means we're in the 50s (degrees).

Yeah, mild.

What I'd like to focus on starting this winter in my shop is blues; indigo; denim. More jeans for ladies. More denim for men.

Why? Because I love it. And I know so many others do, too.

This is my seventh year selling on Etsy and I'm still learning. I'm learning what sells but more importantly, what I want to sell.

This is the color palette I'm going for--greens, blues, whites and blacks. These also happen to be colors I wear constantly.

If as a writer we're to write what we know for the most effective prose, then why am I not selling what I like for the most effective sales?

Many times, I buy what sells. But at the end of the day, is it selling? Do I even like selling it? And which do I value more?

This year, it's more of what I like and more of it to you.

Quality over quantity. Always.

Happy new year and if you're looking for more denim, check out my shop! You know what I'll be working on.

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
