Olive Drab Green │ Vintage OD

My favorite color in the whole world: olive green.

So, naturally, I'm drawn to it like a bug to a zapper.

When I'm shopping for items to fill my store, this color gets me every time and stalks me until I pick it up to buy. Not kidding.

Vintage military, navy, air force, army, and even the forest service. It's kinda nuts. I love it all.


So, here's the thing: If you like this color as much as I do, you're in luck, because I list it in the shop as fast as I can find it. And I also sell it as fast as I list it because I'm not the only one who loves this color.

Are you sensing the madness here? Madness in me and everyone else who loves this color like I do?
If I'm smart enough to sell the item (assuming it doesn't fit me, because when it does it makes it about a thousand times harder to sell), it's your gain. (duh). But, see this picture?

This is me trying on a '50s Korean war era shirt ... and it fit. And I don't HAVE this one, so naturally, I have to hold on to it. But trust me, when I get more, they'll be in the shop!

Check out my shop today. «  And get your olive drab/ olive /fatigue/army green on this fall.

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...

Vintage Cowichan Cardigan Sweater

So, I have this thing for vintage sweaters. That has been established. And I definitely have an affinity for wool sweaters, particularly of the quality variety, i.e. Pendleton, Filson, etc. I was lucky enough (believe me, I was hyper-ventilating when I saw this) to snag this last year at a thrift store. It's hand made, made of wool, no tags. Looks to be from the 1960s. Of the Cowichan style (a native-American tribe, which I believe is Canadian. Their sweaters are what began a movement of quality, thick, warm, amazing sweaters) this thing is THE warmest sweater I have ever owned. This one isn't for sale. But, if you want one just as good, may I recommend you to Filson. Click here ◄ for some gorgeous Cowichan sweaters. Of course, Pendleton ◄ has some great ones too. And for the right price, you have buy them on Etsy ◄. You'll have yours for nearly a life-time or more. Happy New Years Eve and Day, dear readers ...
