Six Months Out │ Vintage Dresses

Fashion is usually six months ahead of the current season. So, if we're just starting Fall, that's when designers reveal their Spring line. And when Summer starts, that's when Winter wear is introduced.

I think, because we humans find it difficult to stay content with what we have, and are always looking for the next good thing, God created seasons. No. Actually, that's not where I was going with this. While it's true seasons keep things fresh and change is good, we need something to look forward to --something to change the averageness of our day.

And that's where "six months out" comes into play. I can be freezing my tush off but just knowing it'll be bathing suit weather and dress weather alleviates pain from my current weather condition. Truth is, I love our Winters here in nor-cal. They're mild. And warmish. And amazing.

Summers are brutal. And hot. They're unforgiving and eternal. So, I don't wish for bathing suit weather now. At all.

Regardless, fashion speaks to the retailer in me. And looky here. I have dresses. They're coming for you. I replenish my shop with dresses, like this one hitting the rack soon, regularly. All year long. From the 1940s to the
1980s, I have them.

And having said all that, I hope your winter is wonderful. Happy Winter!

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
