Moccasin Love │ Native American Shoes

Minnetonka
I'm pretty sure I've talked before about how things come in waves, you know, waves of same things.

For example, in life we have seasons. Seasons of change: seasons of gains and seasons of losses. It's a natural part of life, it's to be expected, and it's what keeps us on our toes and (hopefully) changing for the better.

Mukluks
This same facet holds true in vintage fashion and finding it. Just recently, I came across two pair of Minnetonka calf/knee high moccasins for ladies. I'll go years without thrifting these. *Yes, I can go online and purchase them, but that's not the point.* A bit before that, I came across these amazing moccasin/mukluk shoes. So gorgeous. Not my size, so I'm selling. But, they're phenomenal and may be Midwest plains or even Canadian. Not sure. And before that, I found some incredible buffalo skin moccasins.

I love moccasins. I wear them a lot. They're comfy like a slipper, yet I can wear them out and feel great. But, what in the world? These are hard to find, yet I found them within a few week period. And not to jinx myself, I may go months or years without finding this many at once, so why the four pair all at once?

Is this a part of  the "thinking positive" philosophy? Or "begetting what we think"? Or "like begetting like?" Perhaps. I'm a huge believer of that philosophy. Huge. But, it's not as if I'm not thinking about acquiring moccasins throughout the year. I do. Constantly! I'm always looking for them.

Wearing all my faves: plaid, denim, moccs ♥
So, what happens that they manifest all at once? What is it that brings them together at the same time, just for me, and then not again for a while?

This, I don't know. But, I do wish I could figure it out. I like dwelling on or wanting something good and getting it! Don't you?

Anyway, I've got amazing moccasins in the shop◄ right now. And if words become things, then Im going to say out loud "I will find more moccasins," and by golly, I'm going to find them!

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
