Spring in the Shop │ Perennial Spring

Ah, Spring. Just got back from Seattle. Their Spring is the rainiest one I've ever experienced. Probably doesn't help that it was an abnormal, record-breaking rainy weekend, either.

But, it was beautiful. Stayed downtown, did Seattle-y things, like Starbucks and the Space Needle and coffee and Filson and Bainbridge Island, and more coffee.

Now, I'm back at home and feeling refreshed, I'm ready to stock the shop with what you want. This Spring, it means more denim.

I know. I can't seem to stock enough of it. From Levi's 501s, to Levi's 550s, or overalls or denim shirts, it's what you want. And lucky for me, I live and breathe denim. It's not work to supply you with what you want. Even denim that isn't a traditional color. Like these ones.


I must say, I was blessed to find this gorgeous Hudson blanket. I am keeping this one, but I have a duplicate that will be coming to the shop. Yes, we're headed into Spring and Summer. But, I like to think ahead. WAY ahead.

And these blankets are worth thinking ahead for.

Happy Spring, everyone. And a 'lil side note ... I'll be hitting 5000 sales very soon. As soon as that happens, the shop will be on sale for 4 days with a 20% off as a huge thank you for all your support. So, stay tuned! It'll literally be any day now.

UPDATE: Sale happening NOW!!

Love you all!

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
