70s Summer │ Vintage Summer

I tend to shop and sell 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s product for the store. Those are my favorite decades. And I suppose I like the 1980s too, but that's a decade all to its' own, and one that deserves its own post.

But every now and then, the 1970s appear and said items collide, coalesce, and all find their way to me in the same week.

True, there are more 1970s product to source than older, because obviously, the '70s were more recent than say, the 1940s.

(I'm also vehemently enforcing this concept because I was born in the 70s and it makes me feel young - albeit, if only briefly). But, it really goes in waves, and this week has a '70s vibe all over it.

I'm a Levi's gal, and these striped beauties are a true flash to the past. And would you check out that big E on the pocket tag? Pretty sweet. (Coming soon, this week!)







The belt here, mushroom and ladybugs included, are incredible. Who wouldn't want a belt like this? Stunning painted leather. With one glance, it says "Brady Bunch"and this is without you having to wear the bell-bottoms and part your hair in the middle. (Coming soon, this week!)

This blouse is in the shop right now. It's semi-sheer, it's embroidered, it has a key hole neck as well as lace down the front and cuffs. Lightweight and perfect for dressing up, for the office, or casual with jeans. So groovy.

Looking for a bit of 1970s in your wardrobe ladies and gents? I've got it!

And also, for Father's Day and for the start of summer now through the 21st of June, the whole shop is 15% off. Visit right here◄ to find just what you're looking for!

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

How to Jazz up your Wardrobe with Vintage Pieces

Do you like wearing vintage clothing? Or are you still trying to figure out if it’s right for you? Short answer: If you like vintage, you should wear it! It doesn’t matter your age, and it doesn’t matter what kinds of vintage you like, vintage is for everyone. Having sold vintage exclusively for over ten years now, vintage clothing and accessories are a huge part of my life. I’ve integrated them into my wardrobe for daily use: whether the entire outfit is true vintage (meaning every piece I’m wearing is legitimately old), or if the whole outfit is new except for the vintage belt I wanted to sport! But I get asked a lot by folks how to add vintage into their wardrobes and I thought I’d write about it. It’s really not a difficult endeavor to accomplish. It comes down to figuring out what you already wear, and switching out the new for the old. Here are a few very simple ways to add that perfect vintage piece into your wardrobe that doesn’t cost a fortune and makes you feel as unique as
