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

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
