Fall is Knocking │ Vintage Fall Fashion

I know. We're smack dab in the middle of summer, and what am I dreaming about?

Fall clothing.

Okay, two things. One,  I like summer. I really do, from 100 degree days to swimming and cold drinks and t-shirts and skirts. Love it.

But, I have a minuscule tolerance for it all. As in, oh, a day of it. Then I'm dreaming of flannel, wool, plaid, long sleeves and denim.

I've been stashing all of said things in a nice pile in my "to list pile for fall," but now I come to point two. Fall fashion --and the previewing and selling of it -- comes in August. As in, August 1st.

So, I just pulled the stash out and I'm going to start listing in two weeks. Problem is I'm totally sidetracked and drooling over the wools, and plaids, and I'm more than ready for apple cider and leaves by the truckload on my front lawn.

For you, I'm showing a small preview of items to come. Look at the buffalo plaid! (I MAY be keeping that one...)

Anyway, try to enjoy the rest of your summer, but I think it's always a swell idea to think about the future. It's smart. Plan for the future always,  as in, "What am I going to wear when the weather turns?" And "Do I have enough plaid in my closet?" or "Do I need a heavier wool shirt along side some lighter wool shirts?" And most importantly of all, "How will I look drinking coffee with these sweaters, denim and boots?"

I know. It's all about priorities.

Also FYI, the whole shop is 15% off until the 23rd of July. Making room for the goods! Go there. ◄ Get the things you need, including Fall fashion. (I caved and just listed a wool Pendleton board shirt and a Pendleton robe.)

Happy Summer, everyone.

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

It's a Cruel Summer

This year has been far from ordinary. With COVID-19 going on strong for nearly six months, and nothing operating "normally" like it use to, now Northern California has wildfires to contend with -- right after emerging from a heat wave from hell. (112 degrees is no joke.) Vintage Wool Sweaters The fires are still a ways away, but that doesn't keep ash from blowing over thirty miles from the ignition spot and into the entire Sacramento region, blocking the sun, inhibiting proper breathing, and giving us even less outdoor time than before. Regardless, such is life. And when it rains (proverbially), by golly, it pours. The good news is I can now get back to thrifting (it was a joyous day about two months ago when we were allowed back in) and back into buying and selling vintage again. Lately, the finds have been awesome. It may be because there was a lack of buying from me for so many months, or because everyone went through their houses from top to bottom, due to the Corona
