Cotton 70s Dress
When it comes to having the best, you've got to go back to the basics.

And I mean basics with every fiber of my being (pun intended). Cotton, linen, wool and silk -- these are what my shop is made of.

They're the most true, authentic and quality of all fabrics.

Wool 1960s Sweater
Of course, I'll randomly put a polyester blouse is because, come on, there were some awesome ones back in the 1970s.

But as a rule (for myself), I try to stay as whole as possible. Year 'round.

So I'm always replenishing denim and cotton, and silk blouses. I've got so much linen, they're falling out of my bins. And wool? One of my favorites of all time.

It's true texture: gritty wool-tufted sweaters, soft cashmere, alpaca wools -- the textures are diverse, their wear-abilty is versatile ... unlike any other fabric.

Visit the shop this summer and spring.
I stock as much cotton and linen as possible. And it's sells just as quickly!

Happy Mother's day this weekend to all the amazing mom's out there, and especially to my mom.

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...

Vintage Cowichan Cardigan Sweater

So, I have this thing for vintage sweaters. That has been established. And I definitely have an affinity for wool sweaters, particularly of the quality variety, i.e. Pendleton, Filson, etc. I was lucky enough (believe me, I was hyper-ventilating when I saw this) to snag this last year at a thrift store. It's hand made, made of wool, no tags. Looks to be from the 1960s. Of the Cowichan style (a native-American tribe, which I believe is Canadian. Their sweaters are what began a movement of quality, thick, warm, amazing sweaters) this thing is THE warmest sweater I have ever owned. This one isn't for sale. But, if you want one just as good, may I recommend you to Filson. Click here ◄ for some gorgeous Cowichan sweaters. Of course, Pendleton ◄ has some great ones too. And for the right price, you have buy them on Etsy ◄. You'll have yours for nearly a life-time or more. Happy New Years Eve and Day, dear readers ...
