Happy New Year - 2020 │ Vintage Fashion

So Springy!
Happy New Year!

This is the start of my tenth year selling vintage, specifically through Etsy. While I've loved vintage and thrifted for roughly the last 30 years, I've been lucky enough to call this hobby my "work." This November will make it ten years of the best, part time hobby ever.

Mickey, I love you.
Spring is on the way! As I write this, though it's January, we're hitting the mid 60s outside, which has me thinking all sorts of Spring things. Look at this color palette I just picked up. It's perfectly spring. And now, all in the shop. The color of the year is Classic Blue, so you can be sure I"ll be loading the store with lots of blue things (besides denim. Hooray!)

I also just picked up this wonderful retro 70s / 80s Mickey ringer tshirt, straight from Disneyland park. It'll be in the shop in a day or two, so snag it before someone else does. The tees are perfect for summer! They go with just about everything from shorts to skirts to jeans to overalls.

And then, not to push too quickly into Spring, I have to remind you that I have a ton of sweaters, cardigans, jackets and coats still available. All right here. ◄There is another couple months of winter yet, and Spring doesn't always guarantee warm days, so I'm not done with sweaters. Besides, they're my favorite item of clothing, so I'll never be done with them.

Visit the shop today and see what's new! Send me a message via Etsy if you're looking for something specific, or to see if I'll be getting more of a particular item in. Always here to help you. Visit my shop, Perennial Vintage, for more.

Happy New Year. To new opportunities, hopes, loves and living, my friends.

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
