Vintage Strong

The quarantine may have set the entire world back a month or three, but I have to thank the vintage community for supporting my small business during these turbulent times.

While new merchandise isn't exactly available (of course, something I am frustrated with), I'm finding ways around it in creative, new ways. I'm going through my own closet (which is filled with vintage) and selling those items I don't wear. I'm going through my bins of vintage and finding items I hadn't even listed yet.

I also have not one but two, friends, donating me their vintage clothing. This is truly remarkable and blows me away. So, the influx of inventory may not be in great amounts but instead in a small, steady trickle ... which I'm so grateful for. 

The tortoise wins the race, after all. I'm gonna go with that.

And if there's isn't anything more "slow living" than have my inventory reduced, for my "slow fashion" business, then obviously I'm learning what I need to learn. I'm in the business of living slow, so if my business has slowed down, then all is as it should be.

As it is though, sales are up. Thank you from the bottom from my heart to all who support me in these difficult times. We will get through it, and meanwhile, I've still got hundreds of vintage items to sell to you! The whole shop is 20% off the entire month of April.

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

Sweet Water Decor │ Hand Crafted Wall Art │ Etsy

You have heard of Etsy, right? They're the online site that hosts thousands of small companies who sell hand made items or vintage items.  I sell on Etsy (vintage) and I know how amazing Etsy and all the shops and stores are. There's a lot of hard work and love that go into running one of these stores. So, imagine my joy when I stumbled upon this little shop called Sweet Water Decor.
