A Vintage Summer

70s Prairie Dress
Though summer isn't officially here until tomorrow, I thought I'd get a jump on it (before it gets me with its' heat and often questionably warm nights) and give a sneak peek at a few items coming to the shop.

This amazing prairie dress is one of my newest finds. These are in-demand and rather hard to come by. With a cool long sleeve and just-below-knee length, it can work well on cooler summer nights out and about town, or for early autumn days and night. She's a beauty. Find her right here◄.

I also just found these incredible high-waisted, denim capri pants, circa the very late '60s to early '70s. Made with super comfy cotton (and a bit of stretch) along with those nautical style buttons and waist, they're adorable. Coming soon!

I also have a pair of (high-waisted) military 1969 OG-107 pants.◄ Made for men, but ladies, these are all yours too. I own and wear two pairs. Can't live without them. This pair is made of all cotton, is in excellent condition; they double as loungewear, they're so comfortable.

Along with tops and tees, shorts and skirts, I've got you covered all summer long.  Come take a peek. And right now, I'm having a 15% off for Father's Day weekend.  Get 'em before they're gone!

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 ...
