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  it. I want to share the passion I have for it with you.

In honor of my Etsy shop, Perennial Vintage, going ten years strong, this Saturday begins a sale I've never done before. My entire shop (minus two items) will be 40% off for ten days; one day for each year I've been in business.

40% off!! That's a crazy good sale, folks. And I want to say THANK YOU for being so amazing to me; for supporting me, for loving what I sell, for writing fantastic reviews, for having patience with me from typos in the listing, to wrong sizing, to wrong items sent to the wrong people! I've done it all. But, I'm so grateful for all of you.

Saturday the 21st through the 30th of November, the ENTIRE store will be 40% off. It hits Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and every day in between.

I've stocked it with tons of sweaters, denim, wool and more. And I can't wait to see you there.

Thank you. ♥

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
