Im going to start posting my vintage collections on the blog as I list them in my Etsy shop because I. LOVE. VINTAGE!
I’ve been picking and selling vintage online since before it was cool. Seriously, it’s been a very long time. I have watched empires be built on picking vintage all around me, but for some reason I never really took it very seriously for myself. It was always something fun I did in my free time, my side hustle…my stress reliever.
For the longest times I listened to the opinions of others and kept my ‘normal job’ so I could feel like a respectable member of society but my head was always dreaming up new designs and my heart was trapped somewhere in a small town thrift store.
Now I’m old enough to no longer care what society thinks of me. I thrift when my heart desires, and turn those designs in my brain into tangible items that I can feel in my hands and wrap around my body. I love that I do something that is creative, joyful and good for the planet. I am staying true to my heart and doing so in an ethical way.
The pieces I pick for the shop are the kinds of minimalist items that were just as cool years ago as they are today. They are the pieces that quite simply, I would want for myself. I no longer get caught up on an items age or era, but instead search for quality fabrics and classic designs.
Silk, linen, time softened denim and leather can be found in my shop in abundance. My color palette is fairly neutral… and I love a great boot. Seriously shoes of all kinds are my *ahem* Achilles heel.
If you are in the market for some timeless vintage pieces that are made of lovely natural fabrics, come check it out. I’m currently running an end of summer vintage sale… 10% off any order over $100 with coupon code TAKE10 and 20% off any order over $200 with coupon code TAKE20.
Choosing vintage is the best choice you can make for the environment, it’s also really fun to own pieces that are a bit unique and special. Next time you’re in the market for some new duds, before you hit the mall, try your local thrift store or let someone else do the heavy lifting for you and hit up an online marketplace!
