About

I've been an artist all my life and freed myself from a stifled bohemian spirit. I've collected and worn vintage clothing since the mid 70's and now I'm a vintage clothing dealer. I hand pick what's to be sold and I only sell what I would wear myself. I encourage self expression in my daughter and promote it here in my store. I was a freelance textile designer for 23 years so pattern, color, and style are very important to me. I love what I do and I take pride in what I sell. Been selling vintage on the internet since 2001.

My love is eyewear. Vintage frames. I have tons of them yet not enough time in the day to photograph, measure, and market them in my shops.

I've sold at many vintage clothing shows here in Manhattan over the last decade.
Done with schlepping. I only sell online. Ebay and www.RetroFocusEyewear.com are my…

I've sold at many vintage clothing shows here in Manhattan over the last decade.
Done with schlepping. I only sell online. Ebay and www.RetroFocusEyewear.com are my internet stores where I offer new, cool reading glasses and eyeglass frames, and Etsy.com where I sell my vintage eyeglass frames and all things old and beautiful. I only buy what I like, which is a reflection of my style and who I am.

My inventory is as eclectic as I am with my own.
I'm a cowgirl in a plain tank, worn jeans, and vintage cowboy boots.
I'm a goth gal who loves anything black, vintage lace-ups (shoes, jewelry and clothing), corsets, fitted lace victorian garments, over and under....
I'm a punk chick who loves tatoos, piercings, vintage leather, and alternative music.
I'm a hippie when I wear my cut off shorts sewn onto a vintage maxi-skirt, worn with a thick leather 60's belt and barefoot on the beach....
I'm young at heart and will wear a mini skirt with high heels and a cropped leather bolero jacket.
I'm a housewife with my hair unbrushed up in a ponytail, with a loose hoodie, yoga pants, and fuzzy slippers.
I dress as my mood suits me, not as others want me to be.

What's listed in my Etsy shop is only a fraction of what I have in store so if there's something specific you're looking for, ask me. I may have it.

Something special about artists, and creative people, that sets us apart from the others. I see it here, that everyone is like a big family~ everyone is looking out for eachother. I see it in the photography, the content, and the general aura this site emits. Thank you all, for what this has become.
