I also love the thrill of the hunt -- forget the mall, give me a good thrift shop any day!
Because there's just so much any one person can use, I will also be featuring vintage treasures from my thrifting expeditions.

I'm available for special orders/requests -- feel free to contact me, and thanks for visiting my shop!

Coming soon: Check out our new shop, MHADLEYvintage! I will be sharing some of my amazing vintage finds with all of you! Check us out at etsy.com/shop/MHADLEYvintage
