If my deep, unbridled passion for vintage and my desire to spread joy and happiness throughout the land had a baby...it would be OopsyGirl Vintage! Oh, wait..it is OopsyGirl! I am a lucky, lucky girl to be doing what I love.

For me, vintage tells a story, sparks nostalgia, and is an amazing way to express myself creatively, in my home, in my wardrobe..and now, in my shop. Its also as green as can be and the most fun way to recycle I can think of! I believe vintage should be fun and playful and I am especially drawn to unique pieces and the just plain kooky pieces that make you say "What?"

I spend copious amounts of time sifting through thrift stores, estate sales, resale shops and the like, searching for amazing vintage finds to pass along to you...okay, I have been known to keep a juicy morsel or two for myself too...but I pass…

And I absolutely love, love, LOVE connecting with my customers and my fellow Etsians. It brings me so much joy to hear from my customers that they love their purchases, or they found just the right thing in my shop. I've had amazing conversations with so many people who were just passing through!

Narrowing-it-down is not really my style. I love all areas and decades of vintage. I LOVE the incredibly varied styles and amazing workmanship of vintage clothing, I adore vintage housewares, I am a wee bit obsessed with vintage textiles, linens, and servingware...oh..and lingerie, definitely vintage lingerie. The moral of this story is that my shop will always be eclectic and have a little bit of everything to choose from.
I hope you have fun playing here and that you find something you truly love!
