About me:

I am a wife, mother, and (retired!) homeschooling parent...

AKA, "Chatty Kathy"...my husband is always telling me that I am the queen of TMI...what can I say? It's true!...

Flea markets and yard sales make me happy...

I recently added jewelry making to my list of passions...It's been all consuming...When I see unusual objects my mind begins to construct pieces of wearable art, which is pretty cool, as long as the object is for the having!!

"There is great potential among tangled metal, life within the rust...few can see it's raw beauty, yet are amazed by what skilled hands bring forth......" SMM…

About Tagged Vintage:

Tagged Vintage is the combination of three other Etsy shops...ShannahMMignini (vintage clothing), UglyBettyVintage (vintage household items) and WiredBeadedBent (handmade creations). About two and a half years ago I chose to close all my Etsy shops so I could focus a bit more on my three growing daughters...

...but now I'm back :) and ready to start selling again.

Why not re-open my other shops?

Well, for starters I figure this time around I should simplify things! ALL vintage items will be sold here at TaggedVintage...and if I get crafty (it's been known to happen) I'll list my handmade items here as well.

Why has TaggedVintage been a shop since April of 2008?

When I first found Etsy (2007) I was just a shopper and so when I signed up I just used my name (not terribly imaginative, I know)...I fell in love with Etsy and found a wonderful world in which to sell my vintage items.

Not really thinking, I just began selling out of the same user name I signed up under...ShannahMMignini...not a great store name!

When the name "Tagged Vintage" came to me a few months later, I opened an account and had every intention of swapping all my items over...problem? I had over 500 active listings and 1000 sales....a little time consuming! So I stuck with ShannahMMignini...

...until now!


About the items in Tagged Vintage:

The major thing that sets the items in my shop apart from most vintage items is this...mine are unworn or unused and almost all still have their original sales hang tags or the packaging in which they were purchased...

The clothing is also primarily one size...medium ( size 10/12)...with some items being smaller (mainly from the 60's)

This is because everything comes from the estate sale of one person. This person enjoys shopping and collecting...and her collection spans 60 years (and counting!) ...



4/1/2013 UPDATE

Because my stock of tagged unused vintage items from the one estate sale is dwindling (thank you Etsy!) I have been hunting in my local thrift, antique and Ma and Pa shops to find exciting vintage items to plump up my shops stock! One benefit of stocking this way will be that sizes will not be so limited...if I find a fab dress in a plus size, I'll buy it to offer here!

I will also continue to search for great vintage housewares, decor and "What the Heck is THAT?" items from times gone by!


...soooo, that's it...more or less :)
