I first fell in love with vintage in the tenth grade, when my poor put-upon father dragged me down to the local Salvation Army store so that I could get my very own 'boyfriend blazer', and hopefully quit stealing his. I think he was tired of having the sleeves wrinkled from being rolled up, and of finding stray candy wrappers, lipsticks, and tampons in his pockets.

Now I scour Denver and the surrounding area for unique vintage goodies that I can share with the world. I find it really gratifying when someone else, maybe even someone on the other side of the world, recognizes the same greatness I did in a quirky jacket, a dainty pair of shoes, or some well loved old boots. I've also been a bit of a tree hugger for about as long as I've been a vintage lover, so being in the business of 'fashion recycling' is something I feel proud of.

When I'm not shopping, taking photos, or writing listings, I enjoy practicing Chen style Tai Chi and having tea parties with my six year old daughter. But usually not at the same time.

I also have a blog at http://sadiebessvintage.blogspot.com/
