Announcement   Vintage Americana on Etsy
I buy and sell vintage Americana, whether it is brands like Pendleton or Red Wing Boots I buy high quality vintage items made in America. I like the quality and feel and simple designs that have been made for years and last a long time. I do have my favorite Pendleton Gambler Shirt that was made in 1936 and I can still wear it today because that's what quality and tradition are all about. I have sold mostly via eBay for more than 15 years, I do have over 1500 positive feedbacks on eBay, so I like people to be happy with what they purchase from me. I try to buy unique items that appeal to my sense of style and if I don’t like it I won’t sell it.
My fashion sense comes from wanting to be a fashion photographer for many years when I was a just starting out as a photographer, texture, design and stlye is woven into the way I think as an artist. I can remember my grandmother Manka, saying she would never take me shopping for clothes again when I was 13 as I was just too picky with what I wanted to wear. That transitions today into what do I want to sell. My mother was also a weaver and fiber artist in the 1970's which made me more aware and interested in textiles.

After working as a newspaper photojournalist at the Tucson Citizen newspaper many years ago I became more interested in fashion photography and loved shooting the fashion photos for our small town stories. I decided to work on my portfolio and move to New York City after meeting with Art Directors at Vogue and Glamour magazines in 1985. They both told me I should move to a bigger city. I lived in NYC for a year and shot all kinds of great work and looked at a lot of clothes in stores all over the city. I did have a short term Job at Bloomingdales demonstrating Polaroid Spectra cameras at the perfume counter and also shot a fashion layout for USA today in the Perry Ellis showroom with a top model of the day. I was only 22 and probably did not realize all the big magazines already had people they worked with and were not that likely to hire a 22 year old for a fashion shoot. So that is where my interest in fashion began.

I have lived in Tucson forever and spend time looking for unique treasures when I need a break from working on my computer. My etsy name "VITNAGE" comes from mistyping the word vintage over and over when I was listing treasures on ebay and etsy. I kinda like it, its short and easy to remember.

Thanks for looking, Enjoy life today! Tom
