    Why Fashion Crack?

    It is all about passion and addiction. I am a lifelong Addict of Vintage, beginning far back in the 1950s when as a child I played dress up in 1920s - 1940s cast off gowns and costumes. As I began to read, my favorite stories were always historical in context - I loved to imagine how people lived and dressed - a cultural passion to discover more about life in days gone by. As a teen in the 60s and 70s, I started my vintage clothing collection and surrounded myself with bits and bobs of everything old. I am a sentimental fool. I wear vintage clothing every day. I deeply hold a respect for sense of place, historic preservation, adaptive re-use, and the sharing of creative imagination.

    Currently I am a middle age student of history, with a focus on architectural history and its preservation, and yes, there is that dreaded School Loan looming..... Always a good problem, the loan has compelled me to begin selling online again after a few years of absence. Until then I had been selling online without pause since 1995.

    Online selling has changed a lot in the past twenty years, and I am adjusting slowly. The greatest change to date has been the advent and progress created by ETSY. It used to be that one could hang a dress on a hanger in a window and it seldom failed to sell. The advance in professionalism, particularly in the area of photography expectations, does at times boggle me, as like every seller I'd love to present each piece in the best manner possible. Please bear with me as I attempt to pick up the skills required to do this. In the meantime, expect longer listing text as I still follow the original selling advice learned in the early years to "describe each item as if there are no photos.” My future goal is to attempt to provide photos as if there is no text.

    With my passionate addiction to vintage, one may well understand that I have amassed a tremendous collection over a half century - and I have, especially of vintage clothing. Please stay tuned as another goal that I must succeed in is to release my private collections to the public through ETSY, and there are some serious 'vintage gems’ coming your way. It is time to move on to my next adventure in life, and there is far too much to travel with me.

    I am a gregarious creature who enjoys sharing, getting to know my buyers, and Loves to haggle on prices. Looking forward to meeting and working with you -
