I retired two years ago with plans to earn some extra income freelance writing. (Still working on that one). I have two nieces who have shops on Etsy, and after listening to their adventures in vintage hunting and some nudging from George (my partner in all things) ~ we agreed to give it a try...we were both instantly hooked. He loves shopping at yard sales, thrift shops and estate sales as much as I do.
We like to look for unusual items, hard to find items and especially mystery items. It's exciting to find something that we've never seen before and the challenge to research an item and learn something new. We've picked up so much inventory, that we decided to open another shop for books, boxes, art and ephemera. So now, we're twice as challenged ~ at our age, it's always a good thing to keep these minds working.
We have eight grandchildren who help us 'curate' our inventory, and they have fun taking turns modeling the jewelry and accessories. They also appreciate the opportunity to earn a little bit of spending money. Right now we're having fun with it, and as long as we're having fun, we'll keep doing this. And, with social security and pensions the way they are these days, we appreciate the opportunity to earn a bit of spending money, too.
We hope you enjoy the interesting and sometimes unusual vintage items we add to our shop. We invite you to check in often, there's alway something new to see. And, if it isn't listed, check with us and we might have it or will be happy to look for that special item.
