About

I am one of the lucky ones; I turned something I love into my livelihood

I am Elle, the owner, curator, collector and occasionally model of Tigerlily Frocks. Apparently, the love of thrift skips generations. While my grandparents both were avid thrift store patrons, my mother would rather die than have to go inside one. At the age of 12, a friend's mom took me to my first thrift store. A life long love of finding truly unique things began, and since then my need to dig for treasures has been ever present. If I can't be at a thrift store or estate sale, I find myself digging through the clearance sections of normal stores and Targets.
Like my depression-era grandmother before me, I love efficiency and hate waste. She would use a bar of soap until it turned into a tiny sliver. Then, she would put the sliver in a cup filled with other slivers until she could roll those slivers into a ball and then use that ball of soap until it too was a tiny sliver again. I have a quirky personality that has always admired kitsch, but my appreciation of vintage continually grew as I bought clothes that got holes in them after literally one wash (*cough* Old Navy *cough*). Fueled by a frustration with our culture's disposable mentality and clothing made to last mere months, I began collecting quite the wardrobe of vintage items that had beautiful details, were expertly tailored and built to last.
My love of vintage turned profitable while I was in college. I began selling unwanted items on Ebay and soon started browsing for my favorite thing to shop for; vintage. I soon found that Ebay was like being at the biggest thrift store in the world! Back then, Ebay was seriously the place to find rare treasures, and I soon found selling to be just as fun as buying. I stopped selling to pursue a master's degree, which had been something I had aspired to do since I was a child. (In other words, I have always been and will be a geek). Ironically, my masters degree at Cambridge had left me with a strong distaste for the arrogance of academia. I returned to the United States and began selling full time and wholeheartedly; after all, now I had racked up 40K in student loans!
I have been selling vintage for 9 years and have been on Etsy three years now and love the culture of this online marketplace tremendously more than Ebay, which has now become some sort of Amazon.com knockoff where you can buy cheap junk from China. I have three young daughters (the oldest is almost 6 and the youngest 4 months). I adore dressing up my girls in kiddie vintage. And I have found that not only are hand embroidered Mexican dresses gorgeous, they are the best for being pregnant during Texas summers! I can't possibly wear all the beautiful things that I find in my hunts, and it has become a real joy to pass so many gorgeous pieces of clothing on to loving new homes. I can honestly say that my little business enriches and deepens my life, and I am grateful for it!
