So happy with my purchase! Fast shipping, packed very nicely, and the dress is beautiful. Very authentic and unique!
Blame it all on my vintage Afghan coat!
Alas, I am an unintended collector: a magnet for curiosities, a soft-heart for beautiful things (and a magpie for shiny ones!) Over the course of my years of travels and adventures, I have developed the cumbersome compulsion of taking a piece of wherever I was away with me. Vagabonding and pack-ratting have their limitations, and, well…yes, baggage... steamer trunks in a New England barn, wicker baskets in an attic in Kathmandu, metal boxes in an old fort in India.
My Etsy dabble all started with the embroidered sheepskin coat I haggled for in the Istanbul bazaar during a nomadic VW bus journey back in the day ~ how could I possibly part with it? But I finally put my fancy-free foot down and resolved to find good homes for a lifetime collection from voyages, adventures and auctions, just as Etsy made its timely and magical appearance in my life .
And the rest is history, the fun of Etsy's trademark whimsy, the satisfaction of serendipitous match-making and the wonder of extraordinary interactions. The stories and connections unfold and delight: my favourite is the little would-be princess who spent days on line searching for royal garb (fortuitously like the red velvet gown and cape that were folded away in one of my steamer trunks!)
The histories of found treasures also intrigue : the sepia photo stashed behind the mirror of Melle B.B.B.s leather traveling case, the tiny tole box with a little yellowed note in it from Thanksgiving Day 1955...
Timing, connection, serendipity ~ watchwords for a rousing Etsy vintage hunt. Vintage Vagabond Too hopes you'll unearth the treasure you don't even know you need ~ until you see it!
