More yelllow than it appeared (ce qui fait mon bonheur).
A Vintage Love Story !
COMMENT TOUT A COMMENCÉ
J’ai toujours acheté beaucoup de vintage pour moi-même. J’aimais me prommener dans les friperies, les ventes de garage et les sous-sols d’églises pour dénicher des morceaux uniques. Je l’ai fait pour moi d’abord, puis éventuellement pour mes proches, et bien rapidement j’ai du me résoudre à le faire à grande échelle, ayant accumulé une quantité surprenante de vêtements ne m’étant pas destinés.
Rien ne pouvait freiner ma quête de vintage, toutes catégories confondues! C’est à ce moment que je me suis dit qu’offrir ma sélection sur Etsy était la meilleure idée pour rentabiliser ma passion.
Au fil des ventes et de l’intérêt croissant pour les morceaux que je sélectionne, j’ai réalisé à quel point c’était agréable de trouver des pièces uniques pour les autres, et les voir les adopter. Et me voilà maintenant, ayant un plaisir fou à partager, échanger et vendre sur Etsy.
Je partage ma passion pour le vintage avec mon collègue Julien qui m’aide à faire de cette aventure un projet en constante évolution.

HOW IT ALL STARTED
I’ve always been someone who buys a lot of vintage clothing. I would browse through thrift shops, garage sales and churches basements… joyfully discovering unique pieces. I did it for myself at first, but then eventually for my friends too.
The amount of clothes that I ended up with became so considerable that I had to start unloading my stock at large. Nothing could stop my quest for quality vintage!
This is when I realized that offering my selection on Etsy would be the best idea to reach more people and make my passion profitable. As the sales and the interest for the pieces became more important, it became clear how great it was to find uniques pieces for others, and see them adopted. So here I am now, having such a good time sharing, exchanging and selling on Etsy. I share my passion for vintage with my associate Julien, who helps make this a constantly evolving project.

Each listing describes the garment in the most possible accurate way. Detailed measurements are the most important infos for you to verify.
