Practicing with my new (vintage) sewing machine. I made this simple throw pillow from napkins I found on clearance.

Love to shop for vintage items, but can't keep them all!!!

I have been thinking about how to sell vintage stuff for some time. I would love to open a resale shop, but that isn't possible. This platform gives me the best of both worlds, I can shop for quality vintage items that need to be saved from an uncertain fate, and I can display them for people who see the same value of the items...

I had the hardest time coming up with a name. I finally settled on Mimis because this is what my youngest granddaughter would call me and it stuck!!

I look for vintage items everywhere, mostly on the weekends, but I have been known to take a day off of work to shop!!
owner, Everything!!
I am a collector!! I love the hunt. I love finding that unique item. If I could, I would spend all my time hunting for vintage treasures.
I am so glad Etsy exists, this way I can hunt for awesome vintage items, and not become the crazy hoarder lady
