About modernmatters

Sales 290
On Etsy since 2010

Modern Matters loves finding midcentury marvelous wares for your modern world.

It all started when I had to have that 1940's celluloid handled, intricately beaded bag from the thrift shop. From there I began designing dresses for my paper dolls on leftover paper from my mom's office, taking art and design classes through school, then working in design, wholesale and retail jobs while free-lancing on the side.

Fast-forward through years of collecting and eventually running short on space to contain all those objects of my desire. I could keep collecting, but only if I started sharing with others, which brought me to selling at markets and online: first ebay, then etsy.

So, now I still love buying great vintage pieces, but I also enjoy it when you buy my great vintage pieces. Selfish of me, I know, but it doubles my pleasure when I find another incredible printed Sixties sheath or Forties geo bowtie that I can pass on to a fellow vintage-lover... if I can bear to let it go. BTW, I still have that beaded bag.

    I love travelling and finding unique vintage pieces on my trips. A background in art and design includes graphics at Butterick Patterns, clothing design at NY sportswear co.s and now selling vintage online and across the U.S. How lucky can a gal get?
