Why buy vintage?

> Because it reduces waste, it keeps reusable, quality items out of landfills and reduces the demand for sweat shop produced goods.
> Because it gives you access to one of a kind items that no one else owns or can own. All vintage items are rare and some are one of a kind so if you see something you love be sure to snap it up fast. You are unique, your clothes should be a true reflection of that. Be a true original in vintage.
> Because it is better quality. Ever heard the term fast fashion? This is what modern retail has become and what vintage is not.
> Because buying vintage supports small businesses like this one. It helps feed my kids and my many pets rather than feeding caviar and champagne to the ceo of a corporation.

About

Finding balance

I have always gravitated to thrift shops and estate sales where I can give the treasures I find a new lease on life. I'm also an art student, hair stylist, and hopeful clothing designer. I love the creative process and am just not cut out for a job where I have to sit at a desk and wear a pant suit every day. Thank you Etsy, for giving me a creative outlet that is a passion and a job.

In my spare moments I go for long walks with my sons and dog. I love to write and compose music, I play a bit of guitar and drums and hope to start a band one day. Most days I chase my crazy sons around while juggling the hunting, photographing, mending, listing, designing and shipping process solo.

At the moment life is busy, so I have to steal bits of time here and there for myself while I put my family and my shop on the fore -front. Life is a balancing act.

"I have a problem with perfection. I don't think perfection is very artful. So the object is not to stop or arrive anywhere, its just to make this thing as beautiful as you can." - Elliott Smith

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

All sizes are posted in standard north American ladies size unless otherwise noted. Because vintage sizes can vary please consult given measurements in addition to posted size to get the truest idea of an items dimensions.

Feel free to search for your size by typing it into my shops search bar at the top of the page.

In addition to searching your size, searching os will bring up a wide rage of open sized garments that can work for many shapes and sizes.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my items are packaged minimally in a plain manila bubble wrapper made partially from recycled products. Clothing items are folded flat and footwear, hats and bags are lightly stuffed with recycled paper so they will hold shape in transit. Part of my reason for selling vintage stems from my desire to do something eco friendly and it is my belief that adding any unnecessary packaging, fillers, and wrapping will contradict my shops mission.

If needed, gift wrapping is available upon request at no additional charge. Please contact me at point of purchase to request this service.
