An early love affair with vintage

It all started in 1985 at the age of 10 years old. My family went to the drive-in on a Saturday night to see Back to the Future. It was there I developed a love of 50s curly hairstyles, full skirts and a deeper crush on Michael J. Fox.

Continuing on over the years, I enjoyed watching old movies, paying no attention to the plots but to the hairstyles and costumes. I loved the way the ladies and gents were so polished and put together. My family bought an old vintage pink and white mobile home to put on a piece of property near the beach in my teen years. We hit estate and rummage sales and antique stores for kitschy vintage items to decorate our vacation shanty by the sea.

Onward and upward into my 20s, I sighed over issues of my mother-in-law's Victoria magazines and vowed to win the lottery so I could buy an old Victorian house, decorate it with gazillions of teapots, doilies and feminine furniture. And then a friend introduced me to Country Living and Country Home magazine and there I decided I wanted to fix up an old house and turn it into a bed and breakfast whilst having time to have picnics in my yard surrounded by well-manicured grounds and a picket white fence.

Reality had me working for a big box hardware store in a department where I had a lot of free time to browse through more home decorating and lifestyle magazines and dream big. I was selling online on another site as a hobby. On my days off, I perused yard sales and thrift stores for clothing and housewares for my own family's use.

Fast forward, my hobby became my full-time job as my "real" job went away. A friend mentioned her love of Etsy during a conversation of our mutual love of vintage. And Pardon My Past was born in 2008.

When I'm not enthralled with the hunt for clothing and vintage, I enjoy reading, going for walks, quoting movies from the 80s and early 90s, watching Dr. Who, cooking, cat herding, fixing up my late 70s house and doing laundry.
