Well, that escalated quickly.

From a once in a while hobby to a full fledged part time ( ... mostly full time, who am I kidding?) business - time has certainly flown!

What really is there to say? I adore shopping. Like, really really love it. And it really isn't the SHOPPING (per say) that I adore - but the adventure. The acquiring. The hunt for something that everyone else has overlooked. The rather mundane part of selling vintage, like the mending, photography, editing... well, over time I've learned to love those things too.

As time has gone on I find myself drawn to specific styles rather than eras - whether or not they are in 'vogue' at the time. A 1940's princess coat. An over the top 1980's prom dress. A uniquely styled 1950's gown. Now-a-days I look less for 'quantity' in my shop and and am drawn more to dazzling and unique items that really stand out in a wardrobe.

So as a vintage seller among a sea of other sellers, that is my dream. To provide a bit of sunshine in your closet and to help you be the boldest, bravest, most unique person you can be, one garment at a time.
