When I run after what I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me, and without pain.
From this I understand that
what I want also wants me,
is looking for me and attracting me.
There is a great secret here
for anyone who can grasp it. - Rumi

"If there is anything to be gained from the loss of our beautiful son, it is for all of us to go forward with the inclination to live with a faith that embodies action: Help a neighbor, fight for a cause, love your family."



You create your opportunities by asking for them."

Let me say first, that I'm an easy buyer. I really tried to get my refund when this seller said they were out of stock on a listed item. That's ok, but just refund immediately. Can I give zero stars?! Because I would. Not only did this seller not have the shirt, but then they kept pushing off the refund AND when it was finally issued a month later I was only sent the money as if I were a merchant and not a buyer and ultimately I incurred all their Paypal seller fees. So very unprofessional! BUYER BEWARE!

I regret not putting my shop on vacation this summer as I was unable to react to this purchase on time. I could not locate this particular item in my inventory quickly, though I did try very hard. I did not want to cancel the transaction because I want to make my customers HAPPY. This is a beautiful shirt, at a great price, and the buyer was so excited about it's availability. It is one-of-a-kind. I refunded the customer completely plus fees after I contacted her and heard about the mistake I made using "merchant" refund on Paypal and not using the "buyer" option. There is no reason to beware. I have always been an HONEST seller with very good feedback history and excellent customer service history. NOTE that buyer is an Etsy seller herself and might have been more understanding.

About

Love to find the best curated vintage for my customers.

I've been collecting vintage for a long time. Started selling it online about 8 years ago through eBay but came to Etsy almost as soon as Etsy opened it's doors. Love Etsy !!!

It's hard work selling because it is a long proces:

thrifting - sorting through racks and racks for the perfect item
photo'ng - fun fun fun
editing photos - fun fun fun
measuring - not so much fun
listing the item
describing the item
customer service online for questions, etc.
shipping

Start it all again.

I do love it 'though it's not easy.

I love when I make my customers happy and I appreciate any feedback and photos are great

Why Buy Vintage?

Here is a WONDERFUL explanation as to Why Buy Vintage. It was written by one of my favorite vintage sellers -- Lullie Vintage -- who once sold on eBay but I cannot locate her on Etsy. Not sure why. I loved her shop !!! Here is the link to that story:
