Last week was just one of those weeks you never want to think about again. It was completely awful with no time for posting, hours sitting in the Emergency room and hardly anytime for living. Such a dreadful week though was followed by one of the best weekends I have ever had!
Saturday we woke up bright and early to take a trip to Pleasanton Texas about 35 minutes south of San Antonio. A vintage seller in the area bought out a clothing store that had been abandoned for at least 40 years, her warehouse was full of clothes from the 1950's and 1960's deadstock, new with tags. My favorite find of the day I would have to be a tan pencil skirt with small pockets, the only word to describe it would be BOMBSHELL, slim, past the knee, kick pleast and best of all it fits like it was tailored for me. Though the sale was a bit of a mad dash through the racks along side agressive vintage resellers, I came home with a pile I barely could see over while carrying it to the car.

Most of the items I picked up fit like a dream, a few though are a bit too small and no matter how much I work out after Thanksgiving will never fit me. Instead of adding all of these gorgeous items to my wishful thinking "these will fit someday" pile (which is quite large and since moving to Texas has only quadrupled), I have decided to open an etsy shop. Please forgive the horrible photographs of the loot, I snapped those in a jiffy this morning. All day I have been washing any dusty or dirty items and giving everything else a nice steam.
I buy a good portion of my vintage on etsy and love it, so I am thinking why not sell my vintage that needs a new home and that way I will have more money to spend on etsy. Ahhh a perfect circle. If you have any advice or knowledge you want to share about selling on etsy, please fee free to send me an email or leave a comment!
I am just a vintage girl from Los Angeles living in San Antonio with my boyfriend and our 3 dogs. Art, sewing, daydreaming and hunting thrift stores for things from the past keeps me sane.
