This is the category I hope will delight the lover of vintage fashion! Maybe you’ll learn something new,
be tempted by a new arrival, or enjoy a peek behind the scenes of a little vintage shop.
– Tips and Reference –
There will be posts with tips on things like cleaning and repairing vintage, little tutorials on different fabrics,
and proper terms for things (ie. What the heck is passementerie?).
I hope to share some of the knowledge I’ve picked up here and there over the last 20 years,
endlessly fussing over all these lovely goods!
– Behind the Scenes –
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. – The Wizard of Oz
(In this case, “woman”) and “oh okay, have a peek then.” I know I love to see a little to the left of those
perfect product shots at a pile of sewing or a sudsy tub of floral print fabrics.
Posts here will invite you into the work studio
(in my case, the 4th and 5th bedrooms upstairs and a little of the living room).
I’ll take you along on a buying adventure, or perhaps show the progression of a renovation project.
– A History Lesson –
I think it will be fun to give a history lesson now and then. Maybe I’ll pick a designer to learn more about,
or choose a fad or style to do a little research on and share what I dig up.
I might even choose a vintage item like Shoe Clips! and do an exposé. The possibilities are endless!
– Shop Updates –
Finally, I’ll hope to tug at your vintage loving heartstrings by introducing you to some of my latest finds,
shined up and pretty, ready for their new forever home.
Maybe I’ll pack the car with some lucky pieces and have a photo shoot out on the town,
or create little vignettes around the house to share.
Here, the lovely pieces I’ve found and brought back to life can have their moment in the spotlight.
