One of my favorite features on Etsy is Pounce. I was recently looking through the Undiscovered Shops that are waiting for their first sale to see if there were any new vintage shops. I think one of the great thing about being a vintage seller on Etsy, is the sense of community. I've found that other sellers are willing to help promote each other in the effort to promote vintage overall. I love that! Here are a few new vintage shops that I found...

Someone dear recently asked that I provide a bio so that they can write a feature on my shop in an upcoming blog. Write about me? ICK! It's easy to write about my, shall we say....unconventional... life as a kid since it's almost like remembering someone else...but current day??? YUK!
Anyway, while I was arduously typing and deleting, typing and deleting, it occurred to me that my collections probably tell more about me than most of the boring stuff I can drudge up and commit to… Continue

I love hunting for hidden vintage treasures... the pieces I really love and can't part with, come home to stay with me. The others get offered up to other vintage lovers in my Etsy shop. These are some finds from the past few weeks that are sitting on my "not sure" pile. I really like them and am not sure I want to part with them...

Here in Central Florida, Renninger's is THE place to search for collectibles and antiques. They are located in Mt. Dora ,Florida and are open on the weekends. But, four times a year they have their Extravaganza where dealers from all over the country rent space outside and sell their wares.
This was the last one until November. There will be Antique Fairs every month but nothing on the scale of today's show.
We got there around 9:30am and it was packed. There's a flea… Continue

Having just opened a vintage shop on Etsy, I noticed a forum post about The Vintage Village. I've been a "collector" for years and can't get enough of great vintage finds and information.
This is a great site! I'm looking forward to going over every nook and cranny filling my brain with all sorts of vintage info...well, I have a vintage brain anyway.
I'm going to Renninger's tomorrow. It's an Extravaganza weekend. The last one I went to I forgot to bring my shopping cart… Continue

It's been said that my daughter set the standard for Madonna. From the time Nichole was able to dress herself; her style has been ever evolving. She has gone from preppy, punk, swing, rockabilly, 40's and 50's style etc. As she made her way on to the vintage scene as did I. Always had an affinity for antiques and vintage, but now I had a real excuse. Oh, I just have to get this for my daughter.
Nichole is married now and living in England with her husband Neil. They are both in to Vintage… Continue

Many of you have never even heard of the term "watch cock" so one asks, what is a watch cock?
It is the hand-made necessity of the inner workings of pocket watches during the 1700's. Most were made of metal alloys or even pinchbeck..copper and zinc made to look like gold.…

The best dressed Victorian ladies wore chains...lots of them! They wore them long with a locket or lorgnette (handled reading glasses) on the end, gathered with a decorative brooch at the bust line, and even wrapped… Continue

I didn't type the title wrong. I really meant grouse and perhaps to some...gross! Back in the Victorian days, animal jewelry was quite the rage even though we think of it as being bizarre. Conservation and protecting the wildlife was not a concern and hunting trophies from expeditions were made into elaborate jewelry. The grouse claw above was a favorite often set with a large… Continue
