I have been struggling with finding a good spot for shooting my Etsy photos. I am not sure if other Etsy sellers take as many pictures as I do. I think part of the problem is that my home has warm colors and is not well lit. This last week the sun was shinning so nicely that I decided to take my photo shoot outside. I was quite impressed with the shots. Read more at… Continue

I have been working very hard at getting ready for a big promotion organized by a group here on Vintage Village, which meant learning a lot of new tricks. To get ready for this I had to:
Start a BUSINESS Facebook page
Open a TWITTER account
Gather all information, publish and copy links.
Figure out how to get all my information on my VintageVillage page with LIVE LINKS!!
Well...I have a huge headache, but it could in part be because...I… Continue

I just wanted to announce that I took all the vintage & antique resource internet links I had saved over many years, plus ones that other people have suggested, compiled them, organized them and posted them to my blog. I will also be adding to this and subtracting dead links, so keep it bookmarked!
I think you will find it extremely helpful---no more searching through your favorites for that elusive link.…

I have been selling creating these sewing collections and selling them on my Vintage4u site on Etsy
! I have been saving up all the different sewing supplies, laces, trims, and what-nots and now I have plenty to combine into these groupings.
They are great for making a shadow box or making a boxed gift for a… Continue

Somewhat predictably, I've hit a wall and seem to have a case of blogger's block. This is probably not that unusual since I was on quite the prolific and chatty tear over at the official Moon Mandrake blog for a few weeks. So it's a good thing that we've decided to host a giveaway there
for a chance to win a vintage auto key fob (and getting some great comments!) Believe me, this is much better than the alternative… Continue

Anybody who knows me knows how much I love transferware--particularly Homer Laughlin's English Garden pattern (which technically is decalware, not transferware). So I was thrilled last week when I won this little creamer on eBay. I was the only bidder and I wondered why, until it arrived today and I saw it up close and personal.
The transfer is badly faded, and I think I know why, but I'll get to that. I went back to the original eBay listing to see if I should have been able to tell… Continue

I had a bout of insomnia the other night, and passed the time creating a blog. Stop by, post, and have some fun! It's all about the things we find that make us wonder, ponder, and laugh.

This is probably doubly blasphemous because I'm writing this -- and posting this -- on a Sunday. I will surely be sent to dark Hades for my actions yesterday which all innocently enough took place while selling our merch at an outdoor event.
We had the Pope for sale, you see. Not the current one but the super-beloved John Paul II. It was a heavy statue issued by the Danbury Mint that simply stated "Millenium Blessing." Kept under wraps, it never even made… Continue

I've looked into a lot of purses in all the shopping and buying I've done over the years. Some purses are empty. Sometimes I find the mundane like bobby pins, mints, hankies or matchbooks from a bar. And then sometimes I find the weird or wonderful like false teeth, an anti drug card game, parts of plumbing (yes, plumbing, I think it was part of a faucet).
Everytime I open a new vintage purse it's a moment of suspense - I wonder what will be inside treasure, trash or nothing… Continue

This is my VV Blog Portal Page...a good neutral place for you to jump off and be introduced to the Vintage Village site. I think VV is a great bridge for sellers and buyers ALL over the internet to meet, chat, talk shop, as well as to display their finds. I am very interested in ways to bridge these gaps between sites to help people find....kindred spirits!
