It all started with a couple of beaded purses from the Fifties that I bought several years ago at an antique store. A couple of purses led to a few more with the intention of giving some to my friends. I kept them all! I ended up collecting coats, sweaters and jewelry and, if you know me pretty well, I almost always have something vintage on.
People are always stopping me to ask where I got whatever I am wearing. When I tell them that itís vintage, they often look a little puzzled, because they canít just go to a department store and buy it. Since so many people love vintage fashion like I do, and donít know where to get it, I decided to start buying extra vintage items to share with all my family, friends and their friends. Itís a great venture for me; I love the styles of the 40s, 50s and 60s, and I feel like Iím on a treasure hunt all the time!
I hope you have the chance to come to one of my trunk shows and get some of this great stuff for yourself!
See you soon!
