While everything I buy cant possible come from a small business because I am not Rockefeller, I am a HUGE fan of helping other people live their dreams and make a profit doing it, so I try to buy as much handmade,vintage,recycled,garage sale ,thrift shiz I can. And why not? You KNOW you are going to buy.You KNOW you are probably going to spend too much. So why not buy something TOTALLY unique that not one other person will have, at a reasonable price and help out some nice young entrepreneur? Or old, your VFG is not ageist. How could I be? I love old people, the older the better.Some of my happiest days as a kid were spent at a nursing home I volunteered at in High School. Yes it smelled like pee and yes there were dirty old men with catheters trying to goose me*why anyone would think peeing in a bag is an aphrodisiac I will never know.* but there were also really nice knowledgeable men and women that really helped to further my knowledge of vintage living.
So before I get off my soapbox,I just want to say, its not a bad thing to buy mass produced repro, or to only patronize your favorite vintage shop in a certain neck of the woods. Ive done it.
I just don't want you to forget that there is a whole wide word of one of a kind vintage out there and its sold by women like you who love what you love! They know how it sucks to get a vintage item that has gone through the ringer when the seller told you it was pristine. They know what its like to search and search through piles and piles of worthless shiz till they find that one gem of an item. They feel your pain and they feel your triumph, and the sellers I feature on here are the creme de la creme. If you see something you like on here ? Spread the word or buy it! Email this blog to your other vintage fashion loving friends , help spread the word about these sellers!I don't get a kickback or anything like that, I just love their shops, have had great experiences there and want to share that love with you. A side note? All these ladies measurements in their stores are spot on.I have NEVER bought anything that was misrepresented in either size or quality.
Let them help you look fabulous.
Today I will feature, as promised Girlswhowearglasses and VintagePointShop !
MK, first Girlswhowearglasses.
I am in Love with Mary's shop.While she may not have many things in her store, what she does have is beautiful.
I have a collection of quilted dress robes that I totally wear to work.I love them. Wearing a quilted robe dress is like wearing a blanket made of Jesus.For reals y'all , they are that awesome. She had two, a leopard one and a red one.I bought the red one and some other lucky lady beat me to the leopard one!
Here are some pics for your pleasure.
