I've come across a bunch of awesome pieces in the past few months. Not only vintage clothes, but vintage fabric, antique lace, and scarves.
And it's awesome! Every time I buy something new, or go hunting for new treasures, it renews my love. I spend days imagining who will end up with this great piece of history that I happened upon.
And sometimes you have to take a chance...take a deep breath and either dive in or turn around and walk back down the ladder.
And sometimes you find out that gleaming clean pool is actually like a giant mud puddle.
Missing buttons, ripped seams, stains & funky odors are just some of the surprises we vintage sellers find. It's like winning more on a scratch ticket than you'd thought...only it's not...it's funky basement moth ball scent that takes five washes to lift.
Anyways, I had been putting off restoring a few things & all of a sudden those few things had taken over an entire chair at the dining room table. Like heaping-over-the-table-can't-smoosh-it-down-and-push-in-anymore takeover.
So that's what I've been doing and that's what's coming soon. We vintage sellers are like your Grandma...
"That button's a bit loose, Sweetie, come here & I'll fix ya right up"
