Sometimes I dream I'm antique shopping, often with my friend Laurel, whom I don't see much any more but who is the slowest, most thorough browser I have ever met. In these dreams, I am always about to make "the find," which as all vintage aficianados know is the thing that gets your heart racing, that keeps you coming back again. Interestingly, very rarely do I dream about buying; just about shopping.
Well, today is Saturday, estate sale day, so I'll make this brief. The picture above shows a vintage Treasury I made for Etsy, a combination of beautiful items that I "curated," which means I poured through different vintage shops like they were a huge antique mall and came up with these "finds."
These are all items sold by members of the Etsy Vintage Street Team, a group of some 65 sellers who sell vintage items or items made with vintage components. We've got a blog, and a section in the Vintage Buyer and Seller Community, (a larger networking community). It's a great way to meet people who are way more knowledgeable than I am about all things vintage. A great way to learn more and, of course, to shop.
