On Thursday nights, I dream in vintage--browsing through antique stores, trying on ravishing hats and dresses (I'm size 2 in dreamland), picking up baubles and knick-knacks and treasures.
That's because Thursday evenings in the forums of Etsy (the website of all things handmade and vintage), a group of sellers far more knowledgeable than me gets together to gab and share their latest, or more likely the things they love from other people's shops. The conversation flies so fast you can get up for a drink and come back to find 15 pages have passed and three people have left, three more arrived. It's like antique shopping with a group of hilarious friends. I always leave dizzy and a little overwhelmed.
Here's a brief sampling of some of my new favorites from last night's vintage marathon:
Cactus planter from AuntiePrincess.
Stalker dutch doll from PetitPoulailler
(check out the eyes)
Metalware tray by LorenzStudio
Royal biscuit tin by SurrenderDorothy
Killer red heels by RetroCycle
Green camel salt and pepper shakers by SlushyGirl
This is just a fraction of the gorgeous, and sometimes hilarious, items shared. Newcomers, interlopers, voyeurs all welcome--it's most every Thursday night for 3 or 4 hours (I poop out after 1 or 2), in the Promotions forum, hosted by SurrenderDorothy.
