I've often toyed with the idea of selling vintage and other bits and bobs that strike my fancy, but I just don't know where I'd start. And really, I don't know that I could do it as well as all the shops I adore. I have met so many lovely vintage sellers, especially through Etsy and have gotten to know some even better through my Etsy Confessions series, too. Probably my favorite, favorite of all is Vic and Lily, who I actually came to know when I was out to dinner at Grassroots Pantry, where she is a server. Though she wasn't working that evening, I saw her little card with her shop details and I knew I had to check it out. You can read my interview with her here.
Vicki has quickly become a good friend. We first met up at Classified on Hollywood Road to chat over brekky and for me to buy some lovely pieces from her shop. I've visited her booth at markets and try to see her whenever she's got a pop up shop. She brings many unlisted items and her selection matches my style just perfectly.
Now I have the pleasure of working with her to handpick some special items that she will be listing in her shop. It's a little vintage rescue we've got going on. Part of the joy of wearing vintage is the story behind each piece, and part of her joy of selling vintage is knowing that a piece she's curated will go to a new owner who will really appreciate it.
Over the next couple of months, she'll be listing the pieces I handpicked. Do go have a look. She wrote about this little collaboration on her blog, too. You can read her blog post here.
