Announcing Serendipity Vintage!

This week I've been working to get my etsy shop up and running- I'm still adding items daily, but, I present to you: Serendipity Vintage!


I even shipped my first sale yesterday!  Is it weird that I was sad to see it go?  I do think it was one of the coolest pieces I had purchased for the shop, so I guess it's only fitting that it was the first to sell.


I'll just have to make it my mission to find more gems like this!  I do have one more trophy available currently: household-trophy1Wouldn't it look dreamy styled on a bookshelf?  And how about this sweet candy dish? Perfect to drop your keys in by the door.depression-candy3And would you like to learn how to be a 1950s Handyman?handyman2I could go on for days about all my cool finds, but I'll spare you the lengthy post and let you go check them out for yourself.  I'll be putting a link to Serendipity Vintage over on my sidebar and will be adding more items over the next few days (and of course as I collect new items) so be sure to keep checking back.I hope people will buy these items and love them as much as I do!

Vintage Goodies!

After talking about it for months and months and months, I'm finally deciding to bite the bullet and open an etsy shop of vintagey goodness!  If you follow me on facebook, this isn't new news, but I'm VERY close to having enough inventory to open shop (thanks to a few stellar estate sales and thrift finds) and I'm super duper excited!!  I'll even throw in a few more exclamation points for effect !!!!! Here are a few of the goodies that will be available:

Does the purple glass bowl look familiar?  Its twin is sitting in my office cubbies, but this one I got an amazing deal with a collection of stuff at an estate sale, so if you buy it, we can be purple bowl twinsies!  (sorry, the cheese-o-meter just went off the charts)

I can't divulge all my secrets until the shop's off the ground- I have a few things up my sleeve, but these are a few of my new faves:

vintage safety deposit boxes


vintage driving goggles

Why yes, those are vintage driving goggles and I'm very tempted to just start wearing them around the house.  That wouldn't be weird or anything, right?

Right now I'm a bit stuck on a shop name- all my good ideas have already been taken, so I need to get creative.  Any suggestions?
