6 days ago someone who knows me better than I know myself suggested that I do something that I never had enough guts to do before. I took him up on his offer and havent been able to turn back since. You all know my love for vintage. Being in thrift stores is almost therapeutic for me - so when I thought about what I wanted to do in 2011...I wrote nothing more in my journal except "Go big..and dont look back" And thats exactly what I am going to do.
But Kate...what exactly is this suprise? Okay okay...I made you wait for it. I have decided to open up an online vintage shop! Its always been in the back of my mind as something I wanted to do but I never took the plunge and actually decided that I was going to do it. I woke up Monday morning with no fear anymore and decided I was just going to do it, and if I fail? Well whatever then - atleast I gave it a shot. So my week so far has been filling bags and bags with vintage clothes that I have handpicked from local thrift shops (is it sad the women that work at these shops already know who I am?) washing garments, hemming them, repairing them, and getting them ready to be sold to lovelies like you! Im going to start out on Etsy and see where this takes me. Stay tuned....Postcards From Vintage Boutique is just around the corner! x
