It's no secret that almost every penny I get from Etsy goes right back into the machine. My dad is an addictions counselor and Lutheran minister (yes I get the irony). And he says that most addicts deal so that they can pay for their own drugs. This is true. Vintage is my own personal cocaine. Sometimes after visiting a particularly dusty antique store I even get nosebleeds.
Here are few things I've gotten recently that have made me swoon.
This Celluloid Necklace was an eBay find. It's flipp'n pristine! I've already taken it apart so that I can make a ring, bracelet and necklace with it.
Skylar's Candy Clips are awesomely constructed. Lovely details. The flowers on these purple hair clips have some sort of treatment on them that makes the petals stiff and perfect. I also scored two beautiful flowered headbands. (Technically this isn't vintage - but I think it has that 1940's little girl look to it.)
But my most favorite acquisition? This crazy beautiful, minty fresh Mid Century Modern sewing box. I bought it to store all my buttons in. But now that I have it I think I may use it as a jewelry box. Just lay some felt inside the little boxes. The picture doesn't do it justice - it makes my heart race it's so lovely.
