What Do I Love Most About Vintage!?

I love antiques and vintage!  I started my first Etsy shop in 2008, and my passion has grown even stronger since that time!

So what is it that draws me (and many others) to vintage!?

Retro Barware

There is definitely not 1-answer to that question!

I love the hunt!  I love bringing my items back to life, cleaning them, and making them shine again! 

Decorative Rooster Plate

I really did not have much experience with photography before I started my Etsy shops, but I've really learned a lot, and have so much more to learn, but I love it!  It's definitely a creative outlet!

Melamine Teacups & Saucers

I have always wanted to get a marketing degree!  I feel like I'm earning one on my own!  I tweet, I flickr, I facebook, blog, and more!  That's marketing and it's fun!

Vintage teacups are a unique gift!

I love my customers too!  When I ship out an order, I like to wrap it and tie it with a pretty bow, so you feel like you're receiving a gift!  After all, we work hard for our money, so why not make it special!!?

I really love that my office is right here in my home!  Although my house looks more like a "hoarder house", with all of my shop stuff everywhere, it's still great to not have to go to an 8-5 job!

Find what you love to do, and you'll be happy!

I love the idea of wrapping your sales in a bow. It's a great idea and I like your philosophy about making it feel like your giving a gift. I am so stealing this idea. Hope you don't mind ;)
