🙋🏻♀️Heya vintage sellers! We had a ton of new people pop into our private + Free Facebook group Etsy Junkies this week and we are getting down to business over there. The business of growing (and in some cases starting) our Etsy vintage shops 💃🏻. Come join us for all the fun- we’d love to have you! The link is in my bio if you’d like to check it out. 🦋🥳
Just your average #tuesdayootd ... in a RARE STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL #ossieclark dress 🍑💕🍑 This dress literally blows my mind! - I feel so lucky that I found it... I only wish I could breath in it 🙄😂 There is going to be one lucky lady out there that gets to wear and own this dress.
All too often i come across vintage and antique pieces I have a hard time letting go of. I spend my days with these items, tracking their origins and wondering about the lives, loves and losses they carry within themselves...frankly...I get attached. But at the same time I want to put them out in the world , a world too full of newly made things that may make it five hours, maybe five years, before being dumped, broken and without a second care, into landfills to litter the earth and be replaced by a newer, (temporarily) shinier, 'thing' soon to hit the landfill, too. I like things like way I like my people- a little less common (you probably have to sift through a lot of junk to find them, and you definitely want to skim off the top ), carrying a history and a heart, relevant in the moment of today while stirring a sense of remembrance and softer days, and built to last. If you read all that, here's an example of one I'm loving. Im feeling a need to mix things up so hold tight for a more of my beautifully problematic pieces. Excellent condition Vintage (circa 1970) Kirk birth month floral cuff. Metal: Pewter Width 1 in, length 7 in. "900/12 Kirk" Flower- Narcissus Month- December And while I love it I am rather certain that some beautiful December born soul is waiting for it to brighten their day. Price range online (from reputable sources) averages $30 plus shipping, if it's yours you can come pick it up at Dirtflower Crystals in Ellicott City for $25 (*+ 6% MD tax) , or message here, U.S shipping available #dirtflowercrystals#vintage#bastardcatcollective#ellicottcity#vintagejewelry#narcissus#pewter#vintageofinstagram
