Long for the good old days? the simpler times? and the cool fashions that mark out those time? Well Karen of SmallEarthVintage lives in that cool world we call Vintage. Treasure hunting for cool vintage stuff is one of her favorite pastimes and has turned into a business 10 years ago and now she has been on etsy for the past year or so. Karen and her significant other are back from their vacation/road trip/treasure hunting. She is currently resting up but I can't wait till she posts her newest finds.
Originally from NYC she now resides on a lake in Michigan in a vintage house surrounded by everything she loves including her dog Lucy. Some of Karen's favs:
What do I love? Clothing--full circle skirts, cardigans, mod prints, Vera scarves. Jewelry--big and bright plastic, rhinestones, brooches. Housewares--Pyrex in primary colors, Branchell melmac, atomic Temporama. Furniture/housewares--Herman Miller bucket chairs, Heywood-Wakefield coffee tables, 1950s lamps, Lucienne Day textiles. Kitsch!--ceramic birds and squirrels, paint-by-numbers, amateur paintings of dogs.
It's always an adventure when visiting her shop, you never know what you may find. Here's just a few examples of what you could discover there. These are some of my favorites.
You can follow her adventures and get updates
on newest finds by checking our her blog.
They just don't make clothes like they used to. These make me think of Doris Day movies, Katherine Hepburn and Lauren Bacall.
Yearning for a bit of nostalgia, stop by Small Earth Vintage today and pick something for yourself that will take you back...........
