"Goddam money. It always ends up making you blue as hell."

Rest in peace, J.D. Salinger. His books meant a lot to me when I was younger, and I suppose now is as good a time as any to re-read them.

And in the spirit of the above quote (who can't identify with that?), I bring you the crass commercialized portion of this post, a preview of a few accessories coming to the shop.

I so wish these 1950s oxford pumps were my size--really nifty gold-painted "weave" detail on the vamps.

1980s gray suede foldover booties with stacked heels.

1970s deadstock two-tone men's loafers.

1960s cherry red mod boots.

Bronze lace-up oxford flats.

Crazy 1970s white stacked heel mary janes!

Brown and pumpkin faux lizard tassel pumps.

Deadstock 1960s mod pink grid print Italian sunglasses.

The cutest little acorn and oak leaf tooled leather wallet.

1960s pale pink weave-textured vinyl handbag.

Super-charming silk Scottish plaid bagpipers scarf.

    Gorgeous men's loafers & very sweet tribute. It will be interesting to read Catcher In The Rye 20 years after the last time I read it. I imagine, a completely different reading. :-)

    To the great writers, who are not forgotten! (& your fabulous taste in vintage clothes, dear.) ;-)

  2. Great quote + Great shoes = lovely post :)
    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  3. love how you segued from one topic to the next :)
    and, ahem, what size are those red mod boots?

  4. Found you through the comments on Sulu design. For many years my boyfriend + I supplemented our income + paid for his college doing exactly what you two do in the very beginning days of Ebay. Sunday was the best- making the rounds to the dirt flea markets in the country. I still thrift shop for about 99% of items that come into our home (I have to buy underwear & socks new).

    Right after Salinger's death I found "Franny + Zooey", "Nine Stories" & the above hardback copy of "Catcher" at a thrift shop. I read them all about 20-something years ago + am now re-reading F & Z.
