something about july (shop preview!)

It was this time last year that Small Earth Vintage made its biggest vintage score--and I started this blog.

And yesterday, well, history didn't exactly repeat itself. But it nearly did! We decided to stop off at an estate sale en route to meet my childhood best friend and her family. The sale was just for kicks. We were running late and figured the good stuff would be long gone. But we still stopped. And lo and behold! We filled the trunk of the car with over 100 pieces of great 1940s-1960s vintage, mainly women's clothing, and mainly dresses, blouses and skirts. The below photos of my overstuffed car trunk don't show much, but you'll be seeing much more of it in the days ahead!

And now on to this week's shop preview...
