Our 7th anniversary on Etsy!

And the shop is marked down 20% until Monday, November 2!  We are so appreciative of our wonderful, stylish, smart customers, and have felt very lucky to be able to actually do what we love these past seven years.  There is something so satisfying in finding decades-old clothing--very often dirty and stained, and in need of mending--and bringing it back to life, and into the closets of fellow lovers of vintage.

Cheers/Prost to you, and thank you for helping us live the vintage dream!
