First Etsy-versary!

The first year of Second Wind Vintage, on Etsy, has been great! I've learned so much and have had a lot of fun with my shop. I was just thinking back to my first vintage sale ever.......

Haha! I amuse myself with the few random times I've modeled things in my shop. That dress was pretty cute though, right?

I recently opened a second Etsy shop. Please take a look at Pumpernickel Toast!
My goal for my first year has been 200 sales and I'm happy to say I came pretty darn close. I look forward to the next year. Second Wind Vintage is growing momentum all the time and I look forward to fun times to come with Pumpernickel Toast.

Thanks for reading my blogs and for shopping my shop!!!

For the love of awesome graphics and wonderful printed goods.

Have you seen the Mr. PS etsy shop?!

This seller first caught my eye when I noticed she was a featured seller back in February. Everything in her shop is wonderful! I have loved this "Yummy" design since the first time I saw it.

I asked nicely and she agreed to modify the design in order to make it fit on a tote bag for me. I've only seen a picture, but I LOVE it already. I'm a tote bag junky. I use them for everything..... not just my groceries.

I'm ecstatic! Can't wait to throw this baby over my shoulder!

Primaries in Lace.

I have found some wonderful lace dresses lately! They absolutely bring out my ultra girly side. Seriously, who doesn't love lace and bows???

I'm almost positive that primary colors have never looked so pretty! 

Here's a pretty neutral too.....

Mug Love.

Do you have a favorite mug you always go for when it's clean? You know, the one your coffee just always tastes better when sipped from. A mug so well loved you'd never let anyone else drink from (because it's so worn from age and use...... and you'd actually be embarrassed for anyone to use it)?

I'm not sure why, but I feel compelled to show you my favorite mug. The one that always makes the mornings a little brighter. It's icky and old and I LOVE it!

First of all it's huge. The more coffee it holds, the better! And second, while I'm not a real big Tinkerbell fan, I just love her totally bratty and mischievous expression!

Bet you thought my favorite mug would be of the vintage variety! I do happen to have some really cool vintage mugs, but this very much not vintage mug is my very favorite.

I want to know, what does your favorite mug look like?

feet treats.

Lots of neat shoe finds lately!

I'm really excited to put them in the shop. Watch for them over the next couple days.

I know it's like teasing to show them to you and then tell you you can't have them. Aren't they cute though? Man oh man I love those boots! While I'm talking about these beauties.... does anybody have any good advice on restoring vintage leather?! They need a little TLC.

Gotta run now! Time for dinner with the sis at the beach!
