I'm back?

I'm back from my vacation, bodily anyway. I arrived home saturday evening but I still haven't adjusted to this time zone. Which means trying to live a normal life, go to work, etc while also going to sleep at 8 p.m. and waking at 3 a.m. because I'm still 5 or 6 hours beyond. As a life long sufferer of insomnia, I'm really hoping to snap out of it soon. I'll have stories and pictures of my trip as soon as I find the little cord that connects my camera to my computer. I'm really hoping it's in my husband's messenger bag because I've looked in all our other luggage (all unpacked to various degrees).

What I do have though to tide my lovelies over is the rest of the pictures I took at the vintage shop where I work. The first edition focused on furniture and decor. And now for the clothing and accessories!

This is a little corner that I used to ignore but is now really my favorite part. It has lovely old nighties and robes and two piece pajama sets. My mom bought me a pair of baby blue vintage pajamas and now I'm hooked. I always thought they were so grandma-ish but they are actually cute and comfy and sometimes even glamorous.

I've found many many dresses on this rack. I buy most of my vintage here, most things never even see this far into the store. They're mine as soon as they come through the door.

This is the glamest checkout counter ever. It's mostly cameos and rhinestones and a few other valuable gems. You can even see my let's Go Western Europe travel guide in this shot!

This is more jewelry of the costume variety. Lots of beads and brooches! Lovely scarves to accessorize with.

A very small selection of the vintage shoes. I keep falling in love with shoes that will never fit. My feet are wide and the ladies of yesteryear had such narrow little footsies.

Another little sample of the massive amount of shoes i can never have. Or at least never wear.

There is nothing more perfect than a wool (or even cashmere!) cardigan. This section has expanded since I took this shot in summer.

And some of the hats. We got in those feather/veil headpieces so popular now but ours are original! I curse my oddly shaped head/face.

So please be patient (if you actually care to see my vacation pics) and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wow, what a beautiful store, the shoes are just stunning. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Oh wow, I'd love to rummage through all the vintage jewellery.

  3. I want to shop here. is it excessive to want to drive 18 hours just to do so and see my lacey?
