I am taking a little time out from all the moving to enjoy a cup of earl grey tea and a generous piece of molten chocolate cake. My feet ache like crazy and I could honestly go to sleep right now. In fact, I just might right after this.
Today I went to my last vintage buying appointment in California and scored some really amazing pieces all from the 1920s to the 1950s with one really awesome white cotton pantsuit from the 1970s. Damn that I am only 5’0 tall as this would be a definite keeper if I were 5’10! I also picked up a bunch of Victorian jewelry and 1930s and 1940s jewelry and several belt buckles. I’m not quite sure what I will do with those just yet, but since the new house will have a designated sewing room/craft room, I’m sure I will get to crafting something out of them!
The move is approaching so quickly and each day I grow more and more excited! The other night I could barely sleep as I just kept thinking how I will arrange my new office.
What has me even more excited though is this move has really given me a new perspective on Adored Vintage and how the next few months are going to shape up. Wrapping up and packing all the vintage I have amassed over the past few years has made me realize moving forward what eras I want to focus on and what styles really get me all a twitter.
I am really excited to start sharing the process and the story of collecting and selling vintage again. I took such pleasure in photographing pretty racks of clothes, my vintage dress forms, pretty little vignettes around the studio, photos from my vintage buying trips…and I’ve realized I haven’t done any of that as of late. So, yes, I am quite excited about this too!
And so, I am signing off for now… finishing my tea and cake and going to go to bed listening to some new history podcasts.
