This coming weekend my gal pals and I are getting all dressed up in 1920s and 1930s Jazz Age styles for the New Deal Weekend Prohibition Picnic in Portland. So, naturally, the recent shop updates are all vintage 1920s and 1930s since thats where my mind is at right now.
So to begin, some VINTAGE DRESSES from the 1920s and 1930s and one antique top!

As the summer days get longer and hotter, all we want to do is frolic on the beach. Whether we are surfing or just soaking up the sun, we love doing it with our friends. There is nothing better than the sound of the waves crashing and sand between our toes.
And, of course, it is best to do it in style. The bright colors of our new vintage swimsuits really invoke this sense of summer fun.

I’ll be quite honest, I’ve been stressed lately. And it’s OK. I actually don’t stress out about things that often, but recently, even for me, I’m feeling a lot on my plate.
So, naturally, I retreat into pretty beautiful things. It relaxes me. It calms me down. It allows me to make sense of chaos I can’t quite grapple right now.
A desire to minimize, clean, and organize is bubbling up within me. And Spring still seems so far away but it will be here very soon (but not soon enough!)

I am still quite in disbelief the end of 2014 is so fast approaching! It seems just like yesterday I was packing up and getting ready to go to Arizona for Christmas (and came across a super amazing vintage haul in the process). The past few weeks have gone by in a bit of a blur. I’ve been working non-stop and lately feeling like I’m running on fumes.
I am sure many independent shopkeepers can attest to this…working on all cylinders and then suddenly having to crash and needing a major weekend of rejuvenation to reinvigorate the spirits.
Said weekend is coming up for me. Maybe. I’ll take some real time off and enjoy some more simple things. Like finishing up a couple of books I’ve started, practicing my embroidery, and starting up on calligraphy!
