mens vintage ties

i have been coming across many mens ties lately...i have always had a love for ties, but who am i to judge what a man will or won't like? i've never worn a tie before, so i imagine i am pretty clueless when it comes to tie shopping. but at one of my spots, they recently have received ties, ties and more ties! they kept catching my eye during visits, so i finally decided to check 'em out.

ok, maybe that was a bad idea...because they were all so awesome! i found myself grabbing one after another after another...not good for the BTN budget!

i came home with my ties and then left them sitting in inventory for about a month. my hubby came to check out my inventory and he saw the ties and he loved them! i allowed him to take what he liked because he claims that he doesn't have any ties. then our good friend came over and i wanted another mans opinion. he fell in love with 4 of them, so i let him take them to a good home. all homies seem to get one round of freebies at their first time shopping with me. i don't mind; i'd rather my items go home to loving homes and get used than sit in the cold and emotionless inventory room.

so after the boys in my life ransacked my tie finds, i am left to present to my vintage fashion friends vintage ties that come in handwoven & italian silk and include brands such as: Girgio Armani, Avanti California, Johnathon Lake, Cosy, Hardie Amies & more!

i'm gonna show the guys some love this weekend and spend my time posting all these fab ties. check in with our store soon for some tie lovin'!

vintage pink pumps by amanda smith

the other day i had an was the same day that i claimed my yellow samsonite, which has been airing out for the past week and is now closed up with fabric sheets. after cleaning it all up, it really shined up nice on the outside.

anyways, this is about the adorable pink pumps i ran across. so i was knee-deep in the shoe and purse section when i came across these adorable pink pumps. examing them, i noticed how pretty of a pink they are. not hot pink and not soft pink...maybe it's the faux alligator print that creates that perfect shade of pink. the inside is an adorable and super clean silver and pink with amanda smith printed inside. the bottoms are in good used condition and feature 6M. the heels measure approx. 3 inches in height and the shoe is made of leather upper.

my vintage yellow samsonite

a couple weeks ago i found a blue suitcase with goodies inside of it. i was forced to make a cruel decision that day: pick the blue suitcase with goodies in it, or take the yellow samsonite. i chose the blue case because of the curiosity the items inside brought out of me. but i never forgot about that beautiful yellow samsonite suitcase.

yesterday morning i awoke with one mission: thrift shopping. you ever get those feelings that if you do something it will prove successful? well, that's the feeling i had about going thrift shopping. i went to my favorite spot and had to control myself from running in. i went straight to the luggage section and...WOOHOO! the yellow samsonite was there! i snatched it up and caught myself grinning all the way to the purse and shoe section. i picked up 15 great vintage bags and 3 pairs of adorable heels, all which will be for sale.

i'm so excited about my new piece of luggage that i had to post some photos of it. this baby is going on my palm springs trip this coming weekend.

vintage village - a vintage fans heaven!

after a long and successful 4th of july weekend, last night around 9pm i caught a better than naked bug and spent a couple hours online looking for websites. i came across this network called ning. it's so cool, way better networks that fit your individual and business requirements. and you get to meet new people that share your same interests and are very supportive!

so speaking, or should i say typing, about new people...i joined this cool network called vintage village. if you love vintage and retro, you should definitely check this place out. all us vintage business owners are there, retro rambling and inventory sharing...

see you there?
