I'm back from a long and much-needed vacation, so i'm newly inspired and have many totally thrilling new posts in the works : ) But first, let's take care of some important vintage shopping 'biz . . .
I've added some special new items to my Vintager Etsy boutique, with more to come this week. Many of the delights I will be posting were found during my recent vacay down the West Coast (from Vancouver to L.A.), which I will also be posting about (soon). Here's a peek at the current treasures on offer;
Above: A never-opened bottle of Avon's totally adorbz One, Two, Lace My Shoe bubble bath, hailing straight from groovy 1968 (can you believe the little bootie even has a red vinyl spat)? Great for a gift or as powder room decor, and too cute to possibly really exist.
A small section of the most fabulous psychedelic '70s contact paper on Earth! It can be used for countless projects (you can line all the drawers in your house with the giant roll I found, or wallpaper your entire boudoir!) Be sure to check out the amazing phrases featured within the design here.
A very rare Moschino figural guitar case purse (c.1990s), which was just re-released for the Cheap & Chic Fall 2010 RTW collection (as seen held by model Lee Hyun Yi on right). This purse has a ton of sentimental value for me, as it was what I carried during my first book tour, for the release of Life is a Movie Starring You, in 2000. It's not really in harmony with my new countrified life though, and i'd love to see it go to a loving, high-fashion home, and into the arms of a rock 'n roll girl with killer kitschy style. I'll be listing it this coming week. Also stay tuned for deadstock Dorothy Draper wrapping papers, crazy-amazing '80s vintage designer dresses, LPs and tzotchkes galore!
