So for the past few weeks I’ve been blogging about all of the amazing collections I’ve been building on eBay. But I haven’t shared how to make one with you! And for that I am embarrassed and might I add, a little bit ashamed!
I’m so LUCKY to be 28 and living this beautiful, amazing, blessed life of change and connection and growing character! Thank you all for inspiring and for being a follower / supporter of Sammy Davis Vintage! It gives me great joy that after 5 years of Sammy D Vintage, I’m launching a NEW site at SammyD.TV that I’ll be devoting full attention to moving forward. We never stop growing – no matter how old we are. And when we stop growing, well, we’ve died. And so to grow is to live. Here’s to another year of life – and a blog post celebrating the beautiful things which honor its meaning and message of love, peace and joy.
About 80 percent of my wardrobe is secondhand and it feels great knowing that I’m consciously consuming fashion that’s stylish, sustainable and jam-packed full of substance. So when eBay asked me to curate some more collections for their amazing #finditfollowit campaign, I decided to make a collection totally dedicated to the most fabulous thrifters of all on eBay: The sellers of secondhand style! Featuring finds from Violetville, The Kissing Tree Vintage, American Archives, Vulture Culture and Thriftwares … this collection is home to SECONDHAND STYLE THAT SINGS!
Symbolically, an owl represents wisdom. Owl necklaces became popular in the 1970s and the trend was called “Hoot Couture.” Because the ’70s was a time of political, moral and ethical exploration in the United States, the value of wisdom became embedded in the nation’s consciousness. The features of an owl appear more human like too, as if you’re staring into the eyes of your reflection in the mirror. Which is why when choosing an owl necklace, you get to choose a necklace that mimics your inner being or sense of self you’d like to fulfill.
