Hey vintage lovers! Happy MONDAY!
Saturday night I fell into a rabbit hole of vintage online shopping. You vintage lovers probably know what I mean when I say “rabbit hole.” You type a few search keywords into Etsy, Ebay or Market Publique and before you know it you’ve got pages upon pages of results, a dozen tabs open AND you somehow fell into PayPal within 15 minutes of even beginning to shop!
I found myself spending Saturday night “shopping in” also because with the beginning of August right around the corner, vintage sellers are clearing their summer inventory to make room for fresh fall stock! This means discounted items already in the store, free shipping opportunities and even an extra sale incentive with coupon codes for in-the-know vintage lovers.
The beauty of vintage is that there is an ABUNDANCE of it — and that like your favorite mainstream stores manufacture and market the trends for YOUR tastes, online vintage sellers work to build similar branding and aesthetic so that you can depend on them to provide you with vintage you’ll love.
I curate vintage according to inspirational theme every week in my Shop Finds page. Tonight, the themed collection around “summer road trips” debuts! I can’t take complete credit for it though, because the Sammy Davis Vintage intern Meg Ann is the vintage mastermind behind the stylish finds to be unveiled tonight.
But until tonight’s Shop Finds page goes live, keep reading after the jump for some vintage sale shopping motivation as inspired by my own purchases last Saturday night!
I went a little vintage wild giving happy homes to a few lots of vintage jewelry, a vintage cameo ring and awesome owl necklace from the Etsy shop I Have a Thing For You.
Plus, I share the deets on some serious sales happening RIGHT NOW at four of my favorite vintage shops!
There’s always a ton of activity going on this site, so in case you missed it I want to make sure you are IN THE KNOW! Not only do I encourage you to shop vintage sales, but to enter to WIN vintage, too!
This week’s Gratefulness Friday Vintage Giveaway is thanks to Ebay seller Mutha Love Vintage — and boy, did she sponsor the MUTHA LOAD of a vintage prize pack! Definitely check out the post to enter for a chance to win.
That’s not the ONLY giveaway happening right now! I was on My Fox 5 news Saturday morning to talk about the sustainable benefits of shopping vintage.
Brooklyn boutique 1 of a Find Vintage wanted to spread vintage love to all of you by sponsoring the giveaway of a lucite “Mother of Pearl” vintage bag I showed on air on Fox. All you have to do is “Like” 1 of a Find NYC on Facebook and write on the wall that I sent you on over!
So shop vintage, win vintage, talk vintage, act vintage! SPREAD VINTAGE LOVE!
