happy customers

sometimes i get tempted to close up shop. it's easy to feel like i can't do it all, and i certainly don't want to quit being asher's mama so if something has to go, it would be my shop.
i only work on it a little each week, and i wonder if its silly. or a waste of time.
but then i get an email like the one i got from this sweet girl.
she bought this 1950s teal dress for her sweet sixteen party and said that it helped make it a special day!

and that makes me want to keep doing what i'm keep hunting, hand-washing, sewing, ironing, taking pictures, packaging. so that lovely clothes can go to lovely people and bring them joy.  and that the 1950s dress can have a new life :)

i just wanted to share this picture because it made me so happy.
i would love to see you in your Adelaide's purchase, too!  oh, and here is the original dress :)

thanks for reading, m.


  1. Yes, indeed. Keep up the good work and go with what brings you pleasure.

  2. I know exactly how you feel. There's a certain Catch 22 to selling vintage online for me - I love doing it, but I sometimes put so much pressure on myself that it becomes stressful. I think the key is to go easy on yourself and do what makes you happy. :)

  3. What a fantastic photo! It really warms my heart to see young people wearing vintage like this. She and her friends look so fabulous!

  4. That dress is so beautiful!

  5. fabulous! I love that shared love of vintage between myself and the dear, dear people who supply me with their special finds!

  6. What a lovely dress!
