Etsy Shop Launches on Mother’s Day

As a tribute to my mom on mother’s day I am launching my Etsy shop with two vintage suits she owned and wore.  Click here to see my main Etsy page.

My searchable name on Etsy is ModelJVintage: no spaces and capital M, J and V. I decided to start my Etsy shop with items from the 1970’s and 1980’s. From the research I’ve done it seems to be the place to market items from those decades. I believe it’s the younger, hip, DIY shoppers on Etsy that currently favor those styles. It’s funny because if they hadn’t become popular and resurfaced in current fashion offerings I wouldn’t appreciate them as I do now, nor see the connections those decades have to styles from the 20s, 30s and 40s.

The suits I am starting off with are two vintage early 80’s pants suits that my mom wore to sell real estate and work in showrooms. There is a banana yellow linen number by Anne Pinkerton and a magenta wool one by Adolfo. Both are in pristine vintage condition.

It’s amazing how contemporary they look. These are two wonderful suits that weren’t as big in the shoulders and thighs as those to come in the later 1980’s.

It’s a wonderful sense of accomplishment to get this shop up and running. I look forward

Vintage 1950’s Dining Set up on eBay!

A vintage yellow formica Dining Set from the 1950’s went live today on eBay! It will be up for 10 days. Please take a look and see if you are interested. It’s a nice size for NYC apartments. I love the bright yellow table top and the light yellow of the chairs. They work well together and make it more subtle than if everything was so bright. I’m taking a chance listing it for .99 cents to start. I hope that it draws a crowd of buyers. This is only my second listing on eBay so I’m still overly excited about it. More coming soon as well as listings on Etsy!
