10 Years

This week marks 10 years since I began selling my closet cast-offs on LiveJournal and then started selling vintage clothing for the first time! It’s been such a journey for myself and my business since then! I originally photographed items & modeled in my bathroom with a little point & shoot camera, crazy! Next it was outside in front of a huge hedge and in front of a patterned sheet I hung on the wall. Nowadays I have a dress form, professional lighting and backdrop set up and a DSLR camera. I had no idea that my little hobby would turn into something I completely love and cannot live without! I’m still working on turning that hobby into a successful business and a brick and mortar, but I am so pleased today that I have reached this milestone 😀

Thanks to my Mama the original photographer, assistant buyer and mender! Thanks to my Dad for helping support my dream, dealing with tons of clothes in the house at all times and sorry not sorry that I am not a professional athlete or cop! ;p Thanks to my original dress form Mona and my mannequin heads Marian and Marilyn! And the biggest thank you of all is to you my reader and customers, you light me up! (I know its cheesy but its true!)

And for fun here’s me being my goofy self modeling vintage in 2006-2007:
