Pay No Attention to the Woman Behind the Drapes

The new sewing room isn't organized and pretty enough for me to share pictures with you yet but I do have some other exciting news. For a while now Cami and I have been waffling back and forth over whether we should start another Etsy shop to dip into the vintage market, and I am proud to announce that we decided to go for it!

To be honest I started off with a pretty safe bet by selling a dress that I had bought for myself quite a few years ago, when I was quite a bit slimmer. I had long since given up on it ever fitting again, and given that I never got a chance to wear it anyways it wasn't hard to let go.
Normally this would be where I link that pretty photo of the dress to the listing in the new shop, if the thing hadn't sold within an hour of posting. Seriously, less than an hour! Obviously I underestimated the goldmine of opportunities here. So yes, sadly that dress is already going to be sent off to a new home. We do however have a few listings for some pretty cool old fabrics.

We also have some neat sets of vintage seam bindings, hem tape, bias tape and the like. My favorite part about the notions is that there's a color called "Atom Red."

The shop is a little bare at the moment, but I am still in the process of photographing a lot of fabric. Hopefully the listings there should trickle in as the days go by if I can stay on top of it. I will keep you guys posted on the giveaway, since it's our first, and the sellers first, it may be a bumpy ride!
