A while back I decided I would do blog posts highlighting talented folks on etsy or selling things. I have a friend here in town with a sister in Florida I remember visiting her house recently for a playdate, our daughter adores her son :-) and her showing me a wonderful photographic calender her sister had made. I loved it, then not long ago I had the pleasure of meeting her at Bible Fellowship when she was in town visiting I remember thinking how cool she looked and her sense of style.
Recently my friend posted a link on facebook to her etsy store, the power of social media right there. I added her sister as a friend and offered to introduce you all to her. She is cool, works full time from home and has three kids, I so admire parents who decide to decide to work from home, to be there more for their kids and juggle work as well. Here follows a little about K (she is shy :-)) and her lovely Vintage store :-)
I spent the first 9 years of my life in a small town in arkansas right outside of hope, and my grandfather, charles aubrey lea, whom everyone called "charlie," and my grandmother had chicken houses, and so did my family. when my grandpa wasn't covered from head to toe in chicken poop or chewing tobacco, he was a very handsome and dapper man, and i am honored to name my shop after him.
i am really inspired by the 1950s and 1960s, so that's what you will mostly find in my etsy shop. i love to knit, so occasionally you will find a handmade cowl or scarf there as well. i am hoping to add crocheted rag rugs at some point.
i sell only my favorite vintage finds--things i would wear or decorate with myself but can't keep because we live in a 1930s bungalow and the closets are too small to store all these goodies.
i also sell photos i have taken with a canon sureshot and a holga. i've listed the ones that speak to me most deeply and make me happiest.
you can check out my blog on the shop (firstname.lastname@example.org) for semi-regular updates to the shop.
