Grand Opening of CharmingShopVintage

Hey there everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I can't even believe it's Sunday already! Where did the time go? This Saturday marked a huge occassion for my shop. I opened CharmingShopVintage - the vintage section! Just as I've said before, it's an entirely different Etsy shop, but each one will be linked together, so you can click back and forth through both.

Here are the links: - click here for the vintage shop! - click here for artwork, handmade jewellery and confetti!

This new shop is very important to me, because my whole life has been built around vintage, ever since I was very young. This is my dream. I will try to bring the best of the best to you through my new shop, and I hope you enjoy everything! I have started with 23 items to launch the shop, but will bring in more and more each week. Every Saturday, there will be more added, so make sure you keep checking back often! You can expect coupon codes, cross promotions with our sister shop, CharmingShopLove and maybe even some themed sales. 

Here are some of my favourite items from the new shop: 

This extra-mod shift dress is the epitome of the sixties. I can't get over how retro it is! It'll fit the right lady like dream. I only wish it fit me!
These aren't just fabulous mugs. They are part of a large four setting dinnerware set! It's in such amazing condition for it's age. And you really can't go wrong with a black and white setting for matching with your existing kitchenware. I can see these pairing really well with festive orange dishes for the Fall.
This duo came all the way from Wisconsin with me, from week long road trip I took early this September. Not only does this squirrel have the dreamiest eyes, the nut gives it a kooky, quirky vibe that I really enjoy. If you are weirdly drawn to salt and pepper shakers, like me, you'll like these two.
This Whiting and Davis Mesh Purse was part of my personal collection. I've had it for 6-8 years now and have only worn it out a couple of times. Mostly it was a show piece in my vintage accessory collection. It was a special treat to have it in my life and I took great care of it. Things like these are meant to be treasured. I had my fun with it, and now I want someone else to love it just as much as I do.
If you want to look glamourously vampy this season, you probably need to check out this 1940s feather hat. This piece is extra tiny, but oh the things you could do with it. I always picture someone wearing it with deep red (almost black) lipstick and a showy, flowing black dress with lots of draping. But keeping it crisp in a hat collection is equally lovely. This is definitely in pristine condition and has it's original hat box from the store it was purchased from here in Winnipeg. Now that's rare!

Stop by the shop to see 17 more listings and more photos of these five. And please don't hesitate to ask me more specific things about the other pieces. The best thing about vintage is their stories. I love passing on their past if that's something you would like to know! Remember, there will be 10 -15 more next weekend too. Thanks for stopping by. I'll see you soon!

  1. So glad you opened up this shop. I can't get enough of looking at vintage you have some really great pieces that I am sure will find a loving home. That blue dress is amazing but not my size either! Can't wait to see what other items you will be adding.
