Achieving balance at any time in our life seems like a uphill battle. During the holidays, it’s more like an uphill war. Wearing ankle weights. While dragging 30lbs of luggage.   Trying to give the perfect holiday gifts- without going mad running from store to store, site to site; trying to find perfect holiday outfits- without going mad running from store to store, site to site-  is enough to bring out the Ebenezer in even the most Cratchit among us.

There is nothing quite as satisfying than being able to reply, “it’s from this charming little vintage shop” when lustful eyes demand to know where you purchased your outfit-making bracelet.  Just as thoughtful, one of kind gifts with a story, are the type we’d all love to place (and have waiting for us) under the tree, but proper vintage shopping takes time, research, and a trained eye.  With stockings to hang, cocktails to drink, and carols to be sung-not to mention that pesky job to attend in between- who has the time to peruse vintage shop after vintage shop, looking for just such items?
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Vintage inspired items evoke a similar attention to detail and craftsmanship as their old world muses, and though there is nothing like the real thing, the buys of today are the vintage finds of tomorrow.  If you’re looking for that special gift (even if it’s a gift for yourself!), our selection of vintage inspired accessories will put the mistle in your toe.
