Well I’ve hit the ground running this year! I opened up a second etsy shop. In the words of my dear husband, “WHY?!!!!!”. It’s called BeMyVintageValentine:
I am specializing in funky nostalgic Valentines with some antique German pull-outs thrown in. I really like having a shop that sells a specific item. It has a cleaner look and make the posting of items a million times easier and faster. Not that I’ll be neglecting Paperdollsforboys well, maybe until March!
I had more in my personal collection than I realized. This is one of the reasons selling vintage has been so satisfying for me. I have gotten to really look at what I collect. Appreciate what I have already by taking nice photos of them and then sending them off into the world for others to enjoy and treasure.
Here is one of the old German ones I listed today:
And my personal favorite, and not just because of the TWITTER reference (paperdolls4boys on Twitter if you want to hook up):
Somewhere between the polka-dots and the maryjanes I fell in love with her!
I feel a little guilty though, I will admit. I get annoyed when I walk into Walgreens and they super jump on the holiday supplies and decorations and here I am, just squeaking into January, peddling my Valentines. I would feel more guilty if I didn’t plan to have the shop up year round!
Vintage Valentines for ALL YOUR FRIENDS!
