You Can Never Have Too Many Shoes...

I love shoes but what girl doesn't?!Unfortunately as a housewife I don't get to dress up and go out as much as I'd like so most of my vintage shoes are in the closet collecting dust except on those times I feel like vacuuming in high heels,that's not because I'm trying to be some cliche 50's housewife but more so because I never grew out of dressing up.

I was fortunate a few weeks ago to find a pair of "everyday" shoes on Ebay in MY size!and I wont them for a mere $15.51Glory!Glory!Glory!Any vintage shoes lover can tell you how wretchedly annoying it is to have your heart skip a beat over a pair of shoes and then sink to your stomach when it hits you that its not in your size.Shopping for shoes online can be a coin flip even when they are in your size but they fit like a dream.

So ladies and gents check out my "new" Thunderbirds.Box is copyrighted 1954.I love dead stock!Or new old stock as most people prefer to say.Oh and disclaimer should my mother ever become very computer savvy and stumble across my blog I can hear it now so Yes mother those are shoes on the kitchen counter,you'll be so kind as to forgive as they were the only spot safe to take a photo with a wide awake and very grabby toddler.

My First...

I love Etsy and it's been very good to me.Since my shop opened this April I've been blessed with 268 sales so far.I decided to give back a little and actually buy something for myself for once so I treated myself to this deadstock lucite and chenille tapestry purse!For $18.00 it was a splurge for me (gah I know I am horridly cheap to a fault at times) but so worth it!My very first item bought on Etsy!

Oh and you'll forgive me though it did arrive safely I'm too lazy to take a picture of it right now (I have a good excuse I have my son in my arms) so I'm using the photo of it from the listing.
