a few recent finds from my treasuring hunting adventures, now freshly listed in decorativeworkVTG on etsy: you will love love love this kelly green vintage straw handbag with its bright color and ladylike design, these classy vintage floral clip on earrings in a great creamy neutral with a touch of shine are the perfect bit of vintage to add to your November wardrobe rotation, I am inspired by the optimism of this vintage mug not to mention its boy scout history and kitschy patriotism, spend this holiday season making dances with help from this classic book on choreography, and this handmade belt is a pop of color and homespun goodness to accessorize your winter looks.
a few of the treasures i found this week are heading to Long Beach Vintage Etc later today: sweet vintage bag in excellent condition in a great and very wearable creamy textured neutral, a few vintage books on important topics like flower arrangement, christian sex, and word origins, i love this official state of California textbook with it’s colorful illustrations throughout teaching kids all about plants with seeds, old library books are full of great info like the fact that this christian sex book was last checked out in 1979, lovely vintage illustration of a milkweed from plants with seeds book, the dos and don’ts of flower arrangement (one of the many illustrations that fill this great vintage how to book).
ALSO: today is a great day to check out Long Beach Vintage Etc because they will be open late with big sales to coincide with the Third Fridays Twilight Walk tonight from 6-9 on Pine Avenue in Downtown Long Beach and if you head just a block down to 641 Pine Avenue, i’ll be there selling my handmade products for body and home made from my hand dyed fabrics.
Come say hi. Its my first attempt at being a craft vendor so i’d appreciate any support and feedback you can offer…
