Welcome to Vintage Lucy.com! Just starting here with my new blog….so there may be some unexpected quirkiness until I get my sea legs. Please do stop by my eBay store and peruse the collection….there are new beauties added frequently, and now things should speed up some with my fancy new computer on board.
First, I wanted to say, when you’re buying vintage you may pay more per piece, but remember you’re paying for the “mystery history” and the charisma that history has brought to the piece, even if you don’t see it, and most often you don’t unless someone has added a cherished button or some other such momento. You are also paying for the loving search that went into seeking out the item, inspecting it for flaws and determining if the piece can be artfully saved and presented…this process takes a lot of creativity and experience in itself. You should be delighted to know that the vintage treasures you are looking at and considering in Vintage Lucy are all one-of-a-kind…not massed produced anymore, even if they ever were a long time ago. “Now” they are chosen and loved, each sweet item, by the presenter, me….hopefully, all presenters are vintage lovers as I surely am, but you will have to ascertain that for yourselves each time you try a new store or seller. So, these thoughts for your consideration…..next post I’ll rave about some fun we can all have modifying our looks by how we wear our vintage and what accessories we add. Many of you probably play around for those quirky looks already, but here we can share our ideas. You just can’t get intense fun like that and the mystery charisma when you’re buying new stuff! And….buying new stuff is not recycling, another added bonus to vintage buying!
