It’s summer, and oh-so-hot in over one third of the US and there are fires out west…difficult times, still we go forward as there is no other way to go…….no sense in being too sad and morose as we feel for everyone affected and send our caring thoughts. We find ourselves still loving our vintage and collectibles and finding solace in these beauties from yesterday. Just maybe they bring us luck, through the waves of soothing time gone by and center our minds and spirits on the delights of these precious garments and their lives at 50s parties, 40s days at the beach on vacation, and 60s rock concerts, freeing us from concerns of today.
We are being very lucky up here in the north country…upstate NY. I do hope you are fortunate also, and just maybe you are as you have found yourself here at Vintage Lucy today. I have not been keeping up with this new blog, though labor of love it is…….am trying to work it into my daily routines but this hasn’t happened so far….just am too busy watching the world and using my Vintage Lucy time for finding new beauties and shooting photos to keep the collection here growing and fresh. I have been enjoying my cherished return customers as you come back for seasonal treasures, and have also been noticing many new names, being drawn to Vintage Lucy for the first time, buying unique personal collections for their vintage wardrobes…..so many dynamic and mysterious names, and I can only imagine the faces with the kind notes as we communicate back and forth.
Today I start showing you some sleeping beauties….special hidden treasures that sometimes get lost in the shuffle as you search for your heart’s desire, though they are truly favorites of mine that I hold dear as they stay with me in the VL collection. I hope by drawing your attention to these featured treats, you will look even more closely the next time you shop Vintage Lucy…so much more fun than regular retail shopping, don’t you think?
