My name is Lynn Love Heins, and I now live in Ithaca, New York. I started buying vintage clothing in high school long before vintage was sought after. It was fun! I loved how zany and unique the fashions were! Throughout my varied career, I kept collecting as this treasure hunt became a delightful obsession.
I did a stint as a display artist/window dresser after high school and then worked as a fashion coordinator for Burdines in Miami. For 15 years I worked as a silver/goldsmith, producing my own line of jewelry and selling in fine galleries and museum shops in fifteen states, including The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and The Museum Of Contemporary Art in Chicago… then spent a long 16 years as staff artist and manager of a turn-of-the-century building in Northampton, Massachusetts, filled with thirty-plus stores and restaurants and lots of unusual folks (a steady paycheck with health insurance helps when you have children).
As time went on, I have become more and more involved in the vintage scene, selling my collection in multi-dealer antique shops and then on eBay. Hunting down the latest vintage finds and offering them to you is a full-time job – and a dream job, at that! I also offer artistic retro creations, accessories and handmade embellishments, most often using true vintage elements and patterns inspired by vintage beauties. (See the satin roses and halter tops!)
In the Vintage Lucy eBay store, you’ll find an inspired wide variety of true vintage, my greatest love, and a smaller collection of fine vintage-style retro fashions, with a specialization in dressy women’s clothing from the 1950s and 1960s. I hope that you’ll enjoy browsing the collection, and that you’ll visit me again soon. I’m always finding new things that I know you’ll love.
