Blogger, Stop being Confusing!

 
Dress: Orange Olive Thrift Jacket: Orange Olive Thrift

These are some of my purchases from yesterday, the print of this dress caught my eye in an instant, I just adore the fact that at first glance it looks like polka dots. But in actuality it's tiny little flowers. Also, this jean jacket fits perfectly, not too short or too bulky, and it's nicely broken in. Which is one of the benefits of shopping at thrift stores, especially for jean products.

I finally surrendered and bought and industrial strength clothes rack for my room. As of right now I have all of my excess clothing in folded piles on the floor, which stay folded until the point when I decide to wear something in said pile and then my room turns into a clothing disaster. I'm thinking of starting an Etsy store to pass all of my great finds onto the next exited owner. Considering I wear everything a handful of times and then it just sits there. Anyone have an Esty account? And if so how do you feel about the website?

I really like etsy, very simple and easy to use. No bells and whistles really- but who needs them? I love my rolling clothes rack. Your
thrifted jacket is great!

OH COOL! Industrial clothes rack sounds hardcore! Oh yes, start an etsy store. I'm gonna do that too, I think. In the fall, I'll be taking a book arts class, it involves making paper goods and book, etc. If I do a good job, I really wanna sell on etsy, we'll see.

As I said on chictopia, I love this dress. I'll wear my navy floral dress sometime just for you :) We could be twins!!! Hehe, but you have better clothes though!

I'd definitely suggest opening an Etsy account! I've been debating doing the same thing and selling some of my finds on Etsy (well, I have an account already but am not selling on it right now). Also, lovely dress!

I love using Etsy. I was a fan of ebay before, but it was time consuming to sort through all the crap to get to any legitimately vintage items, and I hate the idea of fighting over the things I'd like to own. It's as bad as a sale day at the mall. Etsy sellers' descriptions and photography seem more on spot, too. I trust the site, and all my purchases, save one, have been excellent, and personal, experiences. I can't wait to see your Etsy shop online! I found your blog today via Sally Jane and have gotten tons of ideas to scour my local thrifts for.
