My Love for South Carolina

There is something so simple and serene about the south. Every year my family from New Jersey takes a trip to South Carolina, which my mom's and dad's home state to visit the family. We have so much fun, BBQs, shopping, and most of all spending quality time with family that we don't see or a regular basis. This piece is land is part of my grandmother's land behind here house. Some days I would just stand and graze into the sky. It is a place where I can go and read a book or sit and right my thoughts away. I love South Carolina and can't wait to go back soon......

Walborg Purse! Lovely Find

I love it when I come across an item that has a label attached to it. Researching is part of what I do everyday, and it adds more to my knowledge as a vintage dealer  more and more. So today up for sale in the Etsy boutique is this lovely Tapestry purse by handbag designer Hilde Walborg. She established her business in the 1940's in none other than NYC. There were handbags made in Belgium, France, and in later years Hong Kong.

Clothes shopping, ugh

Written by Fermin Washington

What is it about shopping for clothes that is so hard for me? I don’t know why but I have the hardest time when I go into a giant department store and there are so many options for me to deal with. I really wish I could come up with something that didn’t require hours of time but really, when I found la VIA I knew it was the perfect place for me. It’s actually owned by a girl I went to grade school with and she’s decked the store out really nicely. There’s http://directstartv.com/ satellite going on the big tv, lots of custom made shelves and the best part is, there are personal shoppers working there! It makes it so much easier for me when I can just go in and start trying on clothes that someone else picks out for me. I really wish I had thought of this sooner but I guess it’s like they say, better late than never, right? I will probably shop like this forever!

Decorating Project

So I am still working on a decorating project that I just love. Of course scouting for vintage clothing and accessories for women is my first love, but I also love decorating as well. My client lves red, black, white and of course tiffany blue. She wanted this Miami vibe for the living room, bed room, and the bathroom (which is done) if you remember the post showing the boudior. So for the kitchen, it was painted tiffany blue take a peak at the pics to see the color and the wall of disco for the living. So Fun!
