Always a struggle to figure out the best way to market an online shop. Sure, you have great vintage items but some things have to be touched and seen in person to really be appreciated. Pin tucks and weighted enamelled cast iron and starched pillow cases are well and good in photos–but how much better in person? To that end, we’re trying to wrap our heads around how to get our items into people’s hands–without having to rely so much on the postal service. 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, the Post Office is great. But, isn’t personal service from us even better?

A couple of weeks ago, we participated in an arts, crafts and antiques show here in Pensacola–and we had a blast! Not only were we able to see lovely items going to folks who really appreciated them, we also had a chance to learn more about some of our items. I love history!

This last weekend, we went to an amazing estate sale–filled with gorgeous vintage and antique clothing and linens.  Let me show you some photos of some of our finds!

So, what’s the best way to do this in real life?  James and I are toying with the idea of vintage trunk shows.  Simply having home parties seems to work well for some other home businesses.  How would it work for us?  Hmmm…
