A new shop

I bit the bullet and opened a new etsy shop devoted to vintage scarves.

 Probably would have done better if I had done it in November, but one does what one can. Name?....foulardfantastique 

Actually I am quite pleased, I started to sell right away and have been featured in quite a few treasuries already.....like this and this.

There is a method in my madness. Tomorrow I am off to New Zealand for 2 months. The scarves are coming with me and hopefully I can continue to buy and sell from there. It  gives me a great excuse to visit every op shop I come across.
I have been to New Zealand many times before, if I were 20 years younger I would emigrate.
I will be blogging and hope you will enjoy following along..

  9. Congratulations on your new shop! I love the banner on it. When I was young, we chose our scarves as carefully as we chose the rest of our wardrobe - and wore them on our heads! I remember wearing scarves over my hair rollers also - quite the fashion statement. ;)

    Did you remember to pack the embroidered cat that I liked on your Etsy shop? If you email me direct, I'll send you my phone number (and address if you need it again)
