Our Paint by Number was featured on The Land of Nod blog! Granted it was a year ago but still, The Land of Nod, the kiddo version of Crate & Barrel!  I wish I would have made prints of this paint by number because I daily get convos asking if I have another. Thank you so much to The Land of Nod for featuring us. Camping is our favorite too! You can find the link to the post HERE.
Tis a very good day indeed to find out that a big brand featured you on their blog, this girl boss will take what she can get.  But seriously you should check out their blog, it's super inspiring and not just for decorating a kiddo's room.

Just Be You

Like a peacock your beauty is multiplied when you spread your wings and show your stuff. Don't be afraid to be who you are, each peacock feather is flawed and imperfect but collectively they create something of great beauty. Getting deep Trunk Nation, this was a pretty serendipitous moment caught the other day while picking on a farm. I am finding that the most important thing to remember in this uber competitive vintage business is to just be yourself and keep on shaking your tail feathers. Hope y'all have a great weekend!  Don't forget I will be that the Chicago Outfit Roller Derby on Saturday from 6-10 pm we can shake tail feathers together!

North Shore Flea Wrap Up

Thank you to everyone that came out to the North Shore Flea in Highwood over the weekend.  It was a great time and lots of things found new forever homes which is also stellar!  Up next is The Chicago Outfit Roller Derby on June 21st.  Oh and a HUGE thank you to the man that chased my tent down Green Bay Road when it turned into a sail boat during the huge wind storm.

New Fashion Tab

Heya Trunk Nation!  Been prepping and shooting inventory all morning for an online update.  While I'm not a shop that specializes in vintage clothing or accessories.  I really know next to nothing except the modern designer education I got during my short stint in New York.  But in my personal style I do try to incorporate something vintage in each outfit I put together.  So therefore I come across a "fashion" pieces that catch my eye from time to time when I'm on the hunt so I thought perhaps it was time to start a tab in the ol' shop just in case some of you are into incorporating vintage into your wardrobes. 

I like timeless pieces, things that won't go out of style.  I'm not much of a trend chaser, I like simple, comfortable and unique pieces.  There are currently two handbags and a chain mail coin purse hanging out in the fashion tab.  The Whiting and Davis evening bag was hard for me to list as I love their designs but I can't be selfish.  The Eel skin handbag in the middle caught my eye with the natural contrast in the design and that it's so smooth and soft.  The unmarked chain mail coin purse, well it was too sweet just sitting where I found it so I had to adopt it.

Hope y'all are having a fabulous Saturday!
