The very first wish list was made at the beginning of 2019. It included items I would like to Find throughout the year (or all at once, ha) in the wild to sell.
Let’s review this years list before I reveal the new list
A BIBA Dress
70s LANVIN Print Dress
A Carpet Coat
Judith Lieberman Bag/Belt
50s Men’s Suede Knit Cardigans
Suede Sherpa Jackets
70s/80s Doc Martin Boots
Ruffle Tuxedo Shirts
Whenever I found an item I would post an image and mark the item off my list. Because I had several items that were fantasy, I didn’t do that well. I was able to cross Doc Martin boots and Ruffle Tuxedo Shirt off. Although I didn’t find a Suede Sherpa jacket, I do have a couple of vests. They are not listed yet but will be in the eShop by the New year. Technically, I did not check them off, but willingly I did.
I thought about making my New list more attainable but I am
also not sure how this Next year will play out. Here is the New List-
Mens 1950s-60s Madras Plaid
Men’s 1950s Trousers
2 Tone Shoes- Guys or Gals
Spring 1960s Trench Coats
1970s Platform Sandals
1950s Sailor Trousers
New Year, time to get out there and start hunting!
Counting down the top reasons to shop my E-commerce store
and not Etsy or anywhere else.
5) It’s Cheaper-I am able to list in Canadian dollars. I do not have to pay at least 15% more for Etsy fees. Yes, I do have google ads, but that’s part of my expenses. Overall, the items are still less expensive. And it’s transparent so you know how much you are paying for shipping because the calculator tells you the rate from Canada to wherever you are or where you want the parcel sent.
4) It’s just a bit more personal- Here I am more invested in
my success, which means you get to deal with me, a real person, A small
business owner. Not some intermediary entity, who doesn’t really
care about either one of us!
3) Shop safely and securely. I accept Paypal and Square. If
you look in your web browser on the site’s URL you will see the small little
lock. That means it safe to add your info without worry.
2) I can do so much more with my own shop than with Etsy.
Layaway, Promotions, Email Lists, Contests and more. Signing up with the shop
means I can keep in touch with my Guest’s and not have to worry about Etsy
Tou’s (whatever they are). I will still respect your privacy as I am a discreet
1) This is my Brand. Not Etsy’s brand. You can get to know
what my shop is all about and that means what I’m all about too. I am bringing
the 5 star service I had on Etsy to attirelyvintage.com. And after 9 years on
Etsy, I am dedicated to bringing quality and Unusual vintage goods for Every
So in Summary, you get Branding, Planning, Safety and Security, Personalized Service and Fair Prices. Choose your Style, It’s Attirely up to you!
My first blog post I told you a bit about my journey on
Etsy. This post will tell you a little bit more. Let’s start. I’m a very boring
person. Nowadays anyway.
Ballet, Swimming, Reading, Poetry, Fashion Design, Arts and
Crafts, Poetry, Writing, Art, Art, Art! Then, vintage clothing! This weird line
is my interests from the time I was a kid. I have had a varied history of like and
dislikes. I guess I was a commitment phobe.
I didn’t want this to become or read like a dating
application! I am nomadic. I travelled in my younger years, now, I do not hold
a passport. Trinidad & Tobago, United States, Europe, Israel, England, Cuba,
Do these things tell you much about me? I have been writing
these Shorter short stories for Instagram on #TBT. Small segments that tell you
about how important some special pieces of clothing and the role they played in
my life (They are still on my feed). I do not know why I remember some things
and not others.
Perhaps, in the future, you will hear my stories of teenage
nights of debauchery, The treachery of friends past, the wail of a good time
with best mates and so much more.
