Amy: I find them at thrift stores and estates sales mostly. Also, once people know you're interested in something, I find that family and friends come out of the woodwork with old rusted tins full of stuff their grandmother had!
I'm a novice. But I've just finished a series of private sewing lessons with a friend who is a master seamstress. We made an early 50s dress from a pattern my great-grandmother had sewn for my grandmother. It's gorgeous and I learned so much.
What's your favorite thing in your shop right now?
For sure I'm obsessed with the vintage Dior cloche hat in purple velour with velvety ribbons and bright feathers . . . what a dream. I think Sarah Jessica Parker should have this hat. I keep hoping she'll be on etsy one day and find it!
