Denim Days

When did designer jeans become fashionable?  According to Decades of Beauty The Changing Image of Women 1890's - 1990's  by Kate Mulvey & Melissa Richards, it was in the 1970's.  Styles come and go; but denim is a trend that is here to stay.  Below I show you some variations of this well loved garment.

Seven7 Premium Denim - Factory Distressed



American Eagle Outfitters Special Blue Issue Cat Eye Flare

Lets go Hawaiian.... Shirts that is

Aloha!

I hear a lot about Hawaiian shirts in a facebook group I am a member of.... So, I thought I would share a few pictures of the nice shirts I found while thrifting.  Some are sold and some are still in my eBay store.
I don't usually list items as Vintage; simply because I'm not 100% certain what IS vintage and what IS NOT.

Brand:  Island Shores
Brand:  Boca Classics

Brand:  A[x]ist

Brand:  A[x]ist

Brand:  Puritan - I love the swordfish on this one.
So, what's your take on Hawaiian shirts?

Have a beautiful blessed day!

eBay Milestone; $1000 + in Sales

My first goal towards eBay's top seller status will be reached shortly.  Sales paid to date are $993.07 with $77.75 ending today; for a total of $1,068.82.  I would provide a screen shot; but they usually turn out really small.  Number of sales:  76 paid + 4 ending today; for a total of 80.  This includes international orders; which do not count toward the 100 goal.


Now, I want to thank all of those friends who have been supportive of this business venture.

Regards,
Blondie

Bargains for Blondie's Boutique


The past couple of weeks; I found great bargains at the store where I have my booth.  In the above picture you see a nice rolling case that I will be using when I attend the Haven Conference next month.  I picked it up at 50% off the already low price of $9.99.  What an awesome deal!

I've been eyeing the plus size dress form for a couple of months.  The owners of the thrift store aka Fabulous Finds for your Heart and Home were having 25% off; so I finally bought it.  It will come in handy when I photograph plus sized clothing for my eBay store.

What kind of great deals have you come across lately?

Regards,
Blondie

What is Vintage? An interesting Article

As I continue to find more product to list in my eBay Store, research is an important aspect to provide the best description and price possible.  So when I cam across this article written a year ago, I began to feel a little old.  Since I grew up in the late 70's, this was a shock.  I hope you enjoy this article.

BTW: I may still have stuff in my closet from the 90's... not sure; but I might.

The 90's are Now Officially Vintage

Best Regards,

Blondie's Boutique - Booth Update

A lot of work, but a fun day on Saturday, May 31 - relocating my booth into another space.  I am still working on the layout with more attractive display of merchandise.  I welcome suggestions from my readers. What draws you into a booth?


Right - repainted furniture, clothing, stuffed animals etc.


My son's trumpet - used, not abused.

Fashion jewelry starting at 99 cents

Left - display case etc.
I would love to spend more time writing my blog.  Between a full time job, this booth, my eBay sales, and a family; not a lot of time left for writing.  Have a blessed day.
