Happy New Year!

Dear Readers,

With every New Year comes new hopes, dreams and discoveries.

I am looking forward to 2016 and sharing all my new vintage & antique “heart throbs” with you. *Really only the discovery is new, never the item.

I get just as excited when I come across an awesome piece as I once did for New Kids on the Block or Aerosmith.

Thank you for following my blog or just visiting every now and then. Don’t forget:

Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present. ~ Bil Keane

9 Signs of Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show Fever

vintage show graphic

Boring wardrobe, sadness induced by lack of style and lust for something new & different are only a few signs of Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show fever. Fight the fever tomorrow and shop your heart out!

I am looking forward to stopping by the show and scouting out some unique finds.

Every year I task myself with finding something scarce and specific. Whether its a funky tie, lustrous personal ornament to drape myself in or an interesting bomber jacket I am certain I will find my hearts desire.
