Hey kids, we've got two new sections in our online shop. First up, we have "5 dollars or less," which is an assortment of jewelry, accessories and clothes. Some new stuff, and some that's been on the site for a while:
Our other section is brand new, as we're branching out into housewares and knick knacks. This is where we keep the kitsch:

Our far-traveling jewelry supplier Reid came 'round the shop last week and we had a special showing of some of the amazing pieces he's got his hands on in the last month or two. We're loaded up with some beautiful new silver and precious stone jewelry, including earrings, rings, pendants, and bracelets. We've got some very cool bold silver rings (like the flower one below) and some great stones, including arizona turquoise in green, blue, and magenta, as well as some great red coral and malachite. Here are a few of the bits and bobs we've got in the shop now.

As the winter season slowly winds down and the spring season begins, I feel myself quite excited to put up pretty summer dresses on our Etsy. Spring is in the air, today at least. The icicles are falling off my eaves as the sun slowly melts them. You can go outside without mittens on for the first time in a long time. Light bounces off the streets, wet with melted snow, so sunglasses are a necessity for the first time since September.
I'm also looking a bit sadly at our teal bomber jacket, which didn't find a nice home this winter. I don't know about other places, but it's still cold enough to wear it, so we'll keep it up for a while longer yet.
A more practical part of the winter season ending, of course, is that we pull off our old stock in the store and make room for all the new consignment and vintage coming in. Changing seasons is a chore (we have a big store) but it's also sort of like Christmas comes four times a year. What lovely things has this woman brought? Will it fit me? And of course, the spirit of giving tends to come up around season change, as well. Our unsold merchandise mostly goes to charities around town.
That's the nice thing about second hand. So many more people can get joy from these clothes.

So, we've had some shirts up for ages and ages and we're thinking they need a bit of a rest. So, they're coming down on February 17 for a little bit. But! Before they do, we're going to be putting them on 50% off for the next few days. Last chance, guys! check them out here. Here's a sample of some of the ones you'll be missing:
