Vintage Nest Spring Show May 12th!

We had so much fun with the Vintage Clothing show, and plenty of pieces went to good homes.
I had a blast wearing a ridiculous outfit that my good friend Val described as something from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Carol in her little Peter Pan top with a big bow and checked skirt.
So now time to turn the shop into yet another theme!
This is so much fun.
Three vintage vendors and the theme is Mother's Day and Spring.
Planting all kinds of containers for the perfect gift for Mom, shutters, galvanized items... and a few items that have been NFS, but since we're "re-blooming"shall we say, I'm letting go of a few gems.
You'll have to come by to check out those prizes.
Oh what the heck, here's a teaser... my "Tourist Supplies" sign will be up for grabs!

Then on the 19th, the mother load.
Our annual rummage sale, and let me tell you this one will be our biggest ever as it is really time to let go of fabulous treasure that we won't need for future seasons.

Something new for the rummage sale.
In my closet I have some amazing items I have bought throughout the years at the Magic Jacket, dreamy linen pieces from Heart's Desire, and a few other fashion treasures.  
I had every intention of dropping them off at a local resale shop, but decided I would rather see some of you trying them on, having fun and possibly taking a piece home with you!

And that's that!
I cannot thank you (and you know who you are) for all the kind words, encouraging hugs... my heart is filled to the brim for each of you... especially knowing that this is not goodbye, it's the next phase!

Okay, just so you know I will be wearing my SBFSB's outfit again this Saturday and if you ask I will twirl for you.  Hey, why don't you wear something that you've always wanted to and come strut your stuff with us?  I promise we will ooh and ah over you.



  1. This is a sad, sad day for me. Viva was my go-to destination in DC. Love, love love the shop. Thanks for all you did over the years to inspire me and soothe my soul. Best of luck on your new adventures. Can't wait to see what's next.

    1. Dear Anonymous,
      You are so dear and I will miss you as well. It's a comment like this, written or said that makes my heart full, and all weepy at the same time.
      Thanks for sending this message.


I love to hear from you!
