im an antiques expert


so the last few weeks or so i have been trawling the streets looking for vintage treasures to sell in my sparkly new etsy shop stevensstuff .for ages now i have been looking through the vintage section of etsy and i have been getting more and more excited to start this new adventure, and so far its a success, i sold 6 things in the first few weeks, and that to me is brilliant, i love taking the pictures and styling them to make the products look the best they can....and i hope you will agree that my shop looks nice, i kinda like it more than my handmade shop at the moment...but i wont give up on that, maybe i just need some new motivation...so for now its a vintage way for me, with a few supplies thrown in for good measure....my david looks at what i get and just shakes his head in horror, but as i always say..one persons trash is another persons gold..

so you know what im gonna say next...go NOW to stevensstuff and grab yourself some vintage.

Oh I love vintage. So happy to see a UK seller of it on etsy- my paypal balance won't be so happy though! Roll on payday and I'll be paying your shop a visit!
