|Load up the convertible! These 1964 vintage vixens |
are on their way.
Working online as a vintage clothing dealer usually means a lot of isolation within our little sphere. Inside the office it's a beehive of activity (and we enjoy the dickens out of each other)! But we're cut off from the outside world for the most part, with only the phone and a Wifi connection as the conduit to our customers.
It's a treat to work in this cozy comfort zone most of the time, but once in a while a Vixen needs fresh air. And - because we're into vintage clothes - we also "need" musty basements. We recently got a chance for both when the phone rang.
"Yes, do you buy clothing?"
"We do. What do you have?"
And the conversation begins. Usually it's a few pieces or a few boxes' worth, and they're shipped here. For local people we go on appointments. But then there are the trips.
This weekend begins a fun-filled trip to Philadelphia and points north, where we'll revel in the fashions kept by a family inhabiting the same house for 103 years.
Fun? You betcha. Fresh air? Well, some.
