Vintage Sneak Peek

I thought it would be fun to do another sneak peek. Tomorrow’s the kick off for my plan to list new shop items only on Sundays. So, if it’s Sunday, you can know that there will be new vintage for you at TheVintageDesignShop. This will give me the week to prepare the vintage for the Sunday reveal. Tomorrow I’ll do another post with the items all revealed at last.

Till tomorrow! Now back to the photo editing…

Heathcliff and Catherine on the Windswept Moors

One of the fun things about having a venue on Etsy is the ability to make Treasuries. What is a treasury, you ask? Well, it’s a curated list of items from other sellers centred around a theme. The key part is that you’re showcasing items from other sellers, not yourself. Hopefully those featured will check you out too, but that isn’t really the point. The point is to have some fun curating on a theme.

So today I was inspired by the grey rainy day outside here in the Pacific Northwest and it reminded me of my time living in England. Also an avid fan of English literature, windswept rainy moors came to mind, and then I thought of Wuthering Heights. And then the idea came to me to make an Etsy treasury on the theme of ‘Heathcliff and Catherine on the Windswept Moors’ with some of the wonderful vintage and handmade objects that Etsy sellers have to offer.

I worked for a couple of hours reviewing listings and putting together sixteen listings from different sellers. I’m pretty pleased with the result. Nothing like a bit of vintage literary romance to pick you up on a rainy day! What do you think? Feel free to leave a comment below!

Here’s the link to the treasury:
