Etsy Highlight

Because apparently WordPress is having issues (ie. I can’t make a simple entry on to a page work) I’m going to attempt to do it on this page. Not sure what’s going on but the Etsy spotlight goes to..

8/20/10 Featured Etsy Seller#5: yeahimgroovey

Vintage has always been my one weakness. Show me something from a by gone era and you probably have a follower for life. This is really true when it comes to yeahimgroovy. Her store is filled with such fun, inexpensive, stellar finds to make any search for the past fashions exciting. I am always intrigued about where and how the love of all things vintage came from. This is some of the questions I asked to fulfill my quest.

How long have you been on Etsy and how did you find out about it?
I found out about Etsy when I was 16 (4 years ago) searching for places to find vintage on Goggle, and started selling at 17

Where do you get your inspiration for your shop items?

Well, for my handmade stuff, I use a lot of “cute” fashion sense from Japan, but when I find vintage stuff, I try to find items that I personally would enjoy owning

What is your favorite item in your shop?

My favorite is my SAILOR DRESS, which is super comfortable and a perfect icon of 80s. And I also love the 40s!

What is it you do to promote your shop other then Etsy?

I promote with a Blog, Facebook, and the forums 🙂

DiY/319938227962?ref=tsWas there ever an item that you loved so much you just couldn’t bare to put it in your shop?

Yeah…some of my cocktail rings I am debating taking down and keeping right now.

Where do you find all your cool items?

I get them by going to Antique malls and thrift stores

What is your dream for your shop?

I’d love to have the ability to make some profit while I’m back in college in the fall 🙂

What made you decide to go with vintage items and are there certain items you look for?
I LOVE VINTAGE and am addicted to collecting it…my favorite items to find are enamel pins from the 50’s and 60’s but they are so very rare and extremely expensive.
