I came across this video from Etsy recently which features a man who is living and breathing a (sadly, but true) dying American dream.

source source source source The original creators of a youth market. I love stalking vintage images of Teddy Boys. You can't deny appeal of a badass who knows how to wear a handsome button up shirt. I'm also in love with this Best Coast video directed by Drew Barrymore. Ugh,... Continue reading

A tragic tale of stardome gone wrong, yet another star joining the "27 club" with the likes of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Marilyn Monroe, Elivis... and the list goes on. While her career... Continue reading

About 5 years ago I had a red lip obsession. I wouldn't go anywhere without my red lipstick, most often paired with bright red nails. A career in the restaurant industry ruined that fad for me for some time but since switching to work in the world wide web, I... Continue reading

Syd here! After a long day at work, I found myself cruising Etsy (as usual..) with a life saving glass of wine and a serious desire for more animal skulls and feathers for our house. I love collecting feathers and small animal bones if I ever come across them outside,... Continue reading

Today, while Pete was snoozing from working an early shift, I floated around the city to some of my favorite thrifting and vintage spots so far. I went to a Salvation Army on NE Halsey which was pretty unsuccessful, not to mention how rude some employees were. Then I went... Continue reading

Yesterday I played hookie and worked from home in the morning, escaping to the beach in the afternoon. It was a much needed endeavor- 90+ degrees, full sunshine, and a vehicle willing to drive the 2 hours to the shore. I went with some of my oldest friends and prior... Continue reading

We're obsessed with cruising through Etsy shops and can literally get stuck for hours. We'll start out looking for vintage sunglasses and then suddenly find ourselves realizing we need more vintage milk crates for the house, small animal skulls or new cat eye glasses.
