That's right, you read that correctly. Street Scene now has an Etsy store here that you can shop to your heart's delight! This is especially handy for all you readers who can only salivate over the fantastic things we get in the store...now you've got your chance to snag some Street Scene for yourself!
With this new venture, we have a few goals for our Etsy we'd like to share with you: 1. Like we said, we want to make Street Scene available to all those who are interested and don't happen to live in Lexington or Kentucky - vintage goodness should be shared with all willing participants!; 2. We often find some really fantastic designer duds or 1920's-40's items that are so great that we do ask a heftier price, something we think would be easier if we had a global marketplace; and 3. It's a great tool to connect with other vintage sellers and customers - we're always happy to make new friends with fabulous style!
In our Etsy we'll be selling men's and women's clothing and accessories from the 1920's-1980's. As an intro, here's a few of our favorite items in the store right now!
(50's brown quilted circle skirt with heart print XS) (70's women's brown suede platforms with apple design sz 9)
(60's psychedelic Liberty of London silk scarf) (early 60's coral peplum wiggle dress with floral beaded design)
(40's tan and brown suit with peplum and killer collar) (60's plastic tortoise oversized geometric necklace and earrings)
(60's blue green and mustard plaid faux turban) (50's white leather clutch with bow and insane lining)
(40's coral striped silk nightgown with beautiful draping) (20's black silk and sheer dress with chenille flower details)
For all those in Lexington, we're afraid our Etsy items are not on the same property as our brick-and-mortar store, so you won't be able to try on items. You can always, however, request pick up at the store in order to avoid shipping charges!
We're so excited about this new direction we're taking, and we hope you are, too! If you ever have questions about items in the store, please don't hesitate to ask! We're here for you and happy to help in any way we can.
