Introducing...Street Scene's Etsy!


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 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!

1950's Brown Handmade Midi Quilted Circle Skirt with Heart Design in Red Yellow Blue and White XSmall   1970's Funky Lace-Up Suede Sculpted Wedge Heels with Apple Design size 9

Vintage Psychedelic Graphic Abstract Silk Liberty of London Paisley Print Scarf in Purple, Pink, Orange and Green   1950's Coral Salmon Pink Pastel Wiggle Dress with Peplum, Beaded and Sequined in Floral Design in Purple Green and Yellow with Pockets

Incredible Women's 1940's Tan and Brown Suit with Oversized Collar Abstract Detail Shoulder Pads and Peplum Waist                   1960's Mod Plastic Tortoise Oversized Chunky Link Demi Parure Set Necklace and Pierced Dangly Hoop Earrings 

1960's Blue Mustard Yellow and Green Plaid Knotted Wool Turban Hat           1950's Simple and Elegant White Leather Long Clutch with Bow and Bright Striped Silk Lining

We currently only have 67 items in the store, but are hoping to double (and then some) that number within the next month. We add new items to the store every day Mon-Fri and will have a blog post each week updating you on new items that you'll drool over ;)  We have a link on the side of our page that can take you to our Etsy anytime, or join Etsy and "like" us and join our circle! Either way, keep checking in the shop - there's always something new!

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.

Happy shopping!

P.S. If you're new to Etsy or online shopping, Kate posted a great beginner's list for shopping vintage online a while ago (read it here).
