Best Vintage Gifts for Mother’s Day

I believe in trying to find the *perfect* gifts for the ones I love. I get a sense of satisfaction and excitement when I find something that just instantly screams a persons name to me.

I love vintage. I live vintage! I know that doesn’t mean everyone does, so don’t think I go around buying “old” things for every gift I give. That would make me probably a little bit of a weirdo. But since I love vintage, I totally enjoy receiving thoughtful, vintage gifts. And maybe someone in your life does, too. Like maybe your Mom!

So I’ve put together a little list of awesome cool vintage gifts for mom this year.  You’re welcome. ;)

Sisters in Vintage

My baby sister came to visit a couple of weeks ago and we spent an awesome week together thrifting, eating lots of Chipotle and watching cheesy rom-com movies. Basically, it was perfect! Here’s some shot of Jo modeling our finds. Some are listed in my Etsy shop Vintspiration, others in her shop Videre Vintage.

Customer Appreciation

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought I’d share my appreciation for my wonderful customers!

I always love seeing my customers in their purchases. It’s so satisfying to have found a great piece, prepped and photographed it, listed it for sale and then having it sell. But the icing on the cake is knowing that the item is being worn and loved. Here are a couple of photos from my recent customers who have purchased from Vintspiration.
