I have loved buying, photographing, listing, and finding amazing new owners for all the pieces I have encountered, but with the overwhelming success of Branchbound with Heartsy and the Chicago Cultural Center, as well as my day job's long hours, I can't devote the time to my vintage shop anymore when I'm not making the sales I am at Branchbound. It has taken top priority in my life for now. I still love vintage and will always have a place in my heart for it, but I think the past few months it has become more of a chore than an interest for me. I can always open another shop some day (who knows, maybe I'll list the occasional item at Branchbound?), but right now my focus needs to be on my other shop. I also plan on selling some of my unlisted items on consignment with Rachel of MouseVox Vintage, who is kind enough to work with me while I make this transition.
The part I'm sure you'll be happy about is I'm having a store closing sale through June 12th. Everything is already half off, so grab whatever you've been eying cos soon it will be gone.
Thank you for all the support you've given me and my vintage shop! I would have never have lasted this long without you all giving me the drive to continue.
