My latest obsession

Since starting Happy Day Vintage I've changed "obsessions" like I change clothes. The problem is I love it all. Every retro/vintage piece seems to be an original and it all has a fantastic history. Not to mention it's quality like they don't make anymore. I could go on and on, but I'll spare you.
My latest obsession is Vintage Curtains. I am in love with the set I recently listed on my shop. They remind me of the curtains we had hanging in the living room of my childhood house. They scream Carol Brady.

Also, check out the latest treasury that Happy Day Vintage is featured on:

Thanks for reading my blog and have a Happy Day!

Front Page!

On April 3rd, 2009 Happy Day Vintage was featured on the FRONT PAGE of Etsy! Needless to say I am very excited about this. If you have a glass, raise it, and let me say, "Here's to many more front page listings on Etsy."
I would like to give a special "Thank you!" to Stacey Montgomery. Stacey is the Executive Buyer for Happy Day Vintage. It was her "Green as Grass American Tourister Suitcase with keys" (3rd row, first picture) that was put onto the front page. Check it out:
