Vintage Feature #2 - AuntiePrincess

Beautiful, intriguing- These are two words that come to mind as soon as I visit AuntiePrincess' shop. There are some many vintage items of all kinds. From clothing and purses to jewelry and home items. The Sweet Vintage Day Dress got my attention straight away. With its sky blue color it is quite lovely. AuntiePrincess' shop does feature one of the most unique vintage finds for me yet, an Armadillo purse. This purse features everything on the armadillo-tail, legs, and the head. You have to see this purse! Daisies are one my favorite flowers and when I saw the Daisy Chain necklace it was love at first sight. These three items are just a small sample of all the wonderful things featured.

So far, you've got to know a little about Auntie's shop, let's find out more about her.
Auntie has taken up a new craft and is thrilled to now offer a variety of ribbon cocardes. Cocardes are ribbon embellishments that were very popular in Victorian times through the 1920's and were used to embellish hats and clothing. Cocarde (also known as cockade) is French for cockscomb, it is a very appropriate name for these little beauties! Please check out the Clytemnestra's Cocarderie section of her shop for a variety of ribbon fancies!

In addition to http://AuntiePrincess.etsy.com, she also has a second shop http://lamplighter.etsy.com where she sells reproduction Victorian lampshades that she has made. Making them is her first love, selling vintage helps support that habit! These are two fabulous shops!
