My store AND my kitty were on the front cover of a magazine

we were featured on the front cover of a local design magazine in April 2010 LIFE AT HOME. This is Jefffrey, My store kitty. I rescued him from the streets of Troy NY. He was just so lovable, and sadly, homeless. He is such a great store kitty. His title is "official greeter". When someone comes in, the is the first on to run to the door. His second title is "design assistant". As you can see from the picture, he loves chenille!! also, loves to help me sew and pick fabrics with customers. He has more friends than i do here at my new location 1609 union St Schenectady NY. I always make sure to have a little spot for him in the window, whether on a chair or one of my custom chenille footstools. He really adds a nice element to the window display. took me way too long to share him with the world. please do come visit him when you are in town. He would love to meet you....

Vintage Chic is now International

I have a new and thriving Etsy store. You can see it at . if you create anything, like i do, I would have to say - you should be here!!!! They have great search engines which help people all over the world find you, In my opinion, much more effective than a regular website!!!! I have had many more people find Me and My store through the Etsy site, Wayy more than through my website alone.
So one day i have a lady from Israel interested in buying the wall sconces. I gave her a shipping quote- $35.00 for a medium sized box, She decided, even with the higher shipping rate, That she just had to have them!!! So....voila- I am now officially an International company!!! However, this is not the first person to find me Internationally through Etsy-- I have heard from people in Germany, Spain, Canada , and I am sure it wont be the last time. I hope everyone has a great night, and be sure to visit my totally cute Etsy store......
