Porcini mushrooms profume the markets and leather boots beckon you to shop windows…in short the summer has come and gone here in Florence.

Time for me to get cracking on my Etsy store Vintagefables!

The shop is fun even if it is seemingly a bit random. It is mostly a way to feed my weekly fix of market crawling, DIY creative project (fantasies) and vintage shop picking. And as much as I hate taking my number and waiting at the post I love sending out these little finds all over the world…it kind of keeps me going and feeling a little less lonely.

Vintage clothes and fabrics, old advertisements, postcards prints and papers, vintage jewelry and scarves, patterns, sewing items… a small taste of what’s to come!
