Songs to an Empty Room

Hello darlings. 
We'll be taking a bit of a blog breather. In recovery mode of bugs, and burn out. 

So no link-up this week. Or the next. 

Feel free to check in and take a peep at the goods available on eBay and in the Etsy shop
Summer's nearly here and daily, we'll be listing our favorite finds

And the Bride Wore #VINTAGE: a beautiful vintage 1950s hat lovingly made then and on sale now.
Will be back to bloggy business in time for Judith's Hat Attack, July 1st. 
See you on the flip slide.

SECONDHAND FIRST™: Chrome Comes to Seattle

The arrival of Chrome Industries to Seattle seems so natural. I couldn't think of a better fit for this mobile, eco-conscious and active city than the products that Chrome provides. You've probably seen their signature item around town: the ubiquitous messenger bag with the cool seatbelt strap? Yup, that's Chrome. 

When I was telling the boyfriend about my plans to attend a press event at the Chrome HUB in downtown Seattle, about how cool their messenger bags looked online, he simply pulled out HIS well-worn bag and showed it to me. It's a nearly six year old Chrome messenger bag. He loves their products. And after checking out their new downtown digs, I think I do too.

Outfit Post: Visible in Velvet

Sometimes, all you need to feel remarkable, is a singular stand-out piece. And this vintage velvet coat was just the ticket.

When they say "they don't make 'em like they used to," those "theys" just may have been talking about this jacket. It is, quite simply, a quiet beauty.
