I have recently emptied out the Caked Vintage Shop. Previously, I have implied, that I am trying to find where I want to be with the shop while creating a more cohesive package between it and the blog. I spent about a month just blogging away, letting the shop just sort of be, while I debated. Finally I came to the conclusion that I wanted to simplify the shop.
My problem is that when I am in search of wonderful new treasures for the shop I buy EVERYTHING! I do not have a set form of style and admire so many different avenues that I ending up hauling off more product than I;
A) Have space for.
B) Have time to style, photograph, and list.
I like having the items displayed on a real person but this requires much more work and preparation. I believe it is well worth it in the end, but when you have everything from sweaters to skirts it quickly becomes overwhelming.
I have decided to stick with packing the shop full of frocks. Focusing on giving each dress the proper attention it deserves ensuring it's best chance of finding a new home. Typically I would present the garments "as-is" (if there were any tiny boo-boos) while now I will be able to have the frocks repaired and altered. I have already begun the process while stocking up on all sorts of lovely new dresses for display. It's amazing to me how a little extra time, love, and just a hem can turn an out-of-date dress into a darling vintage frock.
I will be sure to keep everyone posted on the Caked Vintage shop re-opening!
