Just a hem...

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  It's amazing to me how a little extra time, love, and just a hem can turn an out-of-date dress into a darling vintage frock.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!

  1. I think it will be great! I am contemplating (is that the right word?) opening my own etsy shop with jewelry and handstamped items but I just feel like it will be way too much because I have so many different ideas! So it won't open immediately, I have lots of decisions to make! xo

  2. I can't wait to see what goodies you will have! I'm so excited! I'm in the middle of re-vamping our shop too....You look cute in that dress :)


  3. Didn't know you had a shop. Bet everything's cute there. No wonder you have run out.
