January 10 - 17, It's the VMTeam White Sale on Etsy
The Vintage Market Team's white sale runs Sunday, January 10 through Sunday, January 17th. That's a whole week of deals from VMTeam sellers. Try a search (go to Etsy and type in vmteamwhitesale) and see: this is way more than bedsheets, folks. It's handknitted vintage afghans in vivid, blazing, zigzags.
Expressing our inner vintage with a modern twist, we came up with our own version of a white sale: lots of sweet linens, laces, curtains and the like, absolutely. But also all sorts of artifacts of the domestic and retro-influenced: aprons, teapots, dishes, teasets, lots of marvelous milk glass.
And more milk glass.
And since some of us are strictly vintage clothiers, there are sweet white nightgowns.
And white skirts, white jackets, white poet blouses.
White frilly dresses.
White hats. White gloves. Even white (and silver) shoes.
But if that, then why not white figurines, white this's and thats, white deer?
And we have to include white jewelry, like a graphic "1980s bracelet.
It's dewhiteful. And it's all good. And it's all vintage.
