The HappyDashery Opens its Doors

At long freaking last, I have opened the doors to the HappyDashery Vintage Shop.

(Sound of the internets fleeing to a new! shopping! site!)

And for those of you who’ve stuck around…

Can you tell I’m mildly stuck on this name-everything-after-Dashiell thing? It’s so much easier than actually having to come up with unique names. And it’s working, so I’m going with it.
Opening a shop is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. And while I still want an actual bricks and mortar shop, this is a fun and much easier way to achieve it for now. Eight month olds and retail shops do not mix.
Anyway, I’m excited and scared and having a lot of fun. I even sold something!

There’s some fine tuning to do over there and new items are being added every day (it’s a slow process over there at etsy). It’s my goal to start with vintage and then work into a line of vintage supplies and amazing things made with such supplies. Things made in my imaginary studio of glory.

I’ve been dreaming lately about my imaginary studio and all the trimmings and I’m so happy to share that it’s nearly a reality. It’s a shared room (I can’t kick Neil out completely), but one whole half of it will have room for me. I’m all giddy just thinking about it! Once the walls are painted from drab gray and cranberry to an inspirational orange, I will be unstoppable.

So, in summary, if you like the vintage, retro, mid-century, eames era, kitsch, insert your own label here stuff, check in with my store regularly.

Also, if you want to help pay my mortgage, check in with my store regularly. I’ll see you there.

    Well hello, I found you from Etsy. I had to check out the new person who “hearted” me and then I wanted to see your blog. You sound like a kindred spirit so I’ll be checking back to see what you’re up to. Good luck with your shop!

    P.s. I understand about the Pyrex bowls. Totally!!

    FYI, I did not know my smiley would be transformed into a GIANT pixelated emoticon! Hello!

    Hmmm… though this could make my comments much more interesting, and annoying? Okay, I’ll spare you from another. I apologize, fellow commenters…
