I cannot believe it’s been a whole year since I opened Living La Vida Vintage! Last Thanksgiving I remember being so unsure of whether my stuff would sell, whether I’d be able to keep up with fulfilling orders (especially since I’d just found out I was pregnant!), and whether the stress of the whole thing would send me into a nutella-guzzling frenzy. I seriously just giggled looking back at my first two posts about it–you can check them out here and here. All that worry was for nothing! I set up shop last year on the Monday after Thanksgiving with a grand total of 12 items. This year I made it my goal to have everything ready by the big T-day itself and as of this writing I have thirty-seven listings, including a couple of things handmade by yours truly! I’m branching out, haha.
Nothing is more than twenty-five dollars and everything is something I would put in my own home. I couldn’t be prouder of the little business I’ve built. Y’all have been so supportive of me over this last year (as have my friends and family), and I want to do something special to thank you. I wish I could reach out and give each and every one of you a big smooch. But since I can’t, I’m offering a special coupon code for folks who read my blog or are friends with me on facebook. Just enter the code HEYDONTIKNOWYOU at checkout for 15% off. You can’t combine it with other coupon codes (that’s etsy’s rule, not mine), so if you’re local to the Baton Rouge area and would like to arrange pickup or delivery within BR city limits let me know and I’ll refund your shipping costs (or convo me in advance and I’ll just make the listing have free shipping for ya).
I plan to keep adding more items throughout the holiday season, so if you don’t see anything that strikes your fancy today be sure to check back periodically. The discount for blog readers runs through the end of time. Thank y’all so much for all of your words of encouragement (and purchases!) over this last year. I really don’t think I would be nearly as successful without y’all. =)
