east of east st. louis
and the wind is making speeches
and the rain sounds like a round of applause
vintage clothing. plaid. Gemütlichkeit. wool socks. christoph waltz. bbc radio 6. dorothy parker. scotland. cocktails. british sea power. ivy. tweed. very long reads. the scent of pipe tobacco. terriers. road trips. barbara stanwyck. fog.
not necessarily in that order.
When I am not obsessing about Christoph Waltz or trying to learn German, I earn my bread by selling vintage clothing (mostly out of my Etsy shop). Nothing delights a vintage clothing seller more than to get a photo of a happy customer wearing something they bought from you. Today, author and NPR contributor Amy Dickinson posted the above photo of herself (in her Small Earth Vintage dress!) and author Fannie Flagg on my shop’s Facebook page. How cool is that?
