Introducing… THE SURPRISE OF THE CENTURY!!! BROWN PAPER VINTAGE Co.!!!
I just had to do a dramatic intro. 😉
What is Brown Paper Vintage? Well, to put it bluntly, Charlotte and I just opened up a vintage pattern shop on Etsy.com! We were given a mother-load of patterns from some friends of ours, and since we didn’t have much use for THAT many patterns, we decided to share them with all the other lovely people in the world who enjoy vintage patterns as much as we do!
Marilynn J. is a woman who lived the prime of her life in the 60’s, getting married, starting a family, and of course, her pattern collection. She loved classic lines and shapes, though she also enjoyed the fun trends and colors of the era she lived in. She was a creative person, who enjoyed sewing, and through that avenue, creating her own personal style and fashion. Now we would like to share with you all those same patterns which Marilynn J. collected so many years ago.
The shop has actually been open for a few days, while we prepared for today’s grand opening, and just last night Charlotte and I got our first purchase! Yippee! I honestly can’t believe that we have been able to keep this a secret as long as we have, while we have been sorting out all the details!
We hope you all enjoy these patterns as much as we do! Be sure to stop by the shop, and peruse what items we have in store there. You just might find something to suit your fancy!
Next week we hope to put up a little video with more of an explanation about Brown Paper Vintage, The Marylinn J. collection, and our favorite items from the collection. SO be sure to stop by in a week’s time.
