VISIT THIS SHOP!!!

I do a lot of blog ads where I advertise for compensation. Well- this is NOT one of those posts. I have a good friend, Robin who has a sweet cousin Abbie. I really want y'all to go check out Abbie's online store especially if you or someone you know SEWS and wants to sew using one-of-a-kind fabrics. Abbie's store is called vintageprints.etsy.com. She has the cutest vintage fabrics! The fabrics she has available are much more unique than the ones you can get at JoAnns or another commercial fabric store. I have been telling Sei I want to learn to sew and once I learn how there are some cute, cute prints I would love to have from Abbie's store. I am digging this. I think it would make a super savvy dress!:
Not only does she have vintage fabrics, but she also has vintage sewing supplies, books and housewares from the 1940's to today. Usually to find things like this you have to scour thrift stores, etc... But Abbie has it all there at a one-stop shop!
Ok- this book I seriously grew up with. (I remember Harriet Tubman had a talking star friend. :) You can't just walk into Walmart and buy this book!

Anyway, Abbie has an awesome little shop with tons of cool vintage items. So, go check it out and see what vintage treasures you can find.
