20% OFF SALE on all vintage goodies! 5/29 only

Thanks to all buyers and sellers who participate in VBO! Now, I'm in the process of offering everything I currently have in stock at my etsy store so I'm ready for a sale there as well. So, come and see what vintage goodies are up for grabs--I will take 20% OFF any purchase, any item in the store, tomorrow only: May 29 2009 from 12am CDT to 10pm CDT...get it while it lasts! Just wait to pay til I send you an email with corrected total. And, the usual combined shipping discounts will apply. (Buy more than two items and pay shipping only on heaviest plus discounted on second heaviest, the rest will ship free).


Heads up to other sellers who use Auctiva--the service will no longer be free starting next month, go check out the community boards there for more info!

VBO Sale starts in just a few hours!

Don't forget to go check it out. I have been listing for a couple of weeks to get items (some new, some relists) ready for the big sale. Remember, some sellers, but not all, will drop prices the last day of the sale--if it's something you really want though, don't take a chance because they're all buy it now items. Here's a link to the seller discussion of just a few preview items--

It officially starts tonight/Friday morning at 12:00 midnight PDT. Loads of cute 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s vintage dresses, lingerie, coats and jackets, pants, tops, and accessories as well as household items, linens and sewing patterns.

Most of the packages I ship out will include at least one freebie--I can't wait to get back to Etsy selling because that's very typical for me on that site and I have a TON of fabulous scarves, slips and odds and ends that like to find their way into outgoing packages :)

BIG Vintage Sale coming up--get ready!

Well, vinties, while I normally promote other selling sites more, our seasonal VBO sale is quickly approaching on eBay! Dozens of sellers will be featuring hundreds of items to move quickly. Here's the skinny for those of you not familiar:

1. Sale starts at midnight Pacific time--on this date it will begin 12am PDT May 22 and continue until May 26. Sellers will continue to add more items in the first couple of days, and some may drop the price on unsold items even more, so check back again later in the sale.

2. Find the items by searching for "VBO" in the title. Some items may say they're listed for 30 days--the sellers will just remove vbo from the title if it doesn't sell by sale end...grab it if you want it! The first day or so is historically the most competitive.

3. Items in the sale will be priced at $19.99 USD or less on a buy-it-now basis. Most items will be one of kind, so don't hesitate if you see something you love. Keep in mind, some sellers are pricing more aggressively than may see some items at close to regular price and some at a real blowout, most will be a great deal.

4. Almost every eBay vintage seller will be delighted to offer combined shipping (even if the other item(s) is not a VBO item) or accomodate some special request--just ask!

5. And finally, don't limit your search to the vintage clothing category--some items will also be listed in sewing, jewelry, housewares, etc. This sale is traditionally clothing but also offers other types of vintage items!

Feel free to contact me with any questions! Many of the items I personally have listed now will be converted to VBO items next week and I'll be adding more during the next week:
