Shop Owner: Marge Leyden
A little introduction: My shop is a labor of love. I enjoy collecting vintage clothing, accessories and jewelry and then passing on my treasures to someone else to love. The great thing about selling is that no matter what I find, it's the right size for one of my customers or future customers.
Favorite item in your shop? Vintage 1960s Mad Men Classic Navy Blue Dress & Coat Ensemble (http://www.rubyplaza.com/item/651063-7/Vintage-1960s-Mad-Men -Classic). It's a great outfit that's easy to accessorize and it has a great atomic lining in the coat.
What got you started selling online? I started selling online back in February of 1999, selling my daughters little matching holiday dresses to help defray the cost of the following years little matching holiday dresses.
I started reading up at that time about vintage clothing and I was hooked!
While I still occasionally sell modern clothing, for me it's all about vintage clothing and vintage sewing patterns.
