When I’m quiet, you know that I’ve gotten myself into something interesting. This week, I have several writing deadlines. But I’ve just been dying to share a great place with all of you, so I tore myself away from work.
and supporting American entrepreneurs are two of the most important things you can do to improve the economy. So when I go shopping, I try my best to do both. It’s so easy to do at Vintage Doylestown
, a great store in the town where I work.
Owner Debi Seltzer has some amazingly cute items. She constantly offers new merchandise. She attends auctions and estate sales weekly to refresh her inventory, so you’ll never see the same thing twice. I stopped in a few days ago, and spotted this amazing straw tote. I had to have it! The colors are perfect for my wardrobe transition from summer to fall .
I also found the perfect gift for my mom. She was having a bad week, so I thought I’d try to make her smile with a pair of earrings. Presents have a funny way of making people happy. The best part was, aside from being chic, they were very affordable.
What I really loved about my last trip to Vintage Doylstown was Debi’s amazing gift wrapping. She has a similar philosophy to me: reduce waste, support local businesses, and do it all stylishly. She uses old mismatched earrings to adorn the recycled, made in America boxes.
What a great idea! A re-purposed bow and reusable box. Doesn’t it make you want to buy a present for someone you love?
