Welcome everyone to our featured Etsy Seller of the Month series. This month, LunasLoot is our featured vintage Etsy seller of the month. We asked LunasLoot one question and her response made our hearts and souls flutter.
How did you get started selling vintage?
“I love stuff. I am an avid collector of so many different types of things. Plus, I have inherited a great deal. Vintage items are my favorite things to collect because they carry within them the energy and memories of all the people who owned, touched, handled, used or wore them. Each vintage piece is like an “energy” biography of all those who came before me. Someone else received a particular item I now own as a gift or bought it, loved it, hated it, used it, lost it or whatever. To me…there is a special reverence to all things vintage.
Because my collections have gotten a bit out of hand and I cannot nor will I ever be able to display them all, wear them all or use them all, so, I decided to sell them rather than keep them wrapped safely in a dark closet or drawer unused. I believe everything, animate and inanimate, has a purpose in this life and should be allowed to fulfill it. Storing things and keeping them from being enjoyed, cherished, and loved by others is wrong and selfish.”

Using the technique, Reed and Barton created two designs. The landscape design is on the front of the cuff bracelet while a pattern of orange clovers repeats on the sides.
