New to the Shop - Expansion of Our 1920s Slang Line

Last month we created some new items to continue the 1920s Slang themes beyond the note cards. We developed 8x10 prints of the four most popular phrases - The Bee's Knees, The Cat's Meow, Drunk Words and The Cat's Pajamas.

We also made a short run and tested coasters for our Drunk Words phrases image. The eight we had made sold out the first day, so we're in the process of finding a way to print/produce them economically and add them to our line up.  

We also made and added some body products like lip balm for the Bee's Knees and Cat's Meow phrases and bath bombs for the Bee's Knees, Cat's Meow and Cat's Pajamas. We haven't added these to the Etsy shop yet, but if you're interested in having some made up for you or a custom order, please send us an email at mandy@vintagebaublesnbits.biz

In addition to these items we're considering making posters of the top phrases, adding one more phrase if we can find the correct imagery for Hair of the Dog and we're considering adding buttons and pinbacks with images similar to what you see on the lip balms. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Are there products you'd like to see? Out of our new items what are you most likely to buy for yourself or friends/family? Comment below! 

Christmas in July at Vintage Baubles & Bits

It's that time of year! Christmas in July means I put everything in the shop, except home decor and my digital downloads, on SALE for 25% off for the month of July. This year's sale will start on July 1st and end July 29th. The sale will automatically be applied to any new listings this month as well and I have plans to add tons of new jewelry and clothing to the shop! 

It's a great time to buy and sent aside some gifts for Christmas to help with budgeting later in the year. My mom taught me young to shop sales all year long to take the pressure off of last minute buying at Christmas time! Click the image below to go to our Etsy shop and see the sale in action.

Our next show is one of our favorites, that's right, it's Vintage & Made Fair! We're headed up North to just outside of Des Moines, IA to the lovely Urbandale where the new home of VAMF is! This will be the first time the show has been at the new location, which is the Living History Farms

Not only does this show have amazing vendors, a top-notch organizing team and of course us, it also gives me time to visit my extended family! I love my twice-a-year trip up to beautiful Iowa and this weekend is looking hot, but lovely! 

Depending on the speed of the FedEx folks, I may be bringing some exciting new products to the show too! 

What to expect from us this time: 

  • Fresh vintage clothing goodies
  • Vintage fruit, veggie and herb prints 
  • An expansion of our 1920s Slang cards/new products
  • Awesome vintage jewelry
  • Fine Native American jewelry
  • Purses, purses, purses!

Vintage Items of the Week - Week of April 24th

So we only got a few shirts listed this week and a couple of them have already sold! But that isn't a very exciting post now is it? Instead of featuring the few items we listed, we're announcing a huge sale! For a few weeks we're going to run a 50% off Clearance Section in the shop. Right now there are over 80 pieces at half price! These include costume jewelry as well as sterling and gold pieces as well!

We have an opportunity to possibly purchase some new to us vintage sterling silver pieces and would love to make some room to be able to do so!

Here's a preview of some of the items in the Clearance Section right now:

Our next show is a late announcement, but should be a lot of fun! We'll be vending this weekend, Friday and Saturday, at the Weston Lions Club Antique Show. If you live in the KC area and have never been to Weston you need to rectify that! The town is a great day trip or weekend getaway. It's only an hour outside of Kansas City and it has wineries, a brewery, a goat dairy farm that serves killer ice cream and local made cheese, an awesome local bakery, great retail and it's almost all walkable!

Oh yeah, and this weekend there will be us special vendors in the Weston Tobacco Warehouse! We're worth the drive too! 

Vintage Items of the Week - Week of April 9th

So we were a bit slacking in getting new listings up as we prepared for Junkstock last week... We listed a whooping two new items, but we also had a fair amount of renews. 

Here are the two pairs of earrings that were listed:

You can find these in the earring section of the Etsy shop. 


We promise to get more out this week! We're hoping to focus on vintage purses and some more clothing. Have a happy Easter weekend everyone!
