Midweek Artist Interview and Giveaway! HelloAgainVintage

Here's a little midweek interview, giveaway, and discount code from vintage dealer Grace from Hello Again Vintage who has the cutest vintage clothes in her shop.  I could totally rock this emerald dress tomorrow for St. Patrick's Day :)

My faves:


 
Hey Grace! Welcome! Tell us a little bit about yourself and your wonderful vintage collection.
I have lived in New Jersey all my life. And I’ve always had a love for fashion. After graduating college in 2006 and getting caught in the economic slump, I started my own business, Hello Again Vintage. Since then, it’s been my priority and I love it.

Besides the vintage clothing and accessories you have in your Etsy store, what else do you like to do?

I recently learned to sew so lately have been working on reconstructing old, drab clothes.

What first drew you to vintage wares?
My parents were always pretty cheap so ever since I was little, going to garage sales, flea markets, and thrift stores became a weekend ritual. My very first find was a Vintage 1980’s Orphan Annie Doll – I loved her little red dress.

What inspires you?
A lot of my inspiration comes to me while browsing fashion/design blogs & magazines and from seeing others personal style. Here is my little collection of photos, videos, and quotes that keep me motivated.

What advice would you give to aspiring vintage artists and Etsy shop owners?
Buy and sell what you love. Because vintage clothing and accessories are not always perfect, you’ll have to follow your gut. After a while, you’ll get a feel of what’s sellable and what’s not.

Find Grace on her blog, Facebook page, and Twitter.


In addition to such inspiring words, Hello Again Vintage is hosting a giveaway here at A Girl and Her Scout! She will be giving away this Vintage 1980’s Flower Necklace.
