Summer Update!!

Hey guys, sorry its been so long since our last entry, but here is an update on whats been going on here at LuAnne Vintage, also what's happening with us for the summer!

We've been hard at work in our 'warehouse' cleaning out and going through TONS of clothing. We've been finding lots of great stuff, as well as finding lots of things to donate to local churches and thrift stores.

I figure this is a good post to explain how LV came to be, so here is a brief history! LuAnne Vintage started from what used to be clothing in my late grandmother's antique store in Saratoga Springs, NY called Ye Olde Wishin' Shoppe. My grandparents eventually had to close the store and planned to open it at their house in Ballston Spa, NY. Unfortunately, my grandmother, June Petteys, passed away 2 years ago after a 7-year battle with breast cancer. In January 2009, my sister Cassie and I decided to start an online business in order to help get rid of the MASSIVE inventory my grandmother had collected over many years. My family is planning to open Ye Olde Wishin' Shoppe II in Ballston Spa this coming July, and we are continuing to help sell the inventory online at LuAnne Vintage as well.

Here are some photos of what we have been up to so far this summer:

Another important update!!!!

Due to the fact that I need to give in and a normal job for a little while, we will no longer have time to be adding as many new items to our store during the summer. We also have had to temporarily close our ebay store as well. We hope to re-open it again in the fall. Until then, you can still enjoy checking out the 145 items on sale now on ETSY!

peace & love,
