We have officially opened another store on Etsy.com called GhostWardrobe. This store also sells vintage jewelry as well as a few housewares and odds and ends. It currently has no clothing in it but we plan on making a move sometime the end of this year. Currently we are just testing it out to see how it goes though there are some items ready for purchase.
The story behind the name, however, is that many vintage shops have similar names. Some hinting at the 50s or 60s, some are just “vintage” with another noun attatched. I have always, personally, found this pretty boring. I’ve always though boring names = boring clothes so I’ve always wanted a name that stood out and was meaningful to me. For those who collect antiques or wear vintage, we know all too well that the original owner of those beautiful items probably passed away long ago. Yet, even if they haven’t those clothes probably hung in their closets for full decades before finding their way to a new home. They hung in the closet like remnants of a past life, or ghosts.
This is what our future brick and mortar store will be named and maybe the name will scare some customers away and draw others in. I’ve always been a quirky cookie and as apart of me, my store will be too.
