Celebrate my Etsy's shop's 1st birthday with a 30% off storewide flash sale


My word, how time flies when you're selling vintage! Today I'm elated to celebrate the 1st birthday of my Etsy vintage shop with all of you, and what better way to mark such an milestone occasion than with a massive sale.

To mark Chronically Vintage on Etsy's first year of life, I'm holding a storewide 30% off flash sale that will run from today (May 6th) until Saturday May 9th.

This is going to be my only storewide sale of the season, so now is definitely the time to pick up that item (or two...or ten!) that you've been eyeing for a while, or to discover a new "can't live without it" treasure there.

Don't forget that I offer very low combined shipping rates on multiple items purchased at the same time and only charge true shipping. So if a shipping overage of $1.00 or more does happen to occur, I refund it to you right away after posting out your order.



Take Mable and Peggy's lead and rush over to shop Chronically Vintage's 30% off 1st anniversary sale today! And please don't be shy when it comes to sharing about this sale on social media. Just save the image above and pepper it across the web wherever you'd like!


This past year as an Etsy shop owner, on top of being a full-time vintage blogger, has been one of many exciting learning curves, honing my time management skills, awesome opportunities, newly forged friendships, support from many of my blog readers, and tons of experiences that I wouldn't have traded for the world.

While I wouldn't call myself a veteran Etsy seller yet, I'm not the newest kid on the block either any longer either and I love that fact. I know Etsy well now and have a very good sense of what it's like to earn a living there.

It takes, amongst other things, massive amounts of work, perseverance, dedication, great customer service skills, plenty of word of mouth coverage, an unwavering belief in yourself, and the ability to continually replenish your virtual shelves with awesome new finds that are apt to speak to a wide range of vintage adoring folks.

I truly want to thank each and every one of you who has helped to support my Etsy shop during its first year in so many different ways. It would not be where it is today for one red second were it not for all of you.

As we kick off its second fabulous year, I hope that you'll continue to shop my old school wares and be a part of making Chronically Vintage on Etsy an ever-greater success!

  1. Well, darn! I'm currently in the middle of challenging myself not to make any extraneous purchases for a month, so I'll have to miss your sale. But your brooches are lovely and I'll have to pick one or two up at full price later on. Happy Etsy birthday!

    1. That's very sweet of you, honey, thank you. I often have similar "no buy" months or whole seasons myself, so I fully understand. I look forward to having you as a customer anytime and will tuck in a surprise thank you gift with your order when you shop with me to help make up for the fact that you weren't able to do so during this sale.

      Many thanks again,
      ♥ Jessica

    1. Thank you so much, sweet CiCi! I so happy to have reached today. I swear, I feel more excited than if it was my own birthday. This is such an important milestone for any Etsy seller/ small business owner to reach and I can hardly believe that it has happened. I can hardly wait to see what year number two holds in store!

      Huge hugs,

    1. Thank you so very much! I hope, too. I'm not sure how many of blog readers know this, but my shop is a vital part of my income as a self-employed person and each sale is truly important to my livelihood. Plus, the more that sells, the more I can buy and keep bringing my customers an even wider array of awesome old school items.

      Big hugs!

  9. Congratulations. :) I couldn't resist, so you've just got an order from me. The green stretch dice bracelet called my name so loud that I could not pretend I didn't hear it. ;) Have a lovely day, dear. :O)

    1. Thank you very much, my darling friend. It's hard to believe that I'm into my 6th year of vintage blogging already. What an amazing journey it's been! I hope that my health and other circumstances will allow me to continue for many more years to come. There's so much I want to share here still and further opportunities that I know are waiting out there for me.

      Tons of gentle hugs to you as well,
      ♥ Jessica
