I ♥ Vintage 25% off storewide sale underway in my Etsy shop


It's a well known fact that not everyone is utterly wild about Valentine's Day, but I think it's safe to say that the vast majority of my readers do absolutely adore vintage, so with that thought in mind, I've decided to honour our mutual love of all things old school this week by holding a 25% off storewide sale in my Etsy shop.

This sale begins today and will run until the end of the day (PST) on Friday February 19th. All items have already had their prices reduced by 25%, so there's no need for a coupon code or anything of that nature.




{Just some of the many heart/love/romance themed vintage items that are currently available in my Etsy shop, each of which - like everything there - is currently on sale for 25% until Feb. 19th. From top left to bottom right: 1950s gold plated sterling silver vintage oval locket with etched flower and heart design | 1950s pair of heart shaped reverse carved lucite scatter pins |C. 1950s chunky clear rhinestone and silver tone metal clip-on earrings | Mid-century vintage molded red plastic leaf flower necklace with silvery-gold tone metal | Mid-century clear rhinestone open design heart brooch | Antique brass and ruby red glass stone greenery and berry design brooch | Gorgeous 1950s coral salmon celluloid flower and cream faux pearl bracelet | 1950s AB coated plastic heart charm dangle necklace | C. 1940s filigre heart shaped earrings with blue rhinestones and cream faux pearls | Elegant c. 1950s sterling silver, marcasite and dark pink rhinestone heart and crown earrings | c. 1980s does 1940s/50s gold tone metal and clear rhinestone heart brooch | Beautiful vintage Truart Sterling silver 1940s military sweetheart brooch | 1950s Coro gold tone heart and flower brooch with blue rhinestone | C. 1960s rosary style beaded red glass bead necklace}

As chatted about in Februaries past over the years, I'm personally a big fan of Valentine's Day and anything that gives us a chance to focus on love.

This can be our affections towards friends, family, colleges, mentors, neighbors, members of our place of worship, people from our pasts or those who impact us right here and now. It can also apply every bit as much to our pets as well, and certainly even to our hobbies, interests, dreams and goals, too.

Love it not merely its romantic iteration, it can - and hopefully should - be something that we're fortunate enough to experience in a myriad of ways in our life, both on February 14th and the whole year through.

I definitely adore and appreciate each and every one of you, my sweet friends. Your love and support of my blog and Etsy shop alike are immeasurably important aspects of my life, and I will forever consider you, my awesome readers and customers, as the people that I'd most like to send a vintage Valentine's Day card to.

It isn't possible for me to actually do so on such a large scale, of course, but I can offer you my sincerest wishes for a fantastic Valentine's Day and treat you all to a fun 25% off sale in my Etsy shop.

Happiest Valentine's week and thank you in advance so very much to all those who shop this sale. I you guys!!!

  2. Ack, no, not in the month I've banned myself from anything but essential clothes/accessories/shoes spending! I was a bit over zealous with my credit card in January, it turns out... Hopefully no one else was as silly as me! I don't use Valentines as a reason to do anything particularly special myself, but I don't mind if it brings out the love and happiness for others :) x

    1. That's a beautiful way to look at this festive day, sweet CiCi. Tony and I tend to do romantic things and give one another presents "just because" throughout the year, so we don't usually go all out for Feb. 14th either (though, I think one year we should just for the fun of it - not this one though, far too many recent expenses on our end as well).

      Big hugs, many thanks for your lovely comment & tns of happy Valentine's wishes!

      ❤️ Jessica

  3. You have such a lovely etsy shop, I find myself window shopping quite often ;) I have mixed feelings about Valentine's Day, not because I hate love or am jaded. I think there is too much emphasis put on having a love interest rather than just celebrating the day of love. It's funny how St. Valentine became the symbol for love. ;)

    1. You're so sweet, thank you very much, Meagan. It genuinely warms my heart when folks tell me that they enjoy browsing through my Etsy shop.

      Isn't it though! I'm with you there totally and have tried to aim most of my Valentine's Day posts here over the years more in regards to love as a general concept and inherently important part of our lives in many ways, rather than on just the romantic side of the equation. That's great, of course, but it is just one facet of the bigger concept that is love.

      Many hugs & happy Valentine's wishes,
      ❤️ Jessica

  6. Oo what a treat! I can't wait to pop on over and spend some quiet time perusing your gorgeous shop. Love is such a wonderful thing, I can't tell you how glad I am to know you have such a loving family around you. It's so wonderful to love someone too. My beautiful firstborn turned sixteen today, and other than making me feel old, I have enjoyed looking back on the years I've had with him so far. I hope you have a wonderful valentines. Warmest wishes dear girl xx

    1. Happiest 16th birthday wishes to your son! Oh, what a marvelous age to reach and get to enjoy (with one foot in youth and the other striving towards adulthood). It almost makes my head spin to think that come this July, I will be exactly double that age. How time flies!

      Thank you for your heartwarming, beautiful comment and kind words about my shop.

      Huge hugs & joyful Valentine's wishes to your whole family!

      ❤️ Jessica

    2. I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day. We tend to not celebrate it in a huge way so we just had a lovely relaxing day together which was perfect!x

    3. How nice! That sounds a lot like our day as well. Low key, relaxing and fun.

      On to Easter next! :)

      Speaking of holidays, sweet Kate, I recently saw on Instagram that you shared a photo of some items you received that you weren't sure if they were your original 2015 VSS gift or not. Do you feel that they were? I just ask, because I have an Angel Santa in the wings for you, if your original present didn't show up, my dear friend, and really want to make sure you receive a present, if you haven't already.

      Oodles of hugs,
      ♥ Jessica

  12. Hello again, dear Jessica! I was “off”, travelling, and when back I swear I needed recovery from holidays! I loved your pictures and I loved the discount! So sweet beautiful things, I loved! I have not been such a good blogger or friend (purely because I had no energy for weeks, only doing some things - like saving energy for those things), so it touched me so much when I read your words towards friends and readers... you are just so amazing, Jessica! I hope you are fine!

    1. Hi sweet Denise, it's fantastic to hear from you again, my friend. Thank you for your lovely, kindhearted message. Things have been a three ring circus of activity, complete with my laptop (that scarcely two years old) completely dying last week and me, in turn, needing to quickly by a new one online, which hasn't arrived yet). I really appreciate you stopping by and for being the beautiful soul that you are.

      Many hugs & happy Valentine's Day wishes,
      ❤️ Jessica

  13. Personally, I've never understood V-day. I think that every day should be V-day, why only one day a year? But I do love all the heartshaped and red things popping up this time of year. Thank you for your kind words and for the code. DH is renovating my vintage car, so I know what I need to buy for the next months or so. But I do love my car, so if I want it functioning I have to invest in some spareparts. Have a lovely weekend, dear. :)

    1. Ideally, love should be present and celebrated each and every day of the year, I'm with you there completely. It is super fun though, as you said, to decorate with hearts, cupids and lots of pink and red items once a year though - plus the chocolate and other sweets aren't too shabby either! :)

      I fully understand. Cars are anything but inexpensive critters and I just love that you're working on renovating your vintage ride. I hope it's able to keep on bringing you joy and fun for many more years to come.

      Big hugs & joyful Valentine's Day wishes,
      ❤️ Jessica

    1. That is such a wonderfully kind thing for you to say, darling gal. Thank you very much! I treasure my readers and customers (many of whom are one in the same) and love offering them sales throughout the year. The next one will likely be in the spring, but I haven't hammered out the exact dates for it yet.

      Big hugs & happy second half of February wishes,
