Tell me about how you originally got interested in vintage goods, misty.
I'm not sure how it began. It goes so far back I can't remember. I know I never wanted to look the same as other kids, never wanted to shop in the mall. My mother would beg of me to please do my school clothes shopping any place other than the goodwill, but of course I refused! I remember once in high school a boy in class asking me... "so are actually TRYING not to match" my answer of course was just a stern "yes" with a cocky smile!

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
Being with my family for sure. My husband and I really only get the daylight together on the weekends, so I really enjoy seeing him be a father to my son...(an amazing one at that) in the sunshine. Watching them play together when they don't know I'm looking is probably my favorite thing ever.

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
Juggling running it alone with a toddler FOR CERTAIN without doubt is the hardest part. My son Noah is 15 months old and loves to climb and is in constant need of attention. Being a mother is my # one concern and a wife my second... business defiantly comes in third...I also am an artist and am trying to take on some pin up photography as well... so you can say I'm a busy lady... to say the least..

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
Hmn thats a tough one, I tend to keep the items I REALLY want, but i guess the red leather bag with fringe is most my style.

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I honestly always knew i would be an artist.

What other shops or artists out there do you love?




What does your future hold?
Another baby, a long happy marriage and a ton of success!
