As promised here is the second part of A Look At Indie Vintage. We had thunder and lightening storms the last 4 days so we didn't get out Wednesdays or Fridays post. We've decided to combine them into todays post instead. Again, thank you to all our contributors (writers and stores alike). We appreciate your time, effort and talent in helping us put out our blog. If you haven't been featured as yet, please do not despair, we frequently go back through our responses and revisit stores we haven't used before.


This delightful AnnaMae clutch in gold is the perfect accessory for a night on the town. A must have clutch by Jypsea. A few of us have a real passion for vintage hats and this vintage velvet one with veil is superb! Check it out at delicatecreations’ store on Etsy.
