Just Vintage is a two person, small resale business.
That’s me and Ricky up there. I see so many Barbie Bloggers it’s always made me hesitate to put my picture out there, but here I am. No Barbie, no great beauty. Just me. Wanda. Not even a cute name. Sigh. No matter how much I wish, I don’t look good in layers of ruffled linen or mounds of jewelry. But ya know what? I like to have fun. I love to laugh and sometimes I’m the easiest thing to laugh at. Silly things happen to me and I flat out, unintentionally, do stoopid stuff. And I’m not shy about sharing it all. It’s OK. You can laugh at me, too.
Where is Just Vintage? Sylacauga in east central Alabama. Our claims to fame are Jim Nabors (Gomer Pyle) and the purest, whitest marble this side of Italy. Oh, and one of our home town girls was a Gold Digger on the Dean Martin Show.
What do I do? I buy and sell
junk wonderful, vintage items here in the blog shop, on Etsy as JustVintage2, and at Angel’s Antique Mall in Opelika, Alabama. I also love DIY craft projects and home decorating and helping you to learn to do whatever I’m doing!
My husband builds furniture and puts the most gorgeous finishes on his pieces! His work rivals any quality furniture store. His blog is Craft’s Wood Shop.
My family? Ricky, the man I married a month after I graduated high school in 1973, our cat Oreo, a son, Philip, his wife Lisa, their daughter, Sophie, dog Chelsea and cat, Rusty, our daughter, Erin and her husband Chris, their daughter, Dani, one dog, Ross and two cats, Boo and Suey. Why did our cat get first billing over the kids? Only because I was naming our household first. I promise!
I guess there’s not much more to say than that. We live a simple, uncomplicated life. But a busy one. There’s always something going on and occasionally, it’s blog worthy.
