Hello and welcome to my new website www.ladysslippervintage.com. My name is Kellyann Yelle and this is my baby, formed in my mental womb and birthed onto these pages. I have been contemplating writing a blog for some time now not knowing what I would talk about. Do I just write about Vintage Fashions ? or do I write about being in the business of selling Vintage Fashions ? Neither one sounded completely right to me as my life if much fuller and more interesting than just these things. So I will be writing about these things in relation to living a very rural, country life , being a wife and business partner to the same man, raising a child in our store and taking my dog to work each day.I have been in the antiques and collectibles business for 26 years. This spring , as we started our 27th year of business, I have been reflecting on how this business has changed so much and how it takes so many more avenues to make a living at it than it used to. I have met many changes, through the years, with apprehension and uncertainty and look back to see they all have been necessary and overall good. This website and blog being a very big change for me.
I am sure in writing this blog I will touch on the many aspects of this business that I love like clothing, history, emotional attachments and the people I meet and their stories. I have been truly blessed with a life that has been made richer by them all. My husband, Mark, and I have so many stories of our years in business, people we have met, things we have bought and sold , barns and attics we have gone through and working side by side for all these years. Who knows what will come to these pages.
So I hope you will follow me and let me now what you think . Like us on Facebook at Ladys Slipper Vintage or Potato Barn Antiques and look for my next blog.
