It’s Official. I’m Giving Up Vintage!

Yup, it’s official. I’m giving up vintage for Lent. It’s been a whole week now & I’m already feeling the need to turn off the notifications from certain selling groups on Facebook & I even found myself trawling Etsy for handbags the other day & I NEVER find anything on Etsy ever! So what has…

Happy New Year from Suitcase HQ!
