If you’ve noticed my blog posts have been a bit distracted lately that’s because I myself have been, to say the least, more than a bit distracted. For the past month I’ve been gathering fun pre-1990s housewares, decor, clothing, and accessories and I’m very happy to announce that my Etsy shop, Unrehearsed Kickline, is now open!

What’s in the store as of today is only about 1/4 of the inventory I’ve gathered so I’m still adding more every week. I had my first sale exactly one week after my shop opened and I absolutely ran around and squealed and made a fool of myself in celebration. It’s the small things, right? I expect that Unrehearsed Kickline (both online and in the other form I’m working on as well) will be a difficult venture. I’ve been working 15 hours per day on the Etsy shop, this blog, ebay, and setting up some things I can’t quite announce yet. Still, it falls into the “if you do a job you love you’ll never work a day in your life” category so although I’m tired I’m still as energized as when I started.
Okay, enough of my talk! Here are some things you can find in the Etsy store right now…
This milk glass Batman mug is from 1966 and is one of my favorite finds ever! I have a soft spot for Batman and the 1960s so I just think it’s the bee’s knees (plus, as the mug says on the bottom, it’s heat resistant).
I picked up this vintage brooch because it reminds me of something Joan from Mad Men would wear (and who doesn’t envy her wardrobe?). I looked up the style of the signature on the back and it’s from the 1950s, making it so far one of the oldest pieces I have in the shop. Also, how gorgeous are those colorful rhinestones?
You may remember that a while back I got a big stack of 1970s vintage teen magazines. Some of them were falling apart but the pages are in great condition so I’ve framed them and am selling them as a set. Cool, huh? In addition to these shampoo ads I also have a set of Pursettes ads and a set of 3m Hair Tape ads.
Here are some things I’ll be adding to the shop soon!
Isn’t this a beautiful brooch? It’s unsigned, but the portrait is printed on metal, which I’ve never encountered before.
I love a good cross stitch! I can’t wait to get this one for sale in the shop (cat not included, of course)
I’ll also be adding some prints to the shop soon, including this recreation of the “money is the root of all evil” embroidery from The Monkees’ pad. I’ve wanted a copy of it since I first saw the show so I kind of just made this for selfish decorative purposes and for other Monkees fans to enjoy.
So hooray for the Unrehearsed Kickline! Don’t forget to check out what I have for sale now and favorite/follow the shop to keep updated in the weeks to come.
