As you've probably already heard, Jessica (of the blog/etsy shop Chronically Vintage) suffered a tragic house fire last month and lost all of her belongings, including an extensive vintage collection. As she and her husband rebuild their life and get back on their feet, my friend Gina (Beauty from Ashes) had the wonderful idea of organizing a vintage pattern sale for a fundraiser!
Gina has generously donated 30 vintage sewing patterns in all sizes and eras and 100% of the proceeds from their sale will go to Jessica and Tony. Look for these patterns in the "Fundraiser for Jessica" section! Joining in, I am taking the opportunity to donate 25% of all proceeds from my entire shop (ModeDeLis), as well as my second Etsy shop (SewingEmporiumCo) from now through Nov 16th! This is a great chance to not only get vintage treasures, but to help out a friend in need!
Jessica has been one of (if not the most!) supportive and welcoming members of the vintage blogging community and I've been touched again and again by her generosity and kindness- she has given so much to this community! I know many of you have already donated directly to her donation site and if you were looking for another way to help (and cross off a few Christmas gifts!), this is perfect for killing two birds with one stone!
A sampling of some items currently in the ModeDeLis shop- vintage patterns pre-1965, magazines from the 1920s, Lu-Ray dishes, vintage scarves, and more!
And a sampling of the offerings over at SewingEmporiumCo- vintage patterns post-1965, retro reprint patterns, costume patterns, and vintage trimmings!
Happy shopping, and thanks for supporting Jessica!
