Today, in our series of wonder women, the spot light is on Roxanne, owner of the vintage shop EarlyAttic.
We are in awe of all that Roxanne accomplishes. She lives in a small town in Illinois, where she and her husband own a horticulture business. Roxanne does all the office work for the business and helps in the field, yes sir, no problem.
Besides that, by shear power of will, she has got her husband through a very serious illness and takes care of her very old and ailing father.
Besides all that she sources the most tantalizing vintage stuff in estate sales, garage and barn sales and what not, which she lists in her Etsy shop at the crack of dawn.
In short, she is the kind of hard working, no nonsense woman, that makes the world a better place.
She alone is responsible for the obscene amount of antique lace, trims, buttons, fabric and such that we have. Her prices are too good to pass and the stock is always fresh.
She is such a good friend that she buys for us stuff of those stone age sellers that refuse to ship abroad and consolidates the shipping for us. She makes us smile regularly with her very dry humor and self spot.
So, people, I am sharing with you today my very favorite adress for vintage notions, because I'm cool like that. Visit her shop and buy with abandon, she has the best stuff and the best customer service, only stay away from any flocked gingham when you see it, otherwise I will have to haunt you and we don't want that, do we?
