Last day for the 20% off sale

Hey everyone, its nearly June (if you can believe that) and we're on the last day of the 20% off sale. I've got a ton of new items coming to the shop, this thursday thrift post is going to be huge. Lots from the 60s, 70s and 80s. I'm going to be listing lots of accessories this week, already hats and some purses in the shop. I've got lots more bags to come.
Here is a pre-preview, preview for you.

I'm extatic about whats coming. I hope you are too. I'm saving a few pieces (including the Lilli Ann) for autumn, but there are only 3 or 4 so this next couple weeks will be full of warm weather pieces.
I'd also like to mention that my hubs is purging his collection of vintage (and new) games and systems ebay. here are the pics and links, the auctions are only up for another 2 days so if you're interested please make a bid (or two).
oh, and this creation is in my etsy shop. Its an N64 modded into a Darth Vader TIE Fighter (and it is blowing up tumblr right now) Its my hub's first modded console, he's got more finished and in the works. He's going to make more and put them in his own shop. I think they're awesome and I've had nothing but positive feedback about it and he loves doing it...so its a win-win-win.
