Amanda of WayfaringMagnolia
1. Tell us a little about yourself and why you love vintage!
Well I am an avid history, music and art lover. My first love was music, I spent most of my years singing and playing different instruments both professionally and for fun. From a young age I became very interested in the history of different kinds of music and then stemmed my love of history and everything it encompasses. I remember watching old movies with my mom and just drooling over the costumes they wore and being in musical theater in high school I got to play vintage dress up often. I love vintage because of the history it represents to me, it is the material left overs from people and their stories of times gone by and I love to just think about the eras that the fabric has lived through. 

2. What's your favorite thing about selling on Etsy? 

I love the flexibility of my own schedule to do what I love, I love the creative spirit that runs through the Etsy community. 

1980's Gray and White Pumps
3. Do you have a favorite time period you shop for? If so, what is it and why do you love it? 
Hands down 1940s. I think it comes from the stories my grandparents told. Both of my grandfathers served in WWII and my grandmother would tell stories of going to dances with the sailors so I guess it is just a time period in which I've fell in love with the imagery of the culture that my grandparents described. 

4. Where would you like to see your shop in 3 years? 

I would love for it to be a full time job. Or at least a sustaining hobby in which I don't have to spend lots of time doing promotion. (I am the worst at it!)

1950's Embroidered Sundress
5. Are you on any Etsy teams? If yes, what do you like about them?
I am in quite a few. Many devoted to Vintage sellers and lovers as well as a couple for the Nashville area. I'm not the best about keeping current in the forums but I love to pop in from time to time. The Nashville groups are great because they put together a lot of craft nights and booths at craft fairs for all of us etsy sellers to be a part of. 

6. Do you have any funny stories that relate to selling or collecting vintage? 

I don't  know if I have many funny stories other than I've always been called grandma by some of my friends. But I guess that is bound to happen in college when you sometimes choose staying in to bake or read instead of another night at the bar. 

7. What's your favorite item in your shop right now?
I just sold my favorite one but this is my second fave

Yellow Square Polka Dots Ruffle Dress Coat
