Begin Again ~ Vintage * Handmade * Repurposed

I am so excited to share my new logo and Etsy shop! I have had Hollie Would Vintage open since 2009. When Jon and I moved and then our sweet Calvin came along, I had closed the shop for awhile to focus on those things :) Once I decided I would open it again I thought that it was time for a bit of a change. I have always been a crafter and have also been enjoying repurposing items in recent years. So what better place than my Etsy shop to start sharing those passions as well? 
Hollie Would Vintage wouldn't cut it anymore because I won't only be selling vintage (although that will still be a big part!). I thought about a name for a long time. I'm not sure why it took me so long to realize that the name of my blog would also make a great shop name! 

Begin Again - Vintage * Repurposed * Handmade
Begin Again works so well because so many of these items are being given new life and really 'beginning again'! And when they are bought by someone it is my wish that each item will be well loved and appreciate in their new homes. 
Another reason for the name change is because my sister and I have a dream to have our own small business together one day and a shop without MY name in it seems more fitting ;)

Below are photos of a few of the items that are currently for sale in the shop. 

Ferris Wheel Nursery Lamp

Vintage Home Decorating Books
Sweet Little Embroidered Pillows
There is more in the shop and I am working hard to add more each week. I am also really excited because I am almost ready to list some repurposed art I have been working on. This is something I have been thinking about for years and I am finally making it happen! It has to do with my love of vintage children's books. Here is a little sneak peak. 

I am super excited to share these and tell you more about them but am making sure they are 'just right' before I do! Thanks for following along :)
