Featured Team Member The Vintage Dresser

The Vintage Dresser is a mother and daughter run Etsy shop and a member of the Eastern Washington Etsy Street Team. We are located in different cities about 30 minutes apart.

My mom, Nancy is located in Prosser and I, Tania am located in Pasco. We get together almost every weekend to hit the garage and estate sales, thrift and antique stores, and sometimes out of town swap meets and flea markets, which is where we find many of our vintage treasures that we offer in our shop as well as some of the “trash” that we transform into treasures!

We both have many interests when it comes to arts and crafts. We enjoy altered art and altered books, decorative tole painting, sewing dolls and teddy bears, and scrapbooking.

For several years we had participated in a local craft bazaar and held our own bazaar at my house. While that was fun for both of us, the amount of time and energy it took to do these events just didn’t seem worth while. So, we decided to open up an online store to sell our wares. We started with eBay and then later opened our Etsy shop. Both shops are going pretty good and we are gaining loyal customers as time goes on!
Tania and Nancy's shop is one of the most eclectic shops I have seen on Etsy and is definately worth checking out. I had a hard time deciding what to feature here, but I think this gives you a little taste of their talent and eye for vintage finds. I love the sentiment on this card. Some other ways to check them out are their blog, their webshots photos, and their ebay store.
