Sunny Day Vintage

 Hi, sweets.
I hope you enjoyed
There was an important message that I hope came across
and that is that to me, vintage chic style isn’t necessarily how something looks,
it’s the feeling that you get from it.
The photographs made my lil’ blog
look so pretty, too.
I’m happy to introduce the newest shop
in the Vintage Market.
Oh, her shop just makes me so happy to look through
and I’m thrilled that she found me.
Everyone has a story.
Here is Sunny’s…
My name is Sunny and I live in Chicago with my husband and our little dog. I have a degree in interior design, my husband is a designer and we both love old things.How did you get started with vintage?
It was a gradual appreciation for old things with soul. In college, I was all about contemporary design, but after we married, our taste evolved into a more traditional look. Some special pieces came to us from family over the years, which added to our respect for heirlooms. Our first Christmas, my husband bought me a huge antique mirror framed in quarter-sawn oak. He hid it under the bed!

How did you get started with Etsy?
I had been a casual Etsy buyer for a year or two. One day I was browsing and realized they had a vintage category. The proverbial light bulb went off! I’ve always been a collector and I love going to estate sales. I find so much great old stuff, I wanted a way to present it to others to enjoy.

What types of craft/art do you do?
I have a creative side, but it’s mostly focused on rearranging my friends’ rooms and helping them pick out paint colors.

What kind of vintage goods do you like?
I really try to keep my eyes open for quality items, especially new-old-stock, which is unused stuff you find in the original package. And I have a weakness for vintage barware, mid-century and milk glass.

What are your inspirations?
I just try to let my intuition guide me. Sometimes I’ll be at a sale, in a room packed with stuff and feel myself drawn to a box on the floor, and I’ll dig around in it and find something cool. I try to stay open to those moments.

Sunny has a disposition as sweet as her name, too.
Here are some of my favorite things in her shop…
Rainbow set of 1950s vintage paring knives, new old stock
  I adore the rainbow colors.
If you have ever used these paring knives then you probably know that nothing compares.
I have a $30 ceramic paring knife and a few of these.
I go to these every. single. time.
Is anyone with me on this?
 Vintage art-glass bird ashtrays, set of three
 Aren’t these precious?
They’d be great for
tacks, rubber bands, or paper clips
in an office or craft room.
Vintage Gemco periwinkle blue glass cruet & salt shaker set
I adore the vibrant blue color of these pieces.

    I am totally with you on those pairing knives. I came across mine on accident. The county fair was having a demonstration on them and everyone in the audience recievd one. I was there with my little sister and the demonstration lady couldn’t believe I was over 18. Made me show her id, in front of everyone, then after that little humiliation, it sat in my glove box compartment for months, until I realized it was there. Now after all of these years, just like you said…. it’s the one I {always} go to. :) Glad so many other people love theirs!
