My name is Juliet and my Etsy shop is Frock & Soul Vintage.
When did you start your Etsy shop?It opened Dec. 5th 2013 but I didn't officially post anything until Dec. 16th so I count that as the start.
What is the story behind your business name?I really like puns and names based off things so I took 'Rock 'n' Roll' and turned it into Frock & Soul. I pretty much live in dresses and there is something so poetic about the word 'soul'. I felt the word was also appropriate considering this is a venture I care a lot about.
What do you sell?I sell vintage clothing, right now just for women but I plan on selling menswear soon. I'd eventually like to sell some crafts as well. I make hair combs out of upcycled materials, I just don't want to bite off more than I can chew right now.
How did you get into your craft?I've been thrifting for many years now. It makes me happy for reasons I can't explain. The hunt is exciting and I can spend hours sorting through what others might consider junk. A lot of times I find pieces that are stunning but either don't fit me or aren't in a style/color I normally wear but would like to share with others. I had always thought it would be cool to open a shop online but never got around to actually putting my money where my mouth was. So I took the plunge.
Anything else you would like to share?Just a shout out to my mannequin Darlene, thanks for always staying trim. Hello to
