Boutique Childrens Clothing studio

As we start to wrap up the year 2011 alls I can say is Boy oh boy what a year we have had here at Vintage Lucys! We had moved into a much needed larger studio this year located in las vegas nevada where we handmake all of the items you see on our website.

The majority of our items are shipped out worldwide as we supply many high end boutiques and we have managed to keep the boutique stockists growing each year with alot of hard work I might add. We are also thrilled with the photos our customers post on our fb page and send to us in emails with little notes of encouragement and how they absolutly love The Vintage Lucys Clothing line and I must say that is the best part of my job and I love you for sending those to me!

With the closing of this year we are excited about the year 2012 as we have so much planned for Vintage lucys and have had the chance to meet and work with some amazing people. We will have a few new people joining our team this year to make Vl run smoother and grow into the label that it truley is. We will have a head of marketing, a new Trunk Queen™ Coordinator and a new assistant that is going to revamp all of our technical things around here :) Again I would like to thank you all who follow my page and purchase items from my handmade line you are amazing.

I am bringing back a fun and exciting adventure this year... My trunk shows had been in hiatus but we are bringing them back due to demand! I am looking for permanant trunk hosts my {Trunk Queens} will be a hand selected few by me personally. I want a close knit intimate group of girls who love my line and want to promote it and grow with my company.
Vintage lucys is bursting at the seams with orders we are in boutiques worldwide which is a hard thing to do and keep with the {handmade} aspect which we will always do.
We are in a warehouse to make room for assistants with the line and what better way to grow {home trunk shows}.

Happy Halloween!

I must admit this is my favorite holiday besides christmas! It also holds a special place in my heart as this was my older brothers favorite holiday before he passed away...he would even decorate his car lol. We just moved so im not even unpacked all the way but I did manage to find time to decorate a tad bit and wanted to share with you {nothing special but fun} :)

I totally love halloween so feel free to post any of your pics on my facebook page...We did a cemetary in front of the house but the wind has managed to destroy it so when I get home today I will have to fix it all up before the trick or treaters come. Also did you know read below on the other halloween post as I am going to be doing a giveaway with halloween vl item pics :) Ok now off to sewing my new line I hope you all have a SPOOKTACULAR halloween :)

Behind the scenes peek

We Have continued to grow this year and opened a brand new warehouse/studio in Las Vegas Nevada where we will be holding open studio events really soon as we are working hard on having enough stock not to disappoint any travelers :) With growth comes some pains and boy have we had ours as this started out as a small handmade business and eventually grew into what it is today as I employee 2 full time assistants and continue to grow. We have had alot of trial and errors but have managed to tackle each one and will continue to do so as needed. Did you know that when I source out I not only try to get all supplies from usa based manufacturers but I also try and use mom and pop business which one day just might help our economy out. {fingers crossed} Ok ok no politics on here.

I would like to thank you for reading my blog and hopefully purchashing something from my line for you or your little ones as your continued support is a blessing and It enables me to do what I absolutly have loved since childhood and that is design {I always love to create and design} Stay tuned as I will be posting a new line the end of next week.

Boo-tique Fun

Ok I am back to the old blog again! We had awesome halloween sales this year and I am so thankful and excited on how my little company has grown and its so nice to see customers from when I started 10 years ago along with new customers as well :)I must admit my most favorite part of my job is seeing the pictures you all post to my page I mean that is the best thing to see and I want to reward you for it by doing a fun contest ;) Either send a picture or post to my face book page of your little one or {adults} in a Vintage lucys halloween item and then comment below that you did so and on November 8th I will do a drawing and the winner will get an awesome gift.

The ugly side of the boutique business!

REASON FOR THIS POST is because this company is publicly defaming us!

Lets just start a couple months ago on a beautiful sunny day in Los Angeles fabric district in Good old california! Me and my assistants went out fabric shopping for trims and fabrics and what ever else we could find in this crafters haven. We are on the look out for of course anything with a vintage feel to it and something that we could introduce in our line to go under our dresses as we have requests all the time for bottoms lol.

Well I found the perfect fabric its a ruffled poly nylon and comes in an array of colors and looks like what they used to make sunsuits out of when my mom was a little girl in the 40's and 50's and it is marketed and made to be used for swimsuits, lingerie and leggings per the manufacturer so duh of course I want it ....leggings of course we are shopping for bottoms and now I have scored and ordered thousands of dollars of this beautiful fabric and wait for delivery.

In the mean time I make a few posts about my find and what shall I make with it because I love my customers feedback and it was great. Well then comes the ugly a seller had contacted me a few days before telling me how she knows alot of girls that copy me are just jealous { i have all screenshots via etsy convos of this} I of course thank her for this comment and move on...little to my knowledge did I know she worked with ruffle fabric so about 3 days later I do another preview of the fabric on facebook and here she comes bombarding my page with comments refering my customers to purchase these pants anywhere except for vintage lucys yet when I confront her she tells me she is helping me out????? Are you serious helping me out you are trying to steal my business and then the emails...I YI YI the emails did not stop she went on a rampage about the ruffled fabric and how she must think she owns it and nobody can use it but here...well at least not vintage lucys in her eyes...but wait doesnt the manufacturer in los angeles market this as a legging fabric...why yes they do and I am going to continue to use them as this is a pretty universal fabric and pattern and I will not be bullied by her into not making them....she is now going around saying she is a victim of vintage lucys.

This post is just to let you know there is a very ugly side to this business especially if you are even a bit sucessful all the jealousy comes out and then the no talent that wants to take a ride on the coat tails of a successful shop and believe me thats another story but we have been harassed by 3 shops over a two year period that are all connected together and copy and try to put down our business.

Thankfully we have the most wonderful customers who support original handmade products and of course the terrible wait it can be to get the goodies and we fully understand that our customers are our success and we love ya. xoxo

My dresses are great because they are machine washable and dryer safe and can be worn for years with leggings as they grow. So come on over by clicking here and check out my sweet unique collection just for your little one! Picture above is from one of my sweet customers and friend Amy childers photography and her beautiful children.

Valentines day tshirts!

With Valentines day quickly approaching I have released a ton of valentine printed tshirts available at Vintage Lucys online store. One of my all time favorite photos that a customer sent me is taken in our classic pirate tshirt which is great for valentines day and everyday for that matter! I am also so honored that Jennifer {mother of these beautiful children} submitted this photo and it won to make a cover of a national magazine! You can get the pirate series right here.
