Vintage Thursday: Eye Catching


I came across some very eye catching vintage listings on Etsy. They drew me in right away. I love the vividness of the above picture. The orange VW Bug in the background is so bright! What a great photo. And the shop it's from, goulash, is filled with more!

I searched for "orange chair" in the vintage section of Etsy and found these. Again, the picture drew me in! The first picture that shows for the listing is the one below. From the shop graftonv.
Then more props were added to give the chairs such a cute story in other photos. I find it impressive the way people create stories out of items for sale in their Etsy shop.

I also came across the vintage shop TheGinghamOwl. I was searching for vintage vases and a listing caught my eye(first photo below). It is so cute, let me tell ya! Each listing has a little owl in it. Peeking out of things, standing near by, watching over, in things, etc. I realized that while clicking through, that each listing has an owl in it, all different owls. I don't think I yet have seen a shop where the name of their shop is incorporated into every listing that way. Here are some items:

Wow those are some fantastic photos, and I LOVE that dress! Whenever I go to the thrift store I have high hopes of spotting something like that, something etsy-ish, but I'm always disappointed. I'm starting to wonder if I see a lot of cool things but dismiss them as not cool just because they're not on a model with a cool backdrop and props? mebbe

i really appreciate it when a vendor goes out of their way to create a story and draw me in to their product photograph - it's almost as fun as actually buying stuff!
