Introducing Bitte Shön

I've been working on a top secret project for a while and am now ready to tell you all about it! I've opened an Etsy store!! 

Bitte Shön is my new shop for vintage goods of all sorts. Right now it's stocked with housewares, baby clothes, and books. I have a lot more goodies to add over the next few weeks. This winter, I'm hoping to add handmade quilts made by yours truly. 

I feel like this has been a long time coming and is something that I've been preparing to do for years. I've been treasure hunting/thrift store shopping for as long as I can remember---sometimes out of necessity and now out of the thrill of the hunt. It's a passion of mine and something that I'm thrilled to be sharing with you!

Here's what the best part. Everything that I've bought for the store, I love.
 Really.
Being able to pass these treasures on to someone else who's as excited to find them is an awesome thing. So, you won't find objects just for the pure fact that they are vintage. Everything in the Bitte Shön shop will be selected because I loved it. 

What's even more exciting is that from time to time, I'll have the help of my family in seeking out treasures for the store. My sister and mother are just as gung-ho about thrift store shopping as I am. With three of us shopping across the front range, we'll have a wide range of treats to bring to the shop. And, if everything goes according to plan, I'll have my mom's help in offering custom made I-Spy kids quilts soon.

I just want to say a public thank you to my husband, my sister, and my mom who have been my champions in following this little dream of mine. Their words of encouragement and support makes this all seem a lot less scary!

I'd love your help in getting the word out! Feel free to tell your vintage loving friends all about Bitte Shön!
