Westward Ho!

I’m sure many of you are pinners on Pinterest and have pinned many an item that you are longing to own off of Etsy, but it’s out of budget, or sold on Etsy, or just something you came across on the internet and are determined to own one day. Well, for me, one (of hundreds) of those items has finally come into my possession, this wonderful wagon train skirt…

I came across this wagon train skirt via Pinterest and quickly followed the Etsy link only to discover it had sold, and wasn’t even in my size if it wasn’t. Then Julie of FabGabs got her hands on one, and before you could say “Bob’s your uncle!” it was gone, sold to Sarah of Simply Vintage, in fact! Then just a week or so later, the lovely Lyndsie of Retro Rejuvenation shot me a text offering one she just found! So, while this skirt has been “mine” for a few months, it didn’t make its way into my pretty little hands until this last weekend when Lyndsie came to visit. And between that time and now, I found out that Solanah of Vixen Vintage purchased one, and I heard that Jessica of Chronically Vintage also has one! Isn’t this craziness!? I guess this was a popular skirt at the time and still is today!
