Adieu 2012

As we prepare to say good bye to 2012, I thought it might be fun (for me at least) to take a quick look at some of the highlights...

We're so thankful for all of the milestones and successes we've had this year!  

Best of all were all of the many new friends and customers we met!

We hit over 2000 sales on Etsy and over 2600 Facebook fans.

We made the Top 10 list for Lulu's Vintage 2012 People's Choice Award for best online vintage store and Racked's Vintage 38 list of top online vintage sites.

Many of our items made their way into the wardrobe departments of movie and tv studios.
CBS's Vegas
Bomb Girls
Grace of Monaco (starring Nicole Kidman) 
Showtime's Masters of Sex
among others.

And, we were honored to have Taylor Swift appear on Fifi & Jules in one of our dresses.

  5. Love vintage clothing! Rohn Strong sent me here!

    Just because I can tell the difference, I wanted to point out that the dress labelled as a 'Rayon knit dress' is actually crochet. :)
