After last weekends trip to the desert to buy vintage fashion magazines was only moderately successful and full of deadly spiders, I figured there would be no further trips but I was wrong. Turns out after some help the family has located more magazines and has asked me to return this Saturday. Not wanting to pass up on 40’s Vogue I am heading there once more - wish me luck : )
Second trip to the desert or as we like to call it the “hoarder house”. So many black widow spiders! So many boxes! So dirty! We found 185 vintage fashion mags from the 40’s through the 80’s.
*can’t get clean* haha

Nervous & Excited -

So, tomorrow I head back to the desert to sort through 200 boxes of vintage fashion magazines. I am  hoping to bring home quite a few for the archive. This house looks like an episode of Hoarders so that’s where the nervousness comes in, you just never know what you’ll find good or bad. Everybody is  telling me that this is an opportunity of a life time and I agree but doubling the archive in less than a month is well in a word a bit overwhelming. The big issue is storage but I guess there are worse problems to have.  A couple of weeks ago I was able to bring home some amazing 20’s, 30’s & 50’s Vogue magazines but tomorrow we venture into the dark garage – fingers crossed that there are few critters and no scorpions. I look forward to showing you what I find – stay tuned : )
