A New Year – A New You???

It’s that time of the year again when we review where we have come from and where we are going and how well we think we’ve been doing it all!  Sometimes that encourages us to make change in our lives.  What kinds of changes have you been pondering?  For some of us, it’s a new “style” so check out the new additions to the various vintage shop areas at Retromagination – are you a 20’s gal? 30’s gal? 40’s gal?  or are you boho/Haute Hippie chic?  Or is Mid Century Hollywood Glamour more your thing?  It’s so easy these days to switch back and forth between the decades and even centuries – anything goes!  Happy Shopping!  www.etsy.com/shop/Retromagination
