Lucky Sparrow Vintage

Lucky Sparrow Vintage "Welcome to Luckysparrow Vintage auctions! I'm a textile obsessed gal living in the midwestern United States. I've been collecting vintage clothing, quilts and textiles since I was a teenager. Over the past couple of years, I've auctioned off part of my collection in order to pay for graduate school. I graduate in December with a degree in textile history, with a focus on historic clothing and quilts. Thanks to ebay, I've been able to pay my way through school without taking out any loans or having to get a part time job which is sort of amazing when I think about it!"

Mags Rags "I have been wearing, collecting, and hoarding vintage clothing since about 1970. Although we have sold on eBay, I now have my very own website up and running. Visit the website to Get Your Glad Rags at MagsRags!"
