I have been collecting vintage clothing for over 25 years. I started Posies for Lulu Vintage by selling off my own collection. I have been selling on Etsy for over 8 years, and it is thrilling to own my own business doing what I love! I love traveling the world to find more and more amazing pieces for you!
I grew up in Los Angeles in the early 70s with my beautiful hippie mom. She was a seamstress for rock bands in Hollywood in the 60s. She made all of her own clothes and mine too! Those days of Flower Children and Rock 'n Rollers, bright colors and Indian tapestries always stuck with me and inspired my own fashion.
When I started collecting vintage, I was 18 and living in Los Angeles. I moved up near San Francisco, then Portland and Seattle, all of which in the 80s and 90s, were the prime cities to get the most beautiful and eclectic vintage pieces!
I love the styles, cuts and colors of clothing from different eras. I love wearing a one of a kind vintage piece, styling it with something modern, and making the look my own!
