Random Hearts... We heart you ebay! even after all these years




We have heard it all before... Yeah "eBay was great when it was new and their were not soooo many people after what you are after.... " I loved eBay when things were super cheap and people didn't know how desirable vintage was." "I always get outbid, so I don't even bother going to eBay anymore".... 


Well, listen up people... We still heart eBay very, very much! 
We are still amazed that we can type in some random item and the eBay search engine will bring us endless options of this item to choose from! 

We love that we don't have to spend hours and hours on end searching the racks dusty, stinky thrift-stores to find that perfect 1970's dress. Not that we don't LOVE a good vintage thrift-store shopping day, but we don't always have the time to commit to those fun days. 

We heart that when we saw our friends 3 year old daughter's vintage Fisher Price record player, we didn't have to just envy.... We could copy and buy one for our little guy. (You can call Miss Me a Copy-Cat, I wear that label with pride, if you are cute... I WILL copy)   

So, for todays random heart we bring you some of the amazing and fun things we are hearting right now on eBay! 

Please feel free to purchase these fabulous finds, you know you want to. 


First up... These stupidly amazing 1980's dove grey suede slouch-boots. 
Seriously. 



These size 7.5 boots have such a great vintage vibe, but are also very current you would look great in these, black tights a vintage slip-skirt, loose tank and a cardi!!

We have told you before about our crush on all things tuxedo inspired, well feast your eyes on this adorable little cropped tux jacket, complete with tails!!

Such a cheerful color! Love the gold buckle detail, 

Love that it is vintage Gucci (And obviously we can't guarantee that this is real, we never saw it in real life) 
Love that it is vintage Gucci but not splattered with logos. 
So cute and subtle.
