I’m thrilled to announce our first Shop to Give Event to benefit The Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation!

What a busy summer this has been!  I’ve been busy stocking The Pursuing Vintage Shop (and keeping it stocked!).  Tons of new inventory – lot’s of pretties!  I know I’ve been neglecting The Blog – and I miss it!  I figured a way to jump-start my writing inspiration would be to give the site a […]
