Pussycat Vintage was born out of our friendship and the thrill of finding unique vintage treasures. We started our shop a year ago (just for fun) and it has grown more than we could have imagined. We now have a blog, twitter, facebook and flickr so you can keep up with all of our latest shop and event updates.
Pussycat Vintage offers a little bit of everything. We have clothing for men, women and kiddos. We also have a wide range of housewares-everything from the living room and kitchen to the perfect vintage cake topper.
Lindsay - My tastes tend to be pretty eclectic, so I find inspiration all over the place. I love old movies, design books, vintage sewing patterns and cookbooks, music and blogs, of course! My husband is also a huge inspiration to me in a number of ways. He has taught me to never compromise when it comes to pursuing your dreams. In addition, he is an awesome chef, so he is constantly inspiring me in the kitchen. Most of my free time is spent in the kitchen with my family, sewing, reading a good book or daydreaming about our future restaurant.
Nicole - I find inspiration through every day life as cliche as that may sound. It's true. I see it in my Nana, the park, other blogs, etsy shops, Logan, technology, homes, walks. I think that inspiration is everywhere, you just have to be open to it. Sometimes it's good not to be completely focused. When I'm not working my full time job or on the shop/blog I spend as much time as possible with my amazing son Logan and boyfriend Gray in our little home. I try to be outside as much as possible, read, work in my garden, go for bike rides and work out.
