sponsors : meet heather



Do you know Heather of 3 Ring Circus & Pippi Parade?

Sure you do! But for those of you don't, say hi to Heather! I recently contacted her for an interview and was thrilled she said yes! This fun loving vintage mama, sells kiddo clothing over at her etsy shop 3 ring circus. She also writes a kiddo style blog called pippi parade whereby her daughter pip styles in the cutest vintage fashion.

S - Tell us a bit about yourself?

H - Hi my name is Heather and I am a vintage loving, thrift store hunting, blythe doll collecting, mama of 3 (two boys age 10 & 7 and 1 little lady, age 4) and wife to the mister! I run an online vintage shop,
3 ring circus and take photos of my daughter dressed up in vintage and hand me downs over on pippi parade. and I talk about all sorts of nonsense and shop updates on my twitter account if you want to stop by and say hi!

S - Pippi Parade, your blog is one of the cutest kiddo style blogs out there! I always look forward to the Friday pictures of Penelope! Can you share with our readers a bit of background history around this. How it start? And if her personality reflect her style?

H - I started pippi parade when my daughters closet started over flowing with hand me downs and thrift store finds. I wanted a way to document the outfits and her style as a toddler. Mixing some of the vintage with the modern basics is a way to show that you can wear vintage without looking dated. Each outfit that Pip wears lets her kooky and sweet personality shine through. I just finished the 2nd year and have something new for year 3 that starts on Friday!

S - Your run an etsy shop called 3 Ring Circus? Can you tell us a bit about your shop & what inspired you to open a shop?

H - I started my shop shortly after I started pippi parade. I couldn’t stand the thought of leaving vintage clothing in the thrifts that didn’t fit my kids. When I was in college I sold women’s vintage. Etsy seemed like the perfect fit to get back into selling vintage and be with my kids. I try to keep a variety of decades and sizes in the shop.

S - Where do you find inspiration? What do you enjoy doing for fun in your free time?

H - When I have free time I love hanging out at the beach with my family, taking road trips to find hidden treasures and sewing.

S - Now a bit of random mix up to get to know you better. Think quick and only choose one...

organized or messy - MESSY
ice cream or cake - {CUP} CAKE
new or vintage - VINTAGE
favorite color - YELLOW
shoes or jewelry - SHOES

S - And last can you list your top 5 sites for inspiration - blogs, etsy shops, online stores, etc.
