Short, stick in your head word or phrase for an vintage Etsy shop?
October 9, 2013 4:23 AM   Subscribe

I'm opening an etsy shop to sell vintage stuff I've collected and weird stuff I hope to find along the way. Names I liked like VintMint or Junk and Disorderly (which would have been great for a dwi: def worth it section) are taken. Any ideas happily appreciated.

Stuff I am starting with include records, jewelry, 70s stuff, and maybe some mid-century pottery, which people helped me solve the mystery of here. Maybe also things like slide rules and vintage clothes.

If you've curated it personally, you could emphasise that element. E.g.:

Items of Distinction, or Items of Distinction and Curiosity?

Vintagel - better if you're skewing Celtic/New-Agey/Arthurian or similar as resembles Vintangel at a glance
(Life's) Simple Treasures
Old's Cool - might have to tweak spelling

Bit more clothing-focussed:
Nuts For Rags - which isn't even a pun, just an expression I love
Some combination of (Shirts/Skirts) And (Rescue/Refuse)

If you prefer naked marketing to terrible punning then both What I Want and What You Want look available.
