Get your freak on. <3

I mean you, awesome rifle necklace. And you too, sweet art deco pendant. I guess I never really told you how much I adored you. How I would walk into the room and glance at you and somehow it made me feel better. Just knowing you were there.
Remember that one time I wore you around a little bit? Pretending we had a life together. Secretly wishing we did. Making tiny calculations in my mind about when we could meet again. Remember all that? (Sigh).
Well, I guess it’s too late. Maybe you got sick of waiting around for little ole me. I understand. What did I expect – that you’d just hang out forever? (I did hope that, actually)…
Your new life must be a good one. Because you were quite a treasure. Maybe next time, I’ll get my s*** together and nut up and buy you when I have the chance.
I will. Next time, I will.
Imagine my surprise when I come in to work after a few days off to see the store sprinkled with these adorable ceramic friends! I’m not sure what their story is, but I have become a tad smitten with a few of them. They are all well loved and worn and come jam packed with a vintage-y goodness. Ranging in price from $10 to $15, there is no reason to not take one of them home today. I would be sad- yes, but who am I to stand in the way of true love…
There’s the adorable Dutch couple. I like to call them Gottfried & Wilhelmina the little farm couple.
The more mature couple in the mix are Rutger & Maartje
Whichever of these little gems that catches your eye, don’t sleep on it- take them home and find them a perfect spot to live the rest of their days happily with you!
Do you ever feel like your lacking balance? Too much yin not enough yang? Do you find yourself asking, “How can I get to that zen place?”
I find myself asking that too.
BUT, I also found some interesting flash drives in the store that totally encompass the old and the new…the yin and the yang.
Duality. ya heard?
Think about it… flash drives and USB ports definitely lead to enlightenment.
Well, maybe that’s a stretch.
At the very least, these products combine vintage/antique and modern/chic to compliment any techie with style.
Yesterday, I was replacing some window decorations with giant, red, glittering hearts, when a Serge Gaisbourg song started playing. –video below.
The video features Serge driving a Rolls Royce and Jane Birkin getting hit by it while riding a bicycle. This song and video are the first in a series that go on to tell the love story between a middle-aged man and a much younger, Lolita-esque girl.
In fact, Serge’s video and song demonstrate one thing really well (no, not an illicit affair): Strange Love. Just go with it…
Why else would we, at Spitfire Girl, have a donkey head on the body of a man, surrounded by hearts in our front window??
Think about it… some of the best romances of all time are really, really strange.
Love is elusive, twisted, and, above all….drumroll…. love is weird.
Don’t try and pretend that it’s not, just look at the things we have in the store especially for Valentine’s Day!
Did you spend all of your holiday cash already? … Or did you manage to break even after buying everyone else a present?
I know that this is the case for myself and many others, so let me propose a New Years resolution/initiative:
With bank fees, account minimums, and weird ATM charges (for no reason), we are all throwing money away. That’s why we should take a step back and maybe take a page from your depression-era grandparent, who kept all their money in a tin, under the mattress.
Spitfire Girl can help you do this…no need to hide a tin under the bed, though. We have all kinds of home banking systems!!!
So… Spend a little money to be able to save SOO much and make 2012 the year of financial prosperity!
Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
But the day after Christmas, I opened the store and to my surprise there were creatures galore!
The animals are celebrating the holidays and starting to gear up for New Years…
A mouse was reading a trixie deer’s tarot cards.
Monkeys asking directions from a crow king.
Two deer playing in the woods.
And last but not least… a mouse and a jackalope discussing politics.
If there’s one thing that’s clear, it’s that we here at Spitfire Girl will be celebrating right on through the New Year! Come on in, hang out, look around and get yourself or someone else something super cool and shmancy to kick off the New Year!!!
Who knows, maybe a mouse will read your tarot…
I don’t know if you are arware, but we are opening a new retail store in Los Feliz, Los Angeles. Exciting to say the least. And One thing I will tell you there is quite a big window. So now I’m putting my thinking cap on> Need a super, fabulous, creative window display to attract the fabulous customers!!! Any ideas wonderful people?
Heres what I found surfing the net. Pretty awesome….Let’s start with the best one. Why not.
Watched by onlookers, American beauty pageant winner and later actress Mary Jane Hayes (1930 – 1977), Miss Washington of 1949, lies in a bed in a storefront window as she pretends to sleep, Washington DC, 1950. The window display was sponsored by Washington Educational Services as a way to promote a ‘learn while you sleep’ program, in this case speakers broadcast French lessons at Hayes. She later changed her first name to Allison and appeared in a number of films, notably as the title character in ‘Attack of the 50-ft. Woman.’
I can’t believe how cool this is . I would love to do something like this in our store. So creative!!!
So Now with all my research, I’m so confused what to do? I’ll keep you posted when I decide.
