so ivy cottage is a VAST consignment shop in wilmington nc - they've grown to fill three buildings and a huge warehouse. you have to be in the mood to be overwhelmed, but you can turn up some amazing finds.
which brings me to: eddie ross, et al. yal's glorious etsy offerings are a dime a dozen. they're a glimmer in the big haired, capri pant, gold jewelry wearing, this is "eck-pense-sive wedgewood!" tauting ladies's eyes who lord over the ivy cottage.
i'm sorry - i know i sound punchy. i do think there's value in finding pretty things for people. traffic being sent your way, hopefully. not hating, but possibly suggesting a dance off?
