Perhaps the name is a spin on the oh-so-trendy “Let’s Make a Deal” game show that graced the small screen back in the ’70s, but I have to tell you Door Number 4 is one of my favorite shops on Etsy. Being that I’m on a serious Peacock kick, I found the most amazing 60s seed bead covered oversized peacock purse ever at Door No. 4 and it sealed the deal. I’m keeping an eye on this shop. No I won’t be giving up my precious bag anytime soon (see pic below), but I will say that there are lots of mod and retro trendy goods to be had behind those doors.
My latest aquisition:
As of today, some of the super cool retro chic things you’ll find behind the Door include:
Super chic ’80s butterfly sweater: $68
A pair of matching “Go Go Madness” sunglasses: $30
Or how about an Aquarium around your neck for inspiration? $46

Jessie, a good friend of mine who lives in San Francisco (the hub of all things cool) recently enlightened me to the coolness factor of zombies–and zombie movies and paraphenalia. Naturally, this set me on the course to find cool zombie crafted wares that had a vintage flare, and were just plain cool. Here’s what I uncovered:
Zombie wallet — (how many of your exes are listed on this little gem?) Created by Tinymeat, it’s a cool $14.
Zombie Attack belt buckle — Wear this with pride and scare your friends! Created by underthebigtop, it’s a brainy $20.
This one is a bit whack–Voodoo Toe Necklace. An unique spin on morbid, created by TorsoCorsoDesigns, you can have five more toes for a mere $56.
Zombie Hand Hair Barrettes — Creepy? Yes! Created by BulletsandBrains, you can put a whole new spin on accessorizing for a boney $5.99.
I Scream Tote – does it get any better than ice cream eating screaming zombies? Check out this great tote from ViciousEdge, priced at $40.
Zombie Heads on Fire — Scare your boss and coworkers with this zombie tie! Created by MixedSpecies, it can adorn your neck for $29.
By now it’s clear that I love vintage jewelry–but I also love the artistry behind reconstructing and reinventing new creations from vintage jewels. Here are my current favorites that I spotted recently. The best part? These are one of a kind treasures that you can get at the mall!
Pequitobun‘s mantra is “vintage reinvented” and they love to be creative–and it shows. Check out these vintage glam somewhat victorian grunge girl hippie chick creations.
Shakespeare in love ($99)
Punk rock princess ($129)
Save the last dance ($85)

Circle skirts of the 50s are not only fab, they’re practically art. There are all kinds of interesting ones out there to add to your wardrobe–particularly the ones I found below.
My favorite, which I found on ebay for sale by “Missaylee” is a vintage 40s or 50s outfit (with of course, the perfect circle skirt). It so amazing, it makes me want to wave a red flag and chase a matador!
No wait! This one from Bombshell Bettys comes with a matador! How lucky! It’s priced at $145.
Here’s a bold red and black statement from seller starnaudmo that says it all without saying a word!
This vintage handpainted beauty available from decogirl007 can be yours for a cool $59.99 (buy it now) for those who don’t desire to play the auction game.

Admittedly, when it comes to charm bracelets, my wallet has a tendency to fly open and my cash spontaneously disappears. But I always end up with some really cool jewels. Case in point. I went a little crazy shopping on etsy last night and found a new jewelry designer (Bendywho) who has some really amazing creations made with vintage and newer finds. I bought the two bracelets (below) from her and will probably be standing by the mailbox until they are sitting on my wrists.
Bendywho also has some other creations that anyone who appreciates one-of-a-kind jewelry will undoubtedly love. Check them out below or click here to visit her store. The picks below are a sampling of some of the new creations she’s added — charm bracelets, earrings and necklaces. Simply gorgeous!!!
Cardinal Rules Charm bracelet ($115)
Romantic Love Earrings ($124)
Honeydew Asian Necklace ($135)
