March is here, and Spring is just around the corner- we have been adding tons of new listings perfect for Spring all week at Castaway Vintage! Finally we’ve acquired a somewhat professional indoor lighting system since our house is so dark surrounded by foliage, and our outdoor photo shoots were becoming less and less frequent with my boyfriend’s busy work schedule and preference for surfing on days off over taking pictures ( I don’t blame him)! So now we can finally get caught up with the 2 full rolling racks of vintage clothing taking over our spare room, and bring new listings pretty much daily to the site!!
Check out a few of our new Spring listings still available newly listed, though they are selling fast!

Got me all this for free! :
So maybe it’s not a lot, and nothing expensive, but dealing vintage clothing I don’t make a ton of money and spend so much time in thrift shops and vintage sales that I rarely buy anything ‘new’ for myself!
Last month when my boyfriend and I were leaving town for vacation, we needed to make a set of spare keys for someone to take care of the pets while we were away. The spot across the street from his job was closed the day we needed keys, so we stopped by this seedy little shop filled with junky cheap dollar store items for sale, but randomly had some purses in the corner, one of which was that lovely Dooney & Burke bag. It was only $15, and Ray thought it would be a great item for the Etsy shop- I told him “No Way! I love this bag- I’m keeping it”. It sat in my closet for a few weeks while were away, and once I started using it I usually just dumped my wallet and keys in the main compartment until one day I wanted to fit in some lipstick and tried to fit my keys into the tiny zippered compartment. Low and behold, I see and a $10 and $5 crumpled together as I ran to the car to pick up Ray from work. I was super excited about finding some money and just figured we got the bag for free, until we got to our destination and pulled it out to see a $100 and a $50 bill!!! I kept the $100, and gave Ray the $50 since he bought the bag for me. It’s been so long since I’ve had extra ‘play’ money- we had an amazing dinner out at Katsuya, and went for drinks at this really cool bar in Hollywood called Piano Bar, with the rest I went on a mini shopping spree for myself at H&M and Forever 21!
