Hi, I am Luisa and I have an online vintage clothing shop. I share my time between being a teacher and my shop, which means: a lot of work and challenges. I will be pleased to answer your questions. Ask Me Anything!
I had a sickness which stopped my entire life, when I couldn't do anything at all, just waiting to feel better. Well, This is the sad part of the story.
The good part starts when I begun hunting clothing when I started to recover and decided the name of my shop thanks to an old suitcase I have: I still didn't know a lot about how to run a shop and where to start from, but all I did really helped me to go through the bad moments while recovering. It started to be a challenge to get my mind busy and learning, which is something I always have loved. Now it's 5 years this happened and I am Living to improve my new job. I've learned quite a lot about vintage Clothing, online sales, photography, social media... And I am still learning and will be for a long time as I Think it's the only way to get better and doing a good job. I have a lot to learn yet, and I am working on It. I have an Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MaletaVintageClothes and an Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/maleta.vintage.clothes/ and I would like to get more exposure in the US and around the world, as I am from (and live in) Spain but ship worldwide and some of my customers are abroad.
I am more a collector or searcher than a fashion girl, but there's an intermediate point where this two sides of me get together: I appreciate the details in the garments and enjoy feeling the thrill if the hunt, and giving life to a garment in someone who will enjoy It anywhere, saving it from a sad end ( garbage, probably) and who will find her own style with this piece that is not going to be produced never more, and which has a personality that matches with her and lots of different details than nowadays clothing. I also like to know that this garment I sent somewhere will be a part of someone's life and we are contributing to taking care of our environment.
My biggest amount of sales go to US and my shop in Etsy is one year and a half old and as a new shop any opportunity exposure will be great. It would be helpful if you visited my Instagram account and if you like It and follow It will probably make able some visits from there.My Spanish followers are able to Talk to me and that's great for building confidence, which I honestly offer (see reviews). One of my best points is customer service, so I would like to let the world see more of it :-)
And that's my Story. Now it's time for your questions. So, AMA!
