Promote YOUR Business!



Do you have a small business selling retro, vintage or antiques? Are you a struggling artist? Then promote your business here!

I will post a link at the side of my blog, encouraging people to browse and shop from other bloggers. This is your chance to toot your own horn and advertise your own business... And it's 100% free!!

It is NOT limited to vintage only, artists and craftspeople are greatly encouraged as well.



The Rules:

If you own an online shop or run auctions from places like eBay, etsy or your own website, or if you have a brick and mortar store, or both, feel free to post a link and a brief description of what you sell. Include any other info such as an address if you own a store. Don't forget to mention the country your store is in too!!

You should have some sort of blog, or be a blog reader, however, if your ad/website is a professionally run "chain store" business, drop shipper, distributor or an ad for viagra, it will not be approved. This is to help the small business people in the blogsphere.

It should be related to retro, vintage or antiques, direct from the artist or handmade things. BUT I will consider just about any small business as long as you run it.

That's it!


Post up your info, and come back to browse other shops. I hope this helps everyone!

***Disclaimer***

Please shop responsibly. Good vibes only. =)

  3. I'm Dana from the Mid2Mod blog. We recently opened a brick and mortar store, also called Mid2Mod, at 830 Exposition Avenue, Ste. 103, Dallas, TX. We mainly sell mid-century modern furniture and accessories, but if we find something really cool from before or after that period, we offer it too. Check out our inventory at mid2mod.com

    And thanks for such a great idea! I look forward to checking out other businesses.

  15. Hi, I'm Gail from Oregon and I read your blog religiously!I adore mid century stuff tho I don't own much.
    I keep meaning to start a blog, but never have gotten around to it, but I love reading everyones thrifting adventures.
    I use vintage and recycled jewelry to make new creations out of it,mostly necklaces and earrings.
    I also do steampunk stuff, and my prices are really reasonable.People tell me TOO reasonable, but I try and pass the savings onto customers when I get stuff cheap.
    I also use seashells to cover various things, like litle boxes and mirrors( pics on request).
    My shops are:

    I sell on e-bay, etsy, shows, flea markets, and I'm in a big window of a peekskill antique store.

    I sell art deco and mid-century. If you'd like to see a few of my things - just go to etsy, pull down the dealer tab, and plug in yesterdaymodern.

    I think this is very cool that we can post this on your blog.
