Hats for a Lady

We have a few listings coming up this week that we thought we’d share with you! A few very lovely, ladylike hats from the 50’s and 60’s.

Sneak Peeks

Some of our favorite vintage finds have come from spur of the moment stops at garage and estate sales. Today just happened to be one of those days. We found some superb shoes and other heavenly items that we’ll be posting in the next few months. We might save some for a rainy day, but in the meantime here is a peek at today’s loot from a last minute estate sale (we literally walked in fifteen minutes before they were packing up to leave!) in a gorgeous mid-century home in Seattle.

Tell us, which one are you most excited for?

Thrifting near and far

Yesterday Lise + Katina headed north to do a little thrift shopping. We woke up early, drove straight to Bellingham, and hit every shop we could on our way back down south. We thought we would share a few pictures from our trip:

Sneaks Peeks: Early Fall

We are still trying to soak up the last days of summer (it feels like it only just started here in Seattle!), but we have to admit there is a hint of fall in the air. Our listings this week are some great vintage pieces for those crisp autumn mornings and sunny afternoons. See if you can tell from the pictures what we have coming!

Shopping Day

Want to know what we’re busy doing almost every weekend? Shopping at estate sales, of course!

Our selections for Lise + Katina are chosen discerningly at a wide variety of sources to ensure that we see the full range of what’s out there! However, estate sales are our favorite places to find the best quality vintages loves (with the best stories). This is where we most often stumble upon true gems that have been meticulously stored or cared for over decades by owners who loved them just as much as we know their new owners will!

Here is a little peek into what this weekend was like for us:

See anything you like? Feel free to ask questions. Everything pictured is working it’s way into our store within the coming weeks!
