Guess what everyone? Gary Pepper Vintage just turned 6 months old!

I don’t know if you guys have all noticed by now by my over the top, gushing style of writing but I’m an extremely sentimental person. The kind that likes to spend hours upon hours going through photos making the perfect present for her friends just so when they’re 80 they can look back and smile about how young and free and in love we all were. The kind that prefers hugs over birthday presents, friendship over fame, beautiful gestures over fortune, and the kind that likes to celebrate days that normally aren’t celebrated and remind everyone how much she appreciates them with her over the top, gushing style of writing, even if it is a little too often.

So this post is dedicated to each and every single one of you who have helped support Gary Pepper Vintage in one way or another over the past 6 months. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I cannot believe how fast the past few months have gone and how much has happened in such a short amount of time. Who would of thought it was only 3 months ago that I decided to take this en devour full time and quit my job? I never could have imagined such an overwhelming, warm and supportive response to my little vintage store and I truly thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for allowing me to chase a dream, thank you for teaching me to believe in myself, thank you for making every day better than the last, thank you for making me feel just so right about choosing to pursue a life long career out of my love for vintage, and thank you for watching not only my business, but also myself grow over the past few months. When some days get tough and i feel like breaking, I read over the beautiful emails you have sent and remind myself that this is in every way worth fighting for, so thank you. You all inspire me even if you don’t even know it and i can only anticipate what the next 6 months will bring for us.

So this is for you.
Thank you for making me the happiest girl alive
