Observations of an Invisible Woman

Introducing Megan Dorsey: Vintage Shop Owner

I’ve always had a love for old things. Every time I would visit my grandmothers house, she would let me go through her vintage clothes, purses and jewelry. I could play in it for hours and it would only feel like minutes…  Megan Dorsey, Vintage Shop Owner

Megan @ Seventh Vintage on Etsy.com

This beautiful shop owner has turned her love of antique things into a fully-functioning and thriving business and with her determination, she’s created Seventh Vintage:

Even though Megan’s grandmother is now watching her from up above, we know that she’d be proud of her granddaughter for all that she’s accomplished. I took a look at her shop and this caught my eye:

Apparently, Megan loves attention to detail…and so do I.

I ran across Etsy.com by happenstance. I actually don’t remember exactly how but I’m glad I did. I remember the first thing I sold. An antique cotton lace dress made in France. I remember the price too… and instant 30 bucks. I liked how it made me feel. I liked that people loved the things I picked out and curated and I loved their positive feedback. I began to make jewelry, one of my other passions and that jumped off better than I expected. I was getting messages, business proposals and most of all great customer feedback. That was when I knew I was a business woman. I do this because it makes me feel good… because I want for African American people to see themselves in a different light. Not always following fleeting trends. The style back in the day was timeless and classy. I religiously Google pictures of African Americans from the 1900’s to 1960’s because the men and women looked so classy and I want us to get back to that.  — Megan

    nice, why not right? i have visions of us becoming a powerhouse on the market if we just work together. cause ain’t nobody got flava and style like black people do! YA HEARD.

  6. Love the concept. Etsy seems to be the place for finding that black entrepeneurial spirit that we need to encourage. Much success to the Sistah!

  7. Great post! Black people handling their business? Love it!

  8. nmaat

    Yes…I was shock at how many of us are out there! And they ALL said yes to help each other. More to come!!!!

  9. emile

    Yes, sir. Me too.

  10. Oh wow. I love vintage stuff so I’ll definitely be visiting…

  11. Look we are going to HAVE to realize we are all we got. It’s going to get much worse before it gets better. It’s going to be every man/woman for himself & Black people are going to be forced back into the spirit of co-operation and community we exhibited prior to the lie of ‘integration’. We ain’t gon have no choice. So it’s best to start now, better late than never.

    it’s only a matter of time before they ban your blog, can’t have niggers trying to create another wall street

    I do! But it’s at your own risk. The packages can’t be tracked unless you pay a ton of money. I rarely have problems but I have had them before.
