Happy 1st Friday everyone!

Etsy feature square

I am really excited to share this month’s featured Etsy shop with you all!  It’s something a little different than what I have featured before, but I think you will love it.

Meet Wini and her 2 kiddos, owners of A Spring Fling.

Yes, Wini’s 10 year old son and 8 year old daughter are owners of the shop along with her. In fact, they play a pretty big role in the day-to-day running of the shop.

Here is a little bit more about A Spring Fling, in Wini’s own words:

I started “A Spring Fling” as a summer project with my kids teach them some life skills. It’s an internet version of a lemonade stand! All listings are prepared and arranged by my 10-year old son and 8-year old daughter. I take the photos, write descriptions, and decide pricing, but the kids are editing photos, preparing the listings, tagging, and handling the logistics. Along the way, they are learning about money and how to sell on the internet.

Isn’t that awesome? After finding the shop and reading all about her kids, I was so inspired to think of more ways to involved my own kiddos in my business.

A Spring Fling is really a treat for the vintage jewelry and notions lover, or for anyone who loves to craft and is looking for those unique, vintage craft supplies.

A large amount of the shop’s inventory is devoted to lots of vintage buttons, most often grouped by color.

I was particularly smitten with this gold and metallic toned button lot.

As well as this vintage wooden button lot.

And these are just a tiny sampling of the button lots for sale!!

If you’re looking for more glitz though, A Spring Fling also stocks color-grouped lots of vintage brooches.

Here is the Turquoise and Gold lot,

and one of the two, different Yellow Brooch lots.

I can see these brooches being crafted into fabulous headbands or barrettes, or grouped together and made into a statement necklace.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw these vintage Carnation earrings.  I have a necklace my grandmother passed down to me that matches these exactly.

This “Galaxy” earring set is pretty fantastic too.

Or maybe hairpins are your thing?  A Spring Fling has a several vintage ones to choose from.

Do you see why I love this shop?  On top of all of the fun inventory, I really admire how Wini has involved her kids in the activities of the business.  I bet they get pretty excited anytime they make a sale 🙂

So how about we make the kids’ day and go do some shopping at A Spring Fling? Wini has graciously provided a 10% discount to all Lost & Found readers through October 31st, just use the promo code LOLLIPOP at checkout.

Thanks for stopping by to see this month’s featured shop!
