introducing vintage housewares




When I first began selling vintage on Etsy almost 7 years ago, I was single, unsettled and pretty much was obsessed with collecting and selling vintage. These days, my life is different in every way compared to what it once was. I'm now married, with a three year old son, currently pregnant (due in June) with so many chores, task and appointments to keep up with, sometimes running M.H. takes the back seat. Now, I understand that this is no way to run a 'business' and each day I truly try to muster the energy to put work in. But, the truth of the matter is, I'm a 'one woman show' and I really shouldn't spread myself thin nor should I stress over completing my never-ending To-Do list. 

For the past few years, I've spent less time at thrift stores and more time in the kitchen, baking, cooking and tidying up. The kitchen has become my haven. A place where I can unwind, drinking a glass of wine while stirring a pot of homemade marinara sauce or create something new and delicious by testing a cake recipe. So, when I thought to introduce a few vintage houseware items to the shop, it wasn't farfetch in my opinion. I love shopping for rustic, pre-owned home goods in addition to beautiful antique jewelry and the occasional vintage formal gown. Just as my life is ever evolving, I think it's important to evolve Mod Human too. I hope you like my new finds for the shop, and even more to make a purchase and give these wonderful treasures a new home.

shop update: collection 2

orange satin evening bag

emerald green necklace

50s white evening bag

navajo southwestern earrings jewelry

40s black beaded purse bag

Collection 2 is now available in the vintage shop. I'm satisfied with the growth of new inventory I've collected over the past week and super excited to share my discoveries with you. In other news, I'm happy it's officially Autumn and the cooler weather has taken it's rightful place here in the south. Knitting, drinking Earl Gray and collecting vintage consumes a chunk of my spare time, the other portion is consumed by mommy/wife duties. Therefore, I hope it's not too long until there's another vintage update.

It's been a while, since I've last posted anything here on Blogger. A great deal of things have changed over the year(s) and as some might say, sometimes you must go full circle to find out where you truly belong. I missed blogging on this platform. Most of all, I missed selling vintage and sharing with you my finds. I missed the online community of talented writers, photographers, crafters and curators to say the least. Between moving across America (several times) we now find ourselves residing in the South once again, where my husband and I have originally met. 
It's great being back home and having a sense of familiarity all around us. A great amount of things that I once taken for granted, I'm ever so blessed to now have back in my life. I'm not yet convinced that we will forever stay here in the south to live and raise our son, but for now, it's great to be home. My shop, Mod Human Vintage will be undergoing a few changes over the next several weeks or so. There might be a possible name change and inventory may take a little longer to grow, but I am certain that things should be running smoothly by October 1st. Above, are three new items you can now find in the shop. It's great to finally have a shop update, no matter how small the update may be.

Flower Girl





These days all I ever seem to dream about is wearing a beautiful floral headpiece and prancing around my house with my child in arm dancing to our favorite folksy songs...
If anyone has any suggestions on a great d.i.y. tutorial, please pass on the link....

Shop Update I 11.26

1960s navy blue wool coat

1970s red riding hood fringe cape

1950s sailor knit sweater

1950s mohair sweater blouse

1960s fair isle cardigan sweater
One would typically find me moping around the house in an adorable vintage sweater and black cigarette pants, and when it's time to run errands, I'm wrapped in an oversize poncho or wearing a sturdy, wool coat. Sounds familiar... these things can now be found in the shop.
