Christmas with Jana's Stuff

If you haven't already discovered the most adorable vintage shop on Etsy, you are in for a treat.

Janastuff is a perfect place to go shopping for a unique gift for your vintage-loving friends. It is a small shop that offers great customer service, quality products, sensational photo styling, and excellent product descriptions.

KK (Kara Kitsch), who is seen above auditioning for Vanna's job, is the model and spokesperson. She is the glamorous one who appears in all the product photos. She is tireless and good-natured, loves bubble baths, gets in a little trouble when she "sleeps" in the Italian bread basket, and takes too many breaks with her new boyfriend.

Jana is the collector and shop owner. She takes the photos and writes brilliant copy for each item. I swear, when you go to the shop you must read the description of every item--including the already sold ones. It is delightfully entertaining.

Janastuff is no cookie cutter vintage store (although they do sell some). Great care has been taken to offer shoppers a unique experience. Once you have visited, you will want to return frequently to see whether there is anything new in the shop and to catch up on KK's exploits.

Valerie, my head model, would love to meet KK and get to know her. She thinks they would be the best of friends. Valerie has lots of stories about her days on the road with the gypsies and her later running with the circus midgets, and she bets that KK has a lot of good stories to share as well.

In this last photo, which is the one taken for KK's Christmas card this year, she is posing with Mac, her latest flame. I can't help but wonder if Mac is Mr. Right and what he will get KK for Xmas. If you have suggestions for him, leave them in the comments.

Janastuff has been offering an 11% discount. Maybe if you hurry over there you can still get in on the deal. Tell her I sent you.

Oh, and be sure to check out KK's Facebook page!
