How to be a Diva!

How do you achieve your Inner Diva?
To me being a Diva is a state of mind.  Your mind will react to the luxury of  gorgeous gowns, sparkling jewelry, furs and wonderful vanity items. In other words surround yourself with divalishous items and you will feel like the Diva you are.  What you can buy is the affordable vintage items that the Divas of the Past wore.

Divas Shop

The Divas Beginnings

My love for vintage goes way back. My love for antiques is equally as important to me. I had the opportunity to mix those two loves with my sense of color and design to open my own Brick and Mortar store. I opened Eclectic Designs for Living on Main Street in Pennsylvania.

I was able to live my dreams for 5 years. I had great fun, opportunity to expand my ideas, to meet people and introduce them to Vintage in all its glory. Dresses, jewelry and furs. Little did I know it was a wonderful way to GO GREEN.

As life has a way of changing, I had to give up this wonderous shop. I have included a slide show of ECLECTIC A WAY OF LIVING
I hope you enjoy and please share your thoughts with me and others.

Now I am TheEclecticDiva selling online at Etsy. I hope you will browse
through my shop online and see my little pieces of the past.
