September 19, 2012New Sponsor Shout-Out – The Vintage Village
Hey guys! RetroRuth here to give a big welcome to our newest sponsor, Lora from The Vintage Village! I know that many of you are already members of the awesome Vintage Village site (like I am) and visit it frequently, but for those of you who haven’t checked it out yet you should really head over there and take a look around. Here is Lora to explain exactly what the Vintage Village is and, if you are interested, how you can join:
Hello All! My name is Lora, a.k.a. ElsiesAttic and I am the creator and CEO of The Vintage Village and we are very excited to be a sponsor of No Pattern Required!
The Vintage Village is a website that focuses on absolutely every aspect of Antiques, Vintage & Collectible items you can imagine (AVC for short) whether you are looking to sell them or buy them or are simply looking for information on pieces you own via our Vintage Detectives section. We are a Social Networking site, a Selling Venue and a Community all in one. How cool is that?
This vintage brooch was identified by the Vintage Detectives here!
We are a fun and vibrant community where you can meet people who are truly passionate about the field. If you sell online, we have a great support system called Shop Keepers Corner, helping each other with all the various aspects of the business side of the industry. We also have individual support groups for venues like Ruby Lane, Etsy, and Artfire to name a few. There are groups for things like collectors of Vintage Jewelry and Lace and even a group for Vintage Button lovers!
Since we are a true community, we also have groups for things like Charities, The Healthy Hippy and one for you to share stories and pictures about your Pets and a place to post Recipes… let’s just say there is something for everyone there!
Our site is completely free to join, only folks looking to use the site as a promotional social networking tool have to pay a fee to post their items for sale. We help bring traffic to your shops by taking out Ads (part of your fee) and doing as much grass roots marketing as we can that helps to keep costs low.

Our site grows a little more each day and we would love for you to stop by our Village. It’s where Vintage NEVER Gets Old!
Thanks again, Lora, and welcome to No Pattern Required! We are thrilled to welcome such a fun site into our little family.
