Behind the Scenes with The 1950s House Wife

 Hello, and welcome to our first blog post! We are a guy and gal duo living in Chicago. We opened our vintage etsy shop, The1950sHouseWife, in February of this year. To our excitement it has done really well and we are continuously working on adding new items frequently.
 Here is a view of the pier by our beach. Chicago is an amazing place to be in the summer. Right now it's a little chilly, right after a heat wave, but there are always so many fun things to do. Our condo is right on the beach so we love to go lay out and cool off in the icy lake.
 Here's a peek at the inside of our condo and our new couch we just purchased!
 This is our cat, Mogwai. She is showing off her flexibility in this picture.
 We thought it would be fun to share what our favorite items are in the shop right now. Nick chose the Baby Owl Toothpick Holder a cute little find that we got back in Kansas. As I am obsessed with all things owl, I have to agree that this is one of my faves too.
I picked this set up a few weeks ago. It is my absolute favorite find. They are A Mother's Encyclopedia with tips on child rearing. They are from the 1950s, when the stay at home mother was the norm. There are so many interesting details and tips. The covers are also gorgeous.

In future posts we hope to share with you all the things we love, new items, exciting recipes, fun places and restaurants that we love. For now take a gander at our shop and we hope to talk more soon!
-Emma and Nick
