Kickass Historical Vintage from Augusta Auctions

Kickass Historical Vintage from Augusta Auctions

When Antiques Roadshow fashion expert, Karen Augusta from Augusta Auctions emailed me regarding logo work for her vintage auction company, I got really excited, went to her page… and nearly fainted from the heavy breathing. I got all sheepish, with the distinct feeling I was indulging in fashion porn.

You know exactly what I mean.

  • Thanks a lot for the post. I am a huge fan of the blog, i’ve just put a little bookmark right on the tool bar of my Firefox you’ll be pleased to know!

  • i like online auctions, they give that sort of adrenaline rush when buying-”

  • I’m going on my 2nd year in the photography industry and I’m discovering new stuff constantly, including this posting – many thanks for sharing. Jenn

  • Stacey

    I just love this vintage collection. Everything is just so glamorous and takes you back in time.

  • Oh my gosh, that was amazing!!! I wish I could figure out how to make a vintage fashion like that (or have the patience to do so).

  • I just want to mention I am just new to blogging and really enjoyed you’re blog. Probably I’m planning to bookmark your website . You amazingly come with incredible articles. With thanks for revealing your webpage.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been conducting a little research on this. And he actually bought me breakfast simply because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this matter here on your blog.

  • Hi, i think that i saw you visited my website so i came to “return the favor”.I am attempting to find things to improve my website!I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!

  • Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

One thing I also believe is credit cards providing a 0% interest frequently application to consumers in zip scale, the twinkling of an eye authorization and laid-back on-line weigh up transfers, nevertheless beware of the number one feature that can void your 0% easy streets annual percentage rate and too fling you absent into the poor accommodation rapid.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • I think other site proprietors should take this website as an model, very clean and fantastic user genial style and design, let alone the content. You’re an expert in this topic!

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • Great post and straight to the point. I am not sure if this is actually the best place to ask but do you people have any thoughts on where to employ some professional writers? Thanks in advance :)
