Vintage Current, formerly known as “Super Kawaii Mama”, was begun in early 2008 as a place for anyone seeking fashion and lifestyle inspiration outside of the mainstream.

In the early days of blogging we all muddled along writing about our passions and finding our way across a developing landscape of independent publications. Begun as a personal work, the name, “Super Kawaii Mama” happened to be my online auction handle at the time and was simply transplanted into a blog setting. While the name reflected my childhood love of the Japanese ‘cute’ culture, and became synonymous with my individualistic style, there is always room for change.

July 2014 marks a special time for me. Not only are my children who were babies when the blog began, now both at school and in a pre teen phase; I’m also more aware of what it is I want to share through this blog.

From the years of support and reader feedback, we’ve built a strong community of like-minded individuals who are all looking to create a life they love. One that reflects their passions inside and out.

Every letter, email and conversation I’ve had with you has gone into forming the basis of the Vintage Current blog. As we evolve into something bigger, better and timeless; I thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.

  1. I just thought I might drop you a line in case you are looking for new stories/content/etc.

    My name is Suzanna McMahan and I am the daughter of a Yankee and a southern belle who met on a blind date in Dallas. While one side of the family taught me the appreciation of hard work and taking care of the earth, the other side taught me how to enjoy being spoiled every once in a while as well as having good taste in design.

    Having been taught to recycle since I was 5 and to shop antique stores for the best furniture since I was 15, these lessons came to the forefront of my mind when hurricane Katrina hit in 2005 and I had to create a job for myself when I couldn’t go back to the Gulf Coast. Ever since then, I’ve been dedicating my life to stop broken costume jewelry and “old things” from going into the landfill so they can find new life and give meaning to those who love my work.
    I’ve been mentioned on the following blogs and sites: cuteable.com, missmalaprop.com, tintedwedding.com and listed on ecofriendly-fashion.com.

    I sold a piece featuring Mary, Queen of Scots to Lesley Smith, former TV personality on “Most Haunted” and curator of Tutbury castle (where the last Queen of Scotland was executed and where Ms. Smith does an impersonation of her for visitors).

    If interested, I would really love it if you would post about me and my work. Thank you!
