Pattie Cordova, founder

I was born in Orange County, California where I still reside. I’m first generation Mexican-American (aka Chicana) – born to immigrant factory workers. My childhood was spent at the swap meet on Sundays to sell items that we had purchased the day prior at garage sales.

I put myself through college, Cal State University Fullerton, by designing and selling gift baskets… mostly to banks and real estate companies. I’ve had more jobs that I can count, the first being at a hair salon at the age of 13, with my last job being an Executive Assistant at an insurance company.

I was laid off in 2009, when my oldest chiclet, Anakin, was one and a half years old. Shortly thereafter, we foreclosed on our condo, had to move into an apartment and that’s where I became a stay-at-home mom.

I started blogging as a way to share more about the vintage goods that I was selling on Etsy to make ends meet. Back then, this little piece of the internet was called ” Vintage Mafia.” Soon, this blog became a space for me to share my daily struggles as a new SAHM, and it quickly snowballed from there to me sharing about my lifestyle.

I’ve learned so much through my different partnerships and in doing so, launched Cordova Media Group LLC – a social media agency in Orange County where we work with small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Our family of three has became a family of four. We welcomed Luca, our youngest chiclet in 2011. We now live in a ranch-style house in the city of Orange, California.
