Why hello there! This past weekend was extremely fun (and busy!). I helped a friend with her pop-up vintage sale. She has a few online shops including her women's shop Retro Remnants, which is full of amazing vintage pieces. A couple of times a year she brings her massive inventory out into the light and has a sale on all of her items! I helped her set up on Friday, and then got to hang out with her most of the day Saturday too, talking to many interesting people and steaming, selling, and taking pictures of all of her gorgeous gowns, shoes, coats, etc. It was a vintage-loving gal's dream really. She has a few stunning silk gowns from the 1930's and 40's that I had never seen before in her inventory. I about died. Someday I'll convince her to let me do a photoshoot with some of her items, how fun would that be!?
Anyway Sean and I helped her tear down on Sunday and this is what I wore to do that! A nice, comfy dress and my favorite black oxfords. The best part of being able to help her this weekend (other than getting to hang out with a great friend for three days straight)? I convinced her to let me buy her entire inventory of women's vintage hats, as she is trying to get out of selling them because they are too fragile and difficult to store properly. I want to begin selling hats on my Etsy Shop, so this was a perfect opportunity. I took inventory of all of the hats when I got home, and there are over 75 of them!! So I got a phenomenal deal. I also couldn't resist trying every single one of them on, and let me tell you there are a few I'm definitely keeping for my own collection :).
So all in all it was a fantastic time and I'm very thankful I got to be a part of it.
