vintage style!

As most of you know, my husband, Clayton, and I own a vintage/millinery shop on 1729 W Tilghman Street, Allentown PA.  It's a quaint shop. Everything that is weird and wonderful is in here. If you wanted to get lost in time, and laugh until your stomach hurts, come on in here. Don't be afraid of the word VINTAGE.  Vintage means 'a moment in time' or a 'time period'. In here, you get lost in not only time, but HISTORY. It's a great place to educate your kids. Fashion was so engrossed in what was going on at that moment in time.

I have a sign on the door, please don't be put off by it. It reads, "This is not a thrift store. We are a Millinery/Vintage store. Our items are delicate and sometimes rare. Please respect our space. Mind your children and enjoy....all items damaged are considered sold, thank you."     The reason I put that up is because the items we have in here, we have taken  great pains to restore and to make wearable. A 1890's velvet cape with trim which is selling for $400 should not be thrown about, nor should someone's child with a lollipop come and touch it with his sticky hands.  We love to have people come in and browse about our shop and laugh and stroll down memory lane and ask me, 'did people really WEAR this?'  But everything old can be new again, with a touch of something new like a belt or some jewelry. Maybe some new boots or a scarf or a cool jacket. You would be surprised how many years of vintage clothing just go round and round. Great designers are inspired by the shoulder pads of the 40's and the sleek lines of the 20's.  The grand circle dresses of the 50's are so perfect for a pear shaped body! (like mine!)  And once you purchase something in a vintage shop, I can guarantee you that no one on the street will be wearing anything like it! You will be unique like a snowflake! And EVERYONE will want what you have.

I hope that you have the opportunity to come to our shop on Tilghman street. We love our customers and I love dressing them up like real live barbie dolls!  But most of all, I love to see women look like women. I like women to look and feel beautiful and appreciate every line and curve of their glorious bodie that they  live with every day. We have corsets for women who need alittle help, or who want to feel extra feminine.We have jewelry that supports women's causes all over the world. Most of all, we have unique things for women who want to be 'special'.  

thank you for reading today.....and remember:
