Sorry for the long absence! It has been almost 2 weeks since my last post, which should prove to you just how busy I have been! Not only has my blog been neglected, but I have also neglected my shop! No more! This week will be full of post and about 20-40 new pieces added to the shop. I spent today taking photos and I will be hopefully adding them tonight or tomorrow morning.
Why am I so busy you ask? This weekend was the opening day of the Randolph Street Market. My brother and I had amazing new items to show off, so we had spent the last 2 weeks prepping for this huge event. Not only did we have that going on, we also were asked to participate on WGN's midday fix & WIC talking about the Market and promoting Dethrose Vintage!!! I was a nervous wreck and it really didn't help that the news anchor was not prepared at all! My shop is about 2 minutes in...
Watch the WGN clip here:
Our display looked so good and my friend Heather looked absolutely amazing in the 50's Blue Dress. The best part about this weekend was the great feedback my Brother and I received! Everyone adores our booth and are always so amazed by Jon's collection...can you blame them??? Needless to say, despite the awful weather Chicago endured this weekend, our sale was a huge success. People braved the monsoon that hit and supported our little family business and made all the hard work totally worth it! Jon I know you read my blog, hopefully you see Chicago needs us to open up a shop in the very near future;)
I was bummed the dress I had on wasn't shown better but here it is upclose:)
Late 30's Silk Floral Print Dress: Niou Niou Vintage on Etsy
