The all first Chicago Vintage Clothing and Jewelry show in February was a smashing success!
I can't wait to do it again on Friday and Saturday, March 2 & 3, 2018.
The show was fun. Really fun! It was the perfect mix of vendors and customers who appreciate the quality, elegance, nostalgia and history vintage pieces hold.
I was proud they were call us the NEW Cat's Pajamas or New Elgin. They were great and we miss it, but I have no doubt we all felt a new buzz in the room. Dealer sales were brisk, customers were thrilled!
I thank all of you that came and supported a new show. From as far as Toronto, LA and New York City and we thank you who came from Chicago and the burbs. This year we're going to start a little earlier on Friday to avoid the worst in Chicago traffic.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the first annual Chicago Vintage Clothing and Jewelry show!
Vendors or customers, I am doing a display of Merimekko dresses for the show so far I have 7. If you have one you'd like to include please contact me here. The dress can be for sale but must be picked up by customer at the end of the show. Must be pre-1990.
If you are an expert in Merrimekko let me know. I'd like to also provide more details and info about the company and designs and designers.
Vendors who did the 2017 show will get first priority and you can sign up now by clicking here.
