How'd you move into vintage fashion? With a great appreciation of history & culture, I'm increasingly drawn to incorporate vintage elements & concepts into my timeless jewelry line, DaSue Collection. My sense of style and love of quality, detail & recycling are reflected well in the vintage aesthetic. Over the years I've collected so many nice items; and folks recommended I offer my lines on the vintage market. These past 2 years with Vintage Garage Chicago have been a wonderful experience!
What's your favorite thing to sell? Special pieces that perfectly enhance a personal story of my customer!
Are you bringing anything extra special to the show? Yes, I'll be showcasing new lines of DaSue Collection jewelry which feature very cool handmade beads and hand painted, embellished recycled elements. I also will feature my collection of unique mid-century & 80's apparel & accessories in handwoven, knitted, applique, lace, leather & retro-print materials; been saving these babies for a long time!
