Guys & Dolls Vintage Pop Up Shop
Saturday July 23rd was a Blast from the Past. The ladies of Instant Vintage 78 presented the 3rd Annual “Guys and Dolls Vintage Pop Up Shop” at Penn Social, Washington, DC. The event space was literally turned into a vintage shopping experience. Patrons came ready for the cause, dressed in their best vintage or throw back outfit. DJ Amen Ra kept it funky, spinning a mix of jams that everyone could get down to. Designer & Stylist KAS (host), encouraged guests to support local vintage brands while celebrating the brilliance of recycled fashion.
The collection of vendors included: Love Allie, Keepers Vintage, Terminology, 3 Shades Chic, Kurated by Kizzy Evae and more. Men and Women could find everything from ball gowns, suits, sportswear and street wear to jewelry and accessories. The room was filled with sparkles, sequins, leather, tweed and any other textile you can imagine. There was definitely something for everyone.
Stacey and Samantha of Vintage 78 shares that the event was created to “provided a platform for vintage dealers and other small businesses of sustainable goods to build their brands creatively showcasing and selling unique items while networking with style savvy consumers, fashion bloggers/media and stylist.” The event was surely one of a kind.
