I acquired some gently used skirts great for dancing, ladies. Some trumpet, a-line, full, cut on the bias and generally twirly ones in all sizes and colors are now available. I also picked up some sweet and sexy fishtail skirts that are great for our other non-dancing activities. Come check them out before they get snapped up at my excellent prices!
I will also have a box of free stuff from my closet for everyone to pick through so have fun with that 🙂
Model J Vintage has got a new gig! I will be bringing my vintage clothes and some other items to Swing ReMix in NYC tomorrow night. Woot! So now I’ve got two gigs per month just for all the swing dancers out there. Know that I will be on the lookout for more items that are great to dance in. I am also doing some alterations that make things great to dance in. I am excited to be clothing the swing scene here in my native city. Model J Vintage accepts cash and checks at this time so be prepared.
Item Tease: “A split is good but a strike is better.” Do you know what I’m bringing to sell?
Model J Vintage made a showing at Frim Fram this holiday season for their craft and vintage market. It was a huge success. I brought a double clothing rack and teamed up with Voon Wai, a local vintage enthusiast, who was looking to thin out his personal collection. One side was all women’s and the other was men’s with some slight overlap. We were mobbed! Thanks to all the swing dancers who appreciated our wares!
It was so wonderful to see many of the pieces fit so perfectly on their new owners. I carry a lot of different sizes so each piece is waiting for it’s perfect owner match in size and style. I will be adding some photos from the event to this post so stay tuned!
Model J Vintage was launched this past weekend at local monthly New York City swing dance event Jam Circle. Happy dancers Monica, Neal and Kim took home three lovely items; a stretchy blue 40’s inspired dress that will be perfect for dancing, a lovely cotton 70’s men’s shirt printed with scattered “blue” blueberries on a background of pale red blueberries, and a beautiful 40’s inspired black print skirt with red trim also perfect for dancing. Some other lovely items are waiting for that perfect person to take them home. I will be listing them here for all to see with details on size, condition and price. Some I will send out into the ebay world and let a wider audience take a look. I am waiting for the delivery of some display mannequins to better show off the garments and give you an idea of how they hang on the body.
