|Sexy leopard items are always popular for costume or for clubbing! And leopard is so "in" again this season, baby!|
This is why I realized having the Top Shelf Flea II a week before Halloween is PERFECT timing! First of all it's a transitional season. People are looking for not only warmer clothes, coats, etc. but also great formal items to wear to the flurry of holiday events taking place in November and December. Second, people are looking for fun, unusual items to wear for Halloween! What a great mixture of shoppers! Plus, likely some hard core vintage addicts will find some fun costume ideas, and, some strictly "here for a costume" types will get sucked in to the beauty of some vintage treasures. Win win!
|Mad Men Costume or Fashion statement? Patriotic 60's suit or crazy politician lady costume? These work equally well as both!|
Last year I sold a fantastic hot pink 1960's cropped suit, just like the two above and was somewhat aghast when the buyer sent me a photo after Halloween of herself wearing it covered in blood! "Relax" she assured me, "the suit was perfect for my costume but the blood was temporary. In fact, I am wearing the skirt as I type this!" Whew, thank you for that. See, both costume AND fashion, who knew?

Keep in mind that the vintage sellers at the Top Shelf Flea will each have a variety of items for you again at this event! Whether you are looking for a formal affair, every day wear, costumed event or gift for that someone-special in your life we've got it! And, plenty of places to try on the goods for size! Bring your friends, bring your camera phone and get second opinions if needed! We all love to talk vintage shop and are happy to help you find exactly what you need.
