The Thrill of the Hunt

A very SNEAK peak at what is soon to come

It hits me when I walk into the building, like a shockwave through my body. The smell of the past runs deep into my sinus’; that familiar mothballs and dust smell of vintage wares. I’m exhilarated. I don’t where to start first. Row before row, shelf before shelf of boxes all labeled “60’s dresses”, “80’s cocktail”, “Secretary blouses”.

I get excited and I start getting that tense feeling in my stomach. It isn’t a bad tension, it’s the anticipation of the wonderful find that I am going to come across. I know its out there, I just have to rummage through these boxes to get through to them.They are all there for the taking and for my pleasure.

I bring down the first box that intrigues me “cocktail dresses”  and I am not impressed. I see an ocean of sequins and beads and some torn lace. I am determined not to give up! I decide to rummage to the bottom of this box and I see gorgeous pink chiffon peeking through a gaudy new years dress. I tug at the fabric and out comes a long flowy 70’s maxi dress. I start to sweat with excitement! My first find of the day!


Now, I am completely motivated. I go to the next box labeled 90’s dresses and I find a mid length awesome grunge dress. I can’t help but feel like Liv Tyler.



I decide one more peek into dresses will suffice. I shuffle towards the room with the hanging racks and decide to peek in there. I stay away from the shoes because they always get me in trouble. I see bright blue peeking through two old MOB dresses. I gravitate towards the rack and find this adorable 70’s dress.


It’s only been 10 minutes and I found three amazing dresses. I cockily walk toward the bag section and look for some great vintage bags and behold: a coach bag. Damn this is luck. I also find two great 60’s/70’s bags.



I never have as much luck with tops but I proceed to find an amazing 70’s secretary blouse and an early 80’s open cardigan and sweater. I also find my favorite type of hippie skirts. All in all, it was a good day for inventory!


Now to get Mom Jeans over here to take some pictures!
