Inhumans of New York

Jake La Botz, a very talented musician, has started a new Facebook group, Inhumans of New York.  We saw Jake playing with our dear friends Andy York and Ira Elliot at Bait & Tackle a few weeks ago in Red Hook.

That’s Jake in the fancy cowboy shirt.

At Vintrowear, we like mannequins too.

Halloween Window Shopping

August 23, 2013 § Leave a comment

The governing fantasy is that Vintrowear will begin selling vintage costume apparel beginning Halloween 2014.  Since current resources are applied toward cowboy shirt acquisition and sales, our buyer made purchases from Vice Versa Vintage, only in her imagination.  Our imaginary 2013 Fall Collection would have included:

But tonight the rain’s pourin’ down on our roof.  As long as the damn thing doesn’t start leaking again, we’ll be just fine!  On January 29, 2012, Vintrowear began its great southernward migration, camping out along the way, enduring privations and hardship, an arduous months long journey to reach the land of milk and honey: Brooklyn.  Take us home, Flat Rate!

A heartfelt thanks to the many friends who hosted these wayward travelers, who gave us a place to lay our heads during our months of homelessness. We made it here, but we couldn’t have done it without you.  Thank you.

Silver Moon Beam Hostess Goddess Mumu: As Seen at Holy Name Thrift Store

Someone needs to light up the night this New Year’s Eve in this sparkling get-up:

Silver Sparkle Hostess Gown

It’s long, it’s got rhinestone buttons, and it’s something Endora might wear if she were visiting outer space.

Would you like a closer look?  Make sure you’re wearing your 2012 sunglasses.

What are you doing for New Year’s Eve?  The Vintrowear family will be knocking back champagne and thanking our lucky stars for the phantasmagorical 2011 we just had.  Many thanks to the gods and goddesses (you know who you are!) who made the Vintrowear store possible.

Where Am I?
