You say you loved that Chris Isaak video with Helena Christensen running on the beach in her underwear? And you love all the fabulous black and white photographs of the early 1990’s super models in high fashion? Then may I suggest you take a day before August 3rd to visit the Herb Ritts: L.A. Style exhibition at The Getty?
Yes, it is Barbara Streisand from Funny Face. Amazing 1960s leopard print coat….
Need a vintage distraction this weekend in warm and sunny SoCal? Look no further than the Silver Lake Art, Craft, & Vintage Flea Market. Apparently it is the second Saturday of every month, tomorrow the 10th being no exception. You can find it at the Micheltorena Elementary School 10am-4pm. I have to work, so I am hoping for a report on my desk Sunday morning in lieu of my attendance, especially since admission is free!
Of course, when there is something in Southern California going on I am heading North! If you are near the Valley this weekend go to Pickwick Gardens on Sunday between 9am-3pm for the Vintage & Textile Show in Burbank. Don’t forget to report back to me on the retro goodies you find! Oh, and I almost forgot, it’s $7 to get in!
Long Beach’s own Retro Row is having a side walk sale this coming Saturday the 23rd, 12-6pm. Vintage clothes & furniture of course, as well as music and food, will be available for your entertainment. It sounds like an amazing neighborhood party with great deals on vintage goods, but alas, I can not go! But I hope to hear all about the amazing deals!
