Today, I'd like to share some great instagram posts from a few Austin vintage shops. I am quite intrigued by vintage fashion and would love to add these garments and accessories to my closet. These shops have a great sense of vintage style that I highly enjoy following them (images are not in any particular order but just as I see them).
1980 Victor Costa designer evening dresses and quite glamorous from Bloomers and Frocks. I'm totally loving the emerald green dress and imagine it would look great as a bridesmaids dress.
These are wonderful Spring/Summer dresses from Sunday Millie. The dress to the left is a cute 80's dress with a darling belt buckle. The dress to the right is a vintage sheer floral dress with a matching waist tie. Both these dresses seem so comfortable.
Digging these vintage accessories from The Distillery Austin. This color scheme is gorgeous on any woman. The Distillery is Dynamite! I'm a huge fan of their stuff.
Did someone say girls night? Feathers Boutique carries spectacular vintage clothing and accessories. This is a perfect girls night top and the bangle to work that wrist. Slimpy sexy!
Ledbelly is now open!
Ledbelly officially opened it's showroom this week and relying on customer feedback in order to make our space special and unique.
Ledbelly is considerably different than most retail stores in downtown, Austin, Texas. It is similar to a pop-up shop or a jeweler with a spot inside a salon. Instead of taking on a vintage trailer, we decided to rent a space inside an art gallery to show our products for online inquiries and general public interest. Feedback and support has been wonderful and after this week, we would like to introduce something fairly new.
We are happy to announce the Ledbelly website and online store is LIVE!

Today I am happy to introduce Rave On Vintage, a super neat store run by former vendors of Hog Wild Vintage, Mike Hooker and Chelsea Wine. The store is right between Burnet and Lamar on North Loop, making it very convenient to stop and shop! Rave On features mid-century furniture, kitchenware, home decor, clothing, and accessories. They also have a great selection of vintage albums and magazines.
While visiting, I found that Mike and Chelsea regularly travel the country in search of great mid-century finds. Their love for the 1950's - 1960's is visible throughout the store and they are kind to share space with other local vintage vendors including, Cointrelle, Retro Texan, and Austin Vintage.
I was highly impressed by the store design. The living room and kitchen incorporate exactly what you should find in each area. Lamps are located in the living room, while dish-ware is located in the kitchen and the two unique bars in the center of the store.
Rave On Vintage opened it's doors in November and it shows they have great taste in mid-century style. The store is quite inviting right as you walk in. Here is a glimpse of Rave On Vintage!
Hello Austin Vintage followers! I'm afraid I've been missing for a while because we are currently preparing for our new vintage shop, Ledbelly!
My husband and I are spending a lot of time gathering the necessities required for the showroom (building the rack, shelves, registry table, marketing material, etc.) and because it's such a small space it makes it uniquely difficult. I also caught a cold this week but I am extremely pumped to get things going and start setting appointments soon.
Here is sneak peak of the Ledbelly preparations.
May 2013 - An Introduction of the Austin Vintage Blog
Austin Vintage Blog started in May of this year and it's been a blessing ever since. I started the blog while working as a wedding planner and realizing I admired vintage weddings more than anything else. I began by writing about Austin vintage wedding venues, vintage flasks, estate sales, salt and pepper shakers and happily featured Loot Vintage Rentals by the end of May.
It was a grand Monday afternoon visiting Gypsies Antiques and getting the chance to speak with owner Deborah Sierra. I couldn't have had a better visit. Deborah was so kind to discuss her passion for vintage and antiques and her enthusiasm was quite contagious.
When Deborah was young she traveled to Europe a lot. She now travels overseas for her store, gathering unique finds and objects of merit to showcase. She started in the antique industry by selling at antique malls in Central Texas. Her booth quickly grew into three and then four. It became evident her passion was bigger than she imagined. Besides selling antiques, interior design became such a thrill that opening in a larger location was just the right move. Her store is set up in interesting and engaging vignettes.
This Sunday, I'd like to share awesome instragram posts from some of the best vintage stores in Austin, Texas. These are great vintage items from clothes to furniture that can be purchased online, by phone, or directly through their stores.
I recently spent some time at Amelia's Retro-Vogue and Relics and had such a pleasure speaking with the owner, Jane Clarke. Clarke is one of sweetest gals I've ever met. It is quite evident throughout the store that Clarke appreciates fine quality which means a lot to a vintage shopper.
It's been a while since I have posted about Austin estate sales. I'm in the process of collecting inventory and the holidays have slowed me down in terms of writing on the blog but I'm always looking forward to promoting local business and seeing everyone do well.
Here are some super neat items for sale this Thursday-Sunday (click imagesfor source). You might even find some great Christmas gifts. Perhaps I'll see you there!
