Debutante Clothing Vintage Showroom Coming Soon!
The problem with vintage clothing, whether you buy it, sell it or collect it, is that eventually this tempting little obsession will literally take over your home. Because I sell online and at A Current Affair, keeping my inventory in my home was very easy. Well. I have sort of outgrown this situation. And of course my husband, as patient as he has been, agrees it’s time to move on up and out. So I am so excited and proud to announce that Debutante Clothing will now have a showroom in downtown Pomona right in the Arts Colony.
Downtown Pomona is such a great place to visit if you are into antiques, vintage, and art. Antique Row is on 2nd Street and I do have a small space in the Pomona Antique Mall (check me out at space #317). The Arts Colony is full of restaurants, bars, clubs, a couple of vintage shops, art galleries, and some amazing architecture.
The Debutante Clothing Showroom will be located at 300 S. Thomas St. Suite #312. This building is amazing. Built in the 1930s, it was the home of the Progress Bulletin, a local paper that was running until the 1970s I think. There’s an art gallery in the basement, stunning living spaces and galleries on the second floor, and mixed business and living spaces on my floor. I love all the brass hardware and the old, grand look of the building. I am also back to back with the Fox Theater, a 1920s vaudeville masterpiece, which hosts top billing artists. If you get a chance to see a concert there, I HIGHLY recommend it. I saw Duran Duran there and I swear there are no bad seats in the house.
The showroom is only about 300 sq. ft., but I can always grow right? I figure it is the same cost per square foot as storage plus I can work from there and, here’s the best part, hold trunk shows! I am planning on having one trunk show a month during the monthly Pomona Art Walk so that you can make an evening of it. i will also offer private appointments. I am planning on having an open house on August 13, so save the date if you are in Southern California.
UPDATE: The open house has been postponed until September due to unforeseen circumstances. I’ll let you know the date!
I am so excited for this new adventure. I hope you can come visit me in my new little home! Like Debutante Clothing and Debutante Clothing Showroom on Facebook to keep up with sale and event announcements!
