Going to a Vintage Show? Insider Tips & Interview

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Email -- Filament.io 0 Flares ×

This weekend, vintage collectors and sellers will be going nuts on both coasts – the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show and Santa Monica Vintage Expo are in town. I’m already making plans to meet up with some of my favorite sellers and shoppers. Maybe I can get some pictures to show you!

In the meantime, if you’ve ever had questions about these types of shows, or are just curious about who runs them, I have a great interview with the co-owners of the SM Vintage Expo, Robert and Christie Alvarez. They share their history with the show, their professional observations, and some valuable insider tips on how to work the show. It’s an older video, so don’t mind the dates they have given.

If you want to see more videos, let me know what topics you are interested in! I promise to show my face in the next one.

Thanks Elena! Very sweet of you. Come! I’ll set you up in my spare bedroom/office. I’ll have to clear the mounds of vintage out of the way though.

Great tips, especially the handle with care part, as sometimes buyers might forget vintage items are frailer than what you find at Zara or the like, also tnx for your lovely comment xo
