The hubby and I had an early morning start this Saturday as we headed over to the Vintage Fashion Expo for the first time at San Francisco, California. It's being held at a San Francisco County Building near the San Francisco Botanical Garden at Golden Gate Park all weekend so head down there Bay Area folks, tickets at the door are $15 per person. More details about this event can be found at Vintage Expo. I had so much fun looking around and checking out the vintage goods of some of the exhibitors at the show. Most of these vendors strictly sell only at shows similar to this expo or antique shows along the state of California. I saw so many varieties of one of kind high-end designer vintage shoes, jewelry, clothing, scarves, sunglasses, lucite handbags, lots of bakelite jewelry, and only a few vintage men's fashion booths. Below are the few exhibitors at the expo that I though were worth checking out.
:: Gaby's Attic ::
According to her daughter, Gaby has been collecting vintage goods for the last forty years.
You can find her shop on Etsy here.
:: The Bakelite Lady ::
Pam has a gazillion bakelite hair accessories from the 50's and 60's all from France. Her bakelite bracelets also range from $20 to $230. I also bought some vintage dachshund pins in bold bright colors. I so wish I could've bought more.
:: Fivo Sixo ::
This exhibitor had a great selection of vintage high end designer shoes.
:: Omyd's Antiques ::
Mostly vintage jewelry and so many different brooches. But I had to get this vintage ornate bracelet pictured below.
:: Barbara Grigg ::
Such pretty bakelite jewels and so much more.
:: Luxe ::
This was my favorite exhibitor with such high quality vintage cashmere sweaters, shoes, jewelry, and handbags. The prices are a little out of my range but you are sure to find something unique at this booth such as this exotic bird handbag and a beautiful embellished Moschino sweater.
:: Faultline Collectibles ::
Such a great selection of vintage dresses, clutches, and handbags.
:: Blue Moon Antiques ::
I scored on this vintage lucite necklace. So fun! But the vintage Hermes Berkin is a dream.
There are a total of five shows per year and I will definitely be back at the San Francisco Vintage Expo again. For Los Angeles folks, the next show is on May 2015.
Thanks so much for reading!
