Photos from Vintage Bazaar

I found these photos a customer took from the last Vintage Bazaar event Kate and I did for Badlands Chicago. Getting excited to do events again.

I've been holing up from the vintage selling world for the winter, but a recent trip to Arkansas and struck some vigor into my collecting habits. A completely new stock of vintage is refreshing. I'll be posting soon with some variety.

Stay Warm Everyone!

August Sale

I'll be selling at Vintage Heaven on August 13th (that's a Saturday) from 12-6. There will be racks of summer vintage and reconstructed pieces from my Badlands line. My friend Emily will be joining me and selling some of her photographs and art, too. Finally, you can at least stop by and pick up one of my delicious cupcakes for only $2 (wow! they're vegan and fucking out of this world, too!).

Tell all your friends. If you mention my blog, I'll give you $5 off your purchase ;-)

I haven't posted on here in a long time because I've been working on creating reconstructed vintage clothing over the past couple of months. These items include: graphic t's, dresses, jean vests, jean shorts and slip tops.
For more information look for: Badlands Chicago on facebook.

I'm having so much fun with these handmade items. You should all come out this weekend to Wicker Park and see what's new. Here's the flyer:

No Vacation Long Enough...

but I am back, everybody and have some delightful finds from Mountain Home, Arkansas. My vacation was such an amazing time and being away from the city makes me second guess living here...nothing beats clean air, people you love and beautiful (natural) scenery. At the same time, I wouldn't have the opportunities that I am grateful to have here, such as selling to and interacting with fresh customers every month. Which brings me to announce that it is in fact Vintage Heaven time, yet again.

Here's this month's poster: 

I'd like to post some of my favorite new items that will be for sale. I explored racks of clothing every day while I was on vacation and discovered some really beautiful summer pieces that are hard for me to give up ;) Enjoy!

Did I mention I'll be selling alongside my friend Kate who is one of the most badass people I know? We took some photos for our upcoming line (Bad Lands) of classic and reconstructed vintage. More on this to come. Look forward to a new approach to vintage merchandising. It will make you never want to buy new clothing again! For now, pictures. 


There were these cats lurking all over the neighborhood. I love this photo. 

More to come....

Until next post, make sure you stop by the Vintage Heaven sale NEXT WEEKEND. I will be selling both Saturday and Sunday. There will be a sale bin full of clothing from every season. All my new items will be for sale. Did I mention there will be shirts and shoes for the gentlemen? Yes, yes....
