Made in the Shade...

This week at Kitsch-y-Cool Vintage, we are bringing in DOZENS of the coolest vintage sunglasses we have come across in quite awhile.

Check out these deadstock eyewear found in an old drug store closed up in the early 1980's - some are the old Poloroid style, most have original tags, some Foster Grants, some colored wayfarer styles, some aviators - all tres cool! Priced $4 - $16...
See the BIG Round Blue Lens Pair above in the lower right corner - check out the 1972 Foster Grant commercial below and see Cindy Williams wearing these same sunglasses!!

Too many to display all at once, so we are bringing these in all month - if you are interested in a specific pair not at the shop, just ask!

Back to the Beach...

This week we are hoping for great weather as Sleepy Poet prepares for it's Spring Yard Sale!! Stop by and find a bargain, then you can give back by donating blood at the Community Bloodmobile - and you can even meet a CHARLOTTE ROLLER GIRL!!

To celebrate the upcoming Spring weather, we're hauling in all sorts of sundress and swimwear! Here's a sneak peek of some of the swimsuits - 1950s-1970s era, great names like Cole, DeWeese, Ceel, Gabar, and more!

Shopping on Fifth Avenue!

"We went to New York City and I bought a dozen new

That's what kept going thru my mind while unpacking our latest find! A box of beautiful dresses from all the chic boutiques New York City had to offer in the late 50s! Filled to the brim with unworn, most with original tags, lovely silk and linen dresses!

When I find surprises like this I can't help wondering about the original owner and the circumstance of why these wonderful dresses would be packed away, never worn, only to be uncovered 50 years later? Hmmm...

All came from wonderful
boutiques like Sally Milgrim, DePinna, and department stores
like Bergdorf Goodman!

All the dresses are in navy or black and in Medium to Large sizes. Most are silk or linen. All are coming Friday to Kitsch-y-Cool Vintage in Charlotte!
