We Came, We Saw, We Shopped: All Vintage Everything 3

At the All Vintage Everything event at SUB-Mission gallery, there was something unique from every vendor, including crocodile purses, funky sunglasses and belt buckles, killer shoes, amazing coats, beautiful dresses and handmade accessories.

As for the vibe, the people were super-friendly, and the cocktails were tempting on such a hot day. What more could you ask for? (Well, maybe some clothes for the guys out there. We like to shop, too.) All in all, All Vintage Everything was a great opportunity to shop for one-of-a-kind pieces, and it definitely wasn’t hard to find something worth taking home, thanks to event organizer Myra of Designers and Artists and the vendors such as Jaguar Lipstick, Bred Vintage, Gileads Treasures, Sorcery and Mob Shop Underground.

Oh, and if you missed out, here’s the good news: you can find most of the shops on etsy.
