Fall Accessories: Vintage Purses


Fall is right around the corner and it's time to pull out those cozy sweaters and scarves.  Have you been wanting to add some vintage pieces to your wardrobe?  The easiest way to begin is by incorporating a handbag, a pair of boots, or a hat.  There's also the option of jewelry.  So many possibilities.  

Let's start with a really cool vintage purse that's perfect for Fall.  Here's a preview of what's available in our shop in Galena, IL.

Later on this week we'll showcase some really cool hats.

Vintage Inspired Halloween Costumes


Halloween is right around the corner.  Parades, costumes, and candy!  We get a lot of customers in our shop looking for clothing pieces to put together their outfit.  So, I put together a few photos to give you some inspiration.

Don't forget about Galena's 35th Annual Halloween Parade and Festival on October 25th!  Fun for the whole family.  Click here for additional info.  Tip:  If your planning on attending the parade and will visit one of the local restaurants downtown afterwards, book your reservation the day before.  Everything fills up fast!


Marsha/Jan Brady?


Samantha from Bewitched?


June Cleaver?


Twiggy?  (mini dress)


Once you find your costume, you'll need some accessories.  We've got plenty to choose from.





Tip:  Punch out the lenses and wear the frames!

Vintage Games: Cowboys and Indians




Cowboys and Indians was put out by Hasbro.  This frontier set has several pieces that allows you to construct many different scenes.  The pieces are cardboard and have a crease that'll allow them to stand up. The cardboard locks together for the observation tower and "Fort Cheyenne" to give it a realistic look.

The Cowboy and Indian figures are made of plastic.

It would make a great display for a boys room.

On our previous post we featured the vintage game Spellola.  Which game will be next?
