Today my mother and I went to Magpie Vintage, my favorite vintage store in Portland, I always leave with something :) Today was no exception, only instead of finding something for me, I found something for Sam! It's pretty cool, can't wait to share photos.
We met with Janey of Atomic Redhead and I bought an adorable kitty dress from her. Can't wait to share photos of that too! She looked lovely as ever, but I forgot to snap a pic :( Too distracted by all the vintage...
After lunch mama and I stopped into Rays Ragtime. I don't really have good luck there, as most of the "good stuff" (30s, 40s, 50s) is out of reach and has to be requested. Understandable seeing as a lot of people come in there to play dress up, but walking out the door we saw a lot of dresses we would have tried if we had seen them!
Anyway, I did find a real gem, a creamy late 30s hat, that is the shape I've been searching for. I was looking for this style hat on the displays behind the counter, and bumped into the cheaper hats on a rack. One tumbled down and as I placed it back on its perch, I saw this one. Like a ray of felted sunlight. See? Things find me. All I have to do is be clumsy.
