Welcome to There’s No Place Like Vintage! Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy….the list goes on. These are some of the names I learned when I was just a child. Watching their movies and hearing them sing started me on the path of my love of The Golden Age of Hollywood and from there, vintage items. I would try to collect as many pictures and memorabilia as I could of these glorious stars.
My grandma Reenie and great-grandma Mildred had a big influence on me as well. As a child I remember grandma telling me stories about their days in an “all-girl” orchestra. It sounded very exciting to me, and looking through their scrapbooks and seeing old pictures from the 1920’s and the beautiful costumes and clothing they wore, really enhanced my love of vintage.
Please feel free to read more about Mildred and Mareen or have a look at some of the vintage items I sell in my Etsy shop.
I hope you enjoy your visit here.
