How To Care For Vintage Clothing

I recently had a woman buy a pair of jeans from me and three weeks later is returning them because of one wash. I was stuck between a rock and a hard space because on one hand, I also washed these jeans and nothing happened but on the other hand, I want to do what…

Vintage Influencers: Paul Poiret

Tea in an Old Town

In celebration of a colleague’s retirement, we gathered at Teaberry’s in Flemington (New Jersey). It was my first time there and I just thought it would be your typical tea (maybe more like coffee) place. It wasn’t and I was highly pleased with my experience. It brings old time charm to the simple idea of…
