What a year!!

Looking back at the past year of A Vintage Affair it is a bit of a whirlwind experience. What started off as a pop-up shop in a gorgeous Beltline store ended up as our permanent location. We never dreamed that would happen & we are so, so glad it did!!

We sure had a lot of parties...we just like having people over for a glass of wine on a regular basis!! Whether it was a launch party, Retro Hair School Class private shopping night or Block Party...we enjoyed seeing our regular customers and made lots of new friends. 

We participated in several fun out of store events like Vintage Chicks, two East Village sales,  the PARK sale and were sponsors for the The SWAP Team and The Al Capone Charade by Toe Tappin' much fun getting out of the shop and taking it on the road.
One of our funnest projects all year was working with our talented friend Tara Whittaker to produce some great photos in preparation to launch our Vintage Bridal Collection (stay tuned for more on that in the near future). We also formed A Spoonful of Vintage, a group of like minded vintage loving wedding vendors and we look forward to more projects with them!

So, thanks to all of you who stop by to say hello, try on a frock, admire the jewellery, buy your "dream dress"...without your support we couldn't have done it!!

And....of course we will be having a party next month to celebrate our One Year Anniversary, more on that to come!!!!

Hope to see you soon,
Bonnie & Theresa
