This is my stylin' 'do. Admittedly, not as fabulous as Miss Cherry Capri (then again, who is?), but it's a start!

Haggling for a Better Price on Vintage Furniture?

Does anyone have any tips for haggling with a dealer for a better price? I'm interested in a piece I saw on a dealer's website, but it's a bit scuffed, and I think the asking price is too high. I'm really not very good at haggling or making deals. Has anyone successfully haggled for a lower price on...

Hmmm.... I bet Brini Maxwell would have a solution, and then she'd say "Now why didn't YOU think of that!"

Hi!

My name is Lyn, aka Retrovixen (in honor of one of my favorite vintage clothing stores that, sadly, went out of business). I recently found this site and was very happy to learn there are so many others who share my interest in MCM. I was trained as a costume and decorative arts historian, primarily...

Chococat Mid-Century Modern line

This might not really be fashion-related, but I thought the retro-fashion girls might also be Hello Kitty fans like me. Has anyone else seen the new line of Chococat (friend of Hello Kitty) merchandise? It features Chococat in his Mid-Centruy Modern apartment. He has an Eames chair, a George Nelson ...

I am!

I love Go-Go boots! I found a pair in a vintage clothing store about 8 years ago, in exactly my size, for $15! It was my all-time best lucky find ever. Now all I need is an occasion to wear them. I'll take a digital photo of them and post it soon. Lyn "Everyone makes fun of the Puupli kids. How I ha...

Thanks for the advice on how to upload the images

Hi Tikifrog and SDR, Thank you for taking the time to post replies to my message. Your advice worked. I hadn't realized that the second img at the end of the URL had the backslash. Sometimes when I press the Img button, it didn't work, but if I manually type [img]at%20the%20beginning%20of%20the%20UR...

Mid-Century Modern scene in Boston?

Hi Lotta Livin' Friends, I just discovered this website today and I'm so glad that I did. I love Mid-Century Modern furniture and fashions, and until now was unaware of an online community such as this through which to learn about events, online stores, etc. I moved to the Boston area two years ago,...
