"Hot Vintage Time Machine!"-Digging Through The Past...For Clothes!

Psss...Come close. Nah come closer, I gotta a secret to tell ya. You know that penthouse the Block Association used for the "Flashing Lights" private photo shoot event? Well I never told to the story behind how I came to discover that space huh? Legend has it that the owner to THAT spot is the go to person for THIS same spot I'm about to now tell you about. Now it has NO official name, but the address is 231 W. 29th St 3rd flr. (betwn. 7th & 8th ave.) and what it is exactly is a whole loft space full of vintage/costume clothing ripe for the picking! Let me tell you folks, no lie, stuff packed to the gills! Ceiling to floor! I was SO overwhelmed on my 1st visit I had to pause to take a breather before I walked back in! It's ALOT of stuff folks! Good thing is the more you buy (in bulk) the cheaper the price can be worked out in your favor. Sad thing is they're NOT open on the weekends you best be getting there before or STRAIGHT after work, if you have an good sense. LOL. I made a quick call to my go to style guru Toni "Da Tiger" Renee to make some sense out of some choice pieces we found. Think the last scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and you pretty much get what I'm describing what this looks like exactly! I totally forgot this first models name, but she knows who she is (wink) lol! If you go, tell Ashley (the owner) the Minority Report sent cha for 0% discount on EVERYTHING!

I can not believe this place! I heard about this through the grapevine from this designer dude. It is off the hook. The prices are so low I walked out with bags of clothes for 200 bucks.
