I want to share the love this week. One of my favorite things about having vintage store are the stories that people share with me. They are stories from the closet and from the heart.
So I thought the perfect way to celebrate 5 years of RARE vintage would be to have a 5 Years 5 Gifts contest and for the next five days we will post a vintage gift a day. To enter send a photo of you in a favorite vintage piece or just a photo of your favorite piece and a little note why you love it, why you would never part with it, maybe why it would never part with you (I wrote awhile back about my nerd glasses from the 1980s. I can't lose them. No matter how hard I try and trust me I try!) You can share something your grandmother gave you, something you found in a thrift store for a steal, something you bought in Paris, (nothing from RARE vintage - no unfair advantages ; ) You can share a photo of something you covet but have not yet found... anyway I think you get the idea. On Saturday I will choose my top five favorite vintage stories and photos.
Please note that some of the photos and stories may be shared on our RARE vintage blog and/or on Facebook. Email your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org
Have fun! I look forward to seeing your photos and reading your stories! Share the love!
