When walking into the Metropolitan Pavilion (125, 18th street) on April 25th, I was greeted by mounds of iconic vintage Louis Vuitton trunks and furniture. I always feel delightful weather brings me good luck, and today was no exception. It was 83 degrees out and I was entering the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show, said to be “the most fun you will ever have shopping.” How could I resist? Of course I couldn't, because courtesy of their website I scored 5 dollar coupons off the 20 dollar admission fee.
I ventured in on their second and last day, (their opening day being Friday the 24th) where over 80 vintage venders resided--yes over 80 different vintage shops had set up camp at the pavilion. The show returns October 9th and 10th, February 5th and 6th, then April 23rd & 24th of 2010, so mark you calendars girlies! As I began to snap away at the people and clothing within the massive gathering, I was practically assaulted by a vendor and forced to delete every picture taken. She claimed there was a massive sign in the front directing us to do no such thing, but when I went to verify the statement, I found no such evidence. I will just have to be absolutely creative and describe to you the scene through my words.
