The glint of sterling next to the vibrance of turquoise plays nicely with a soft and supple pair of worn leather boots. Pair this with intricate Southwest embroidery and an old graphic t-shirt and you have found yourself hunkered down with Southwest Vintage. I offer a shop filled with an ever growing collection of vintage clothing and accessories from the 40's to 90's all with and emphasis on a desert bohemian aesthetic and rooted in an infatuation with fashion.

How'd you celebrate Summer Solstice?
In between stalking thrift stores, estate sales and my other various sources for vintage pieces that capture my eye, I frequented the local swimming holes, dreamed of rain and protected my ginger skin from the intense sunshine. All the while never wanting to leave the dusty desert.

How'd you celebrate Summer Solstice?
With our first booth at a vintage & craft show; and during the summer we're going to a Disney World trip for our anniversary (and having as many Dole Whips as we possibly can), many, many treks to Pinkberry for delicious frozen yogurt and a possible trip out west to Southern California for Heather's birthday (maybe even a Disneyland adventure!) to close the season out!

My little shop is stocked with vintage midwestern clothing, accessories and housewares. I'm especially drawn to mod floral prints, cute dresses, kitsch and anything boho, western or prairie.

What'd you do for summer solstice?
I organized my ever-expanding vintage stash, read a lot of great novels, and ate as much s'mores ice cream as possible!

I am a sleep-deprived architecture student who uses hunting for vintage gems as a form of escapism. When my closet started to explode and it was clear that my vintage addiction was only getting worse, I started Ferris Wheel Vintage as a way to share amazing vintage pieces with everyone else. Also, I really didn't want to end up on the show "Hoarders." If you have any questions about me, my shop, or vintage clothing in general, I'd love to chat!

The Sarara Dame owns vintage because she likes to think a bit about her style. She is a trend setter. Vintage makes her think about who she is and what she loves. She enjoys fashion history and statement pieces, she's no wall flower. It’s important for her to add individuality to her wardrobe and fuel her passion for life.

What'd you do for summer solstice?
I used the longest day to catch up on all of the things on my do list! Tonight I'll celebrate by enjoying a cool drink in the breeze of the midsummer's night.

As a child, I thought of my bedroom as a tiny museum. My drawers were full of old books, papers, glassware, and magazines that I collected. As an adult, I came to appreciate the style and quality of vintage clothing. Zinnia Ridge Vintage is an eclectic collection of vintage from the 1910s through the 1980s. I am pleased to bring my findings to you!
