Lost Girls Vintage
The Lost Girls Vintage Debut at Paperish Mess was a networking success. We arrived around 7:30 to seeof The Lost Girls turning around Winnie (short for Winnebago) so it could face against traffic on the other side of the street which definitely drew the attention of passing patrons last Friday evening as the sun set. Winnie a bright orange RV with Charlie brown like wavy lines painted on the side decorated with patio lights is the mobile store for Lost Girls Vintage. Lost Girls Vintage is a Chicago-based mobile vintage boutique housed in a 1970s RV, popping up around the city and around the country. Lost Girls specializes in vintage clothing/accessories for men and women, with an emphasis on wearable pieces – think fun patterns, bright colors, and unique details. Kyla of TLG introduced herself and gave us a run down on what was going on as Sarah the birthday girl was getting her hair done in the back. Not knowing anyone initially we strolled through the venue to check out the store. Paperish Mess is a new storefront art gallery located in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village neighborhood. Paperish Mess is a retail space showcasing original artwork in a variety of mediums and styles, as well as handmade goods and wares by independent artists. The shop carries artwork, prints, & designer wears from tons of local designers making it feels like an art museum of creative goodness. The owners are pretty Rad and definately the type of indie business owners we live to meet and network with. After doing a walk through grabbing some of the tasty mango sangria and a few bites of fondue we started looking in detail at the artwork instore, to say the least they have great atste in artist. After meeting The Lost Girls, the owners of Paperishmess & Ginger Snaps Media, our friend Thriftaholic, Inc. shows up and we laughed our asses off about lots of randomness. The night ended with a happy birthday to Sarah of TLG who had a pretty damn cool cake BTW and a farewell to all of our new associates.
Thanks for inviting us out to participate in the lovely atmosphere of indie business & creative minds.
