Come find us at the Hester Holiday Market 12/17-21

We will have tons of holiday gift ideas (hats, scarves, bags, ugly christmas sweaters...) or you can be selfish and get yourself something nice.  ;)

Get your Halloween costume at our warehouse!

As a vintage clothing wholesaler, ordinarily I am by appointment to wholesale buyers only.  But Halloween is a special holiday, so in honor of all the kindred spirits who like to get their costume on, I'll be opening my doors to the public Tuesday - Thursday from 4 - 8 pm all October, including the 31st for any serious slackers. 

Not for the faint of heart, this is a true vintage warehouse - nothing is on hangers as it is intended for large volume customers.  Everything is in categorized bins and easy to find, but you have to be willing to dig. 

My warehouse is in a brick building at 233 Norman Ave, on the corner of N Henry.  My door us up the stairs closest to the N Henry corner of the building.  I am cash only, so please come prepared. 

Come impress me with your costume ideas and I'll be happy to help you if I can.

Broadist hosts a DRV gift certificate giveaway!

Caroline in an awesome Dusty Rose Vintage leather vest

I'm so excited to announce this Dusty Rose Vintage gift certificate giveaway because I'm basically totally in love with  I've mentioned a few times how excited I get about "real" girls blogging about clothes.  When I first decided to start listing vintage online, I chose to use regular girls as models (check the "Women we think are great" tag for interviews with some really cool gals).  Fashion can feel like a party that only the under 18, under 120 lbs, over 5' 8" folks were invited to, so I get really stoked on all the ordinary "girl next door" girls who still totally geek out on clothes.  There's more of us than them, so why should we be so underrepresented?

I was super stoked to meet Caroline (one half of at our Fashion's Night Out party.  We secured our cred with her because the event was a fundraiser for the amazing lady-positive group, Permanent Wave, and she got points from us for being dressed super bad ass and then winning our styling photo contest with this great getup from our stash. Mutual lady love and respect!

Seriously, how could she not win?

This was the DRV dress she chose as her prize.  Adorable, right?

To win the $40 Dusty Rose Vintage gift certificate, simply reblog this blog post.   But you can also get extra entries by following us on Twitter, Pinterest or Facebook.  The winner will be selected on Monday, April 30th.  Until then you can also use the coupon code 'broadist15' for 15% off anything in the shop


Win a DRV gift certificate Selective Potential's blog!

I've known of Tieka basically as long as I've known of any fashion blogger.  I was always drawn to her slightly more quirky, slightly less strictly commercial style.  So now that I'm about to open my vintage wholesale warehouse in Brooklyn and have been dedicating a little more focus to selling online as well, I instantly thought of Selective Potential as a perfect blog to host a giveaway. 

There will be a few places to nab a Dusty Rose Vintage goodies and/or gift certificates, so I'll be keeping you posted as the opportunities arise.  To enter to win a $30 gift certificate on Selective Potential, follow the instructions on this blog post

Enjoy her mad style and stay tuned for updates on the new space.  It's all more than I can possibly bare to share at the moment, but when I'm feeling less overwhelmed I'll start to spill some beans. 


DRV handbag giveaway at Green House of Fashion

I'm a fan of eco fashion in pretty much all forms.  I'm not the crazy idealist I was in my teens believing that consumption had to stop at all costs.  I now see that it's much more about the mechanisms of creation than the end result of consumption.  This is pretty much the reason I do what I do.  Buying vintage means giving new life to something.

When I met Zanna at Green House of Fashion I was pretty excited to find a blog that shared my interest in the cultivation of beautiful things that leave a small carbon footprint.  I'm hoping the whole world's modes of production slowly start moving toward non toxic, biodegradable, repairable, reusable...  But as much as I shy away from the soap box, the problem won't be fixed if we ignore it. 

I love to see people exploring the issues from a place of appreciation for the positive things happening rather than only focusing on anger for what isn't happening.  Green House of Fashion is a great place to find reverence for a job well done. 

I'm excited that Dusty Rose Vintage has the chance to do a giveaway with such an inspirational blogger.   This adorable mahogany leather handbag is up for grabs.  Here's how to enter:

1.  Friend Dusty Rose Vintage on Facebook -

2.  Leave a comment on this post describing how you'd use the bag (how would you style it, what colors would you wear with it, etc.)

Entries accepted until midnight on Friday, April 20th.  The winner will be randomly selected on April 21st.  Zanna will email you for address information. 

 I love the pink sunnies - such a great touch!

Playing dressup with stylist Stefany Mohebban

Diane Fres top available HERE

I have a special place in my heart for stylists who love vintage.  Stefany and I met and bonded specifically over this love, so when I heard about her new blog, Pretty In Thrift (see?  definitely my kind of fashion nerd!), I knew we needed to do a photo shoot. 

I asked Will Star, my favorite Greenpoint photographer, if he would do the outdoor portion of the shoot.  As you'll see from the photos, some of these looks were pretty steamy, so Stefany definitely got a lot of attention.  I saved some of my favorite pieces for this shoot, and here they are, all for you.  (You can also see more of Stefany's style expertise on her Tumblr).

World's most amazing jumpsuit (no hyperbole!) available HERE                           

60s mustard yellow shift dress available HERE
Snakeskin loafers available HERE,  Chistian Dior fishtail back blazer available HERE
80s lace peplum floral bustier available HERE
60s men's argyle robe worn as jacket available HERE
African safari tribal print midi skirt available HERE
This was a super fun shoot for me because not only does Stefany look incredible in everything, she's also pretty much up for anything (as demonstrated in the photo above - it was like 50 degrees and she stood out in the elements for at least twenty minutes at a time!).  Can't wait to bring you more looks with her!  Check out her blog for even more creative ensembles! 

Hayseeds Big City Farm Supply Pop Up

If you follow my social media you probably already know that I'm a big fan of the ladies behind Domestic Construction ("A multi-disciplinary design studio focused on redefining the ordinary.").  So I was pretty stoked when they told me about their plans to turn part of their work studio into an urban farm supply Pop Up shop for the spring. 

Hayseed's Big City Farm Supply shop is a collaboration between the lovely ladies at Domestic Construction, Brooklyn Grange, and Brooklyn Homesteader.   The shop will supply basically all you need to get your urban farm on - seeds, soil, tools, compost and even chicken and rabbit feed and beekeeping supplies!  It's literally a one stop shop if you are feeling the urge to test out your green thumb (unless you already happen to have one). 

And for those of us like me with no skills to speak of, there will also be classes, workshops and events about things like vermicomposting (I had never even heard of this), seed starting, garden planning, and yes, even beekeeping.   The jury's out on whether anyone will ever be able to teach me not to kill every plant I set foot near, but I feel like if anyone can do it, it will be this lot. 

So I was pretty excited to be asked to be a part of the pop up.
Of course the very first thing I thought of contributing were vintage overalls.  When out buying them, I managed to score this sassy little pair for myself. It's a shame you can't see my platform shoes that really rounded out the look. 

Meg Paska of Brooklyn Grange 

I wish I had taken more photos, but I was too busy actually enjoying the opening.  (Story of my life).  But if you live in NYC, I highly recommend that you head to 218 India Street in Greenpoint to check this out.  It's totally inspiring and I bet you won't be able to fight your desire to at least attempt to plant something.  It's going to be open through June so think about where you have some space to plant and get your butt down there!

Throwbacks - Vintage Hip Hop tees

For Sale HERE

Hip hop has changed pretty dramatically over the past few decades, but when I was growing up I remember being so impressed by the amount of creativity and skill crammed into each song.  Wu Tang songs were literally some of the best poetry I was reading back then.  So I was pretty excited when I came across this stash of vintage hip hop tees.  They all came together so it was clear that they all belonged to the same person. 

For sale HERE

It would be silly for me to claim that I was a hip hop head when I was a kid, tho.  I was way more metal so I was pretty stoked when Public Enemy did a collaboration with Anthrax.  Bring the Noise was an awesome song, no?  I also have a special place in my heart for them because I'm from Arizona.  I will never forget the year voters took Martin Luther King, Jr. day off the roster of business holidays.  It was a pretty crappy feeling, but listening to By the Time I get to Arizona helped a little.  Love these guys!  I went to see Chuck D speak in college and was totally crushed out.  And let's face it, Flava Flav is still hilarious and, um, entertaining?

For Sale HERE

Another piece of hip hop history...  It still really bums me out how f-n GOOD both Tupac and Biggie were.  It super sucks that they're not gone because can you imagine what they would have done with themselves if they were still around?  

For Sale HERE

Where I grew up, Fuct tees were the tees for the skaters who loved hip hop and vice versa.   Maybe it was the same for you too? 

I REEEAAALLLYYY wish that I had found a vintage Snoop Dogg tee in this little collection.  Not sure if I would have been able to let that one go though.  I've got a special place in my heart for that man.  And I think one of the reasons I'll always have the west coast in my blood is "There ain't no party like a west coast party cuz a west coast party don't stop!"

A true piece of graphic tee history

Roach Studios is an Ohio based t-shirt designer that started in 1962.  Graphic tees were actually pretty rare in the 50s and 60s.  There were military and college prints, but not much else.  Then some artists decided to start adorning tees themselves.  They were largely the daredevil set - surfers, racers, bikers and other extreme sport athletes.  

The guys behind Roach were well known and loved in their community.  They had quite a wide range of graphics, but when I found this one I knew it was special because instead of surfers or cars, it took a page from the Peter Max style of psychedelic and cosmic imagery.

Available HERE in our collection of vintage heritage tees on MARKET PUBLIQUE
