Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show

What’s going on here? Hundreds of New Yorkers, shopping bags in hand, are waiting in a line that snakes down 18th Street, causing sidewalk traffic jams. You can almost feel the electricity in the air -- that special high dedicated shoppers get when they’re on the scent of a wonderful “find.” Well, this season the secret is out. Those patient gate-gatherers are waiting for their first crack at the Manhattan Vintage clothing Show. And this fall it’s all about being “Fashion Smart” and having fun when the show returns to the Metropolitan Pavilion, Oct. 9 and 10 for a two-day event that is billed as “the Most fun You will ever Have shopping.” And, what fun it is! The show is packed with booth after booth of great “finds” -- vintage fashions that look as though they came straight off the runway , only at a fraction of the price of store look-alikes and designer originals. The Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show is where fashion ideas are born. Over ninty exhibitors present the best of the past --silhouettes and trends that are as current today as they were when they came off the designer’s sketchpad. And in a time when so many of us are stretching our clothing budget -- in fact, straining it at the seams -- this is where you will find designer fashion at prices that won’t put you in debt. AHH I CAN'T WAIT go to their website here :)

Thanks for pointing out that a lot of the stuff there is actually quite cheap. I think some people hear 'Manhattan vintage' and assume everything's overpriced. Not so!
