Recapping the Boot & Trunk Spring Trunk Show!

Recapping the Boot & Trunk Spring Trunk Show!

Last night was simply amazing!  I was invited to a private vintage trunk show in Raleigh, NC hosted by Boot & Trunk.  This event was for the die-hard vintage lover offering unique, one-of-a-kind, high-quality gorgeous vintage finds.

Boot & Trunk is a vintage boutique and offers pop up events in the United States and United Kingdom.  What I love so much about this small business is that everything from clothing to accessories is hand-picked with care by the owner, Mary Liles who will literally travel to Timbuktu to find the absolute best vintage items there are on earth.  Mary finds are truly one-a-kind, and make you feel special knowing she has searched for the perfect items just for you.

The evidence is always clear when Mary has a trunk show that she has taken her time and inspected each item for perfection.  I don’t know exactly how she does it, but she manages to offer a constantly refreshed collection of gorgeous unique vintage at a great price.  I’m quite sure it’s time-consuming, which makes me appreciate her skill even more.  If you were to ever meet her and have a conversation, you’ll immediately gather she eats, sleeps and breathes the vintage lifestyle and is fulfilling her destiny!

I fell in love with all of the dresses and other summery items, as well as fabulous handbags and accessories which are perfect for spring and summer.

The atmosphere was extremely comfortable and relaxed which provided the perfect intimate shopping experience.  After all, us vintage lovers need to take our time to look, admire, and ponder what the story is behind each piece.

Attendees sipped on wine and enjoyed delicious nibbles.

One of my favorite things about the evening was running into vintage lover friends, and meeting new friends, such as these ladies enjoying their new treasures.

Her hat looks amazing and matches her dress perfectly!

Here are a few of my treasures from the trunk show. This gorgeous handbag had never been worn and was stuffed with newspaper dated 1968. It was a major score for me!

 

At the end of evening, this is exactly how I felt as I pondered how I would style my new found treasures.

You can reach Mary below.  Also stay tuned for her online shop coming soon to her website at Boot & Trunk and on Instagram.  I can’t wait until the next show!
