We are so excited to announce that our friends, Erin & Jeannine, will be bringing their award winning School of Vintage shop to Art Star for a month long Pop Up in our exhibition space from October 26th through November 24th! The shop will be open during our normal store hours.
SCHOOL OF VINTAGE, LLC IS A VINTAGE AND HANDMADE BOUTIQUE LOCATED IN SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY. CURRENTLY, SOV OPERATES ONLINE, AND IN SURF CITY, LONG BEACH ISLAND. SOV IS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BETWEEN JEANNINE ERRICO AND ERIN BUTERICK; TWO YOUNG WOMEN WHO MET IN MICROBIOLOGY CLASS, SENIOR YEAR OF COLLEGE (HENCE THE NAME SCHOOL OF VINTAGE!). AFTER BONDING OVER CUTE SHOES AND FART JOKES, AN INSTANT FRIENDSHIP WAS FORMED AND SO WAS THE SHARED AMBITION OF OPENING A VINTAGE STORE. MUCH TIME HAS PASSED SINCE THOSE EARLY DAYS, BUT THE DREAM IS ALIVE AND THRIVING…
SOV HAND-SELECTS ONE-OF-A-KIND VINTAGE AND HANDMADE PIECES TO KEEP A VERY METICULOUSLY CURATED BOUTIQUE. JEANNINE AND ERIN BOTH HAVE VERY DIFFERENT STYLES AND TASTES FROM ONE ANOTHER BUT THEIR DISTINCTNESS YIELD A COLLECTION THAT IS ECLECTIC, TIMELESS AND APPEALS TO JUST ABOUT ANY DEMOGRAPHIC. AS FAR AS CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES, JEANNINE TENDS TO GRAVITATE TOWARDS PRIMARY COLORS, SHARP LINES AND STRUCTURED LOOKS WHILE ERIN ENJOYS SOFTER TONES, BOXY FITS AND CLASSIC TAILORING. DESPITE THEIR DIFFERENCES, THEY BOTH ADORE JUST ABOUT ANY STYLE OF DRESS FROM THE 40S AND 50S AND THEY ALMOST NEVER PASS UP THE OPPORTUNITY TO COLLECT ANTIQUE PIECES FROM THE 20S AND 30S. IN ADDITION TO CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES, SOV ALSO SELLS HOUSE WARES AND FURNITURE USUALLY WITH MID-CENTURY DESIGN AND FLARE.
Erin & Jeannine will be installing a mini version of their shop in our back gallery space. Customers can expect a sampling of wedding gowns, jewelry, LOTS of winter coats, some shoes, men’s vintage, women’s dresses, sweaters and handbags. Visit their website and Etsy page to get an idea of what you can expect to find.
