Alicia Pierro's Profile
I am simply a vintage-obsessed girl living in Buffalo, NY. I buy so much of it; sheesh!
My fascination with vintage clothing all started with a purse, when I was about 18 years old. While on summer vacation, my mother took me to a wonderful vintage boutique where I admired a pretty 50s frame bag that was hanging on the wall. It was trimmed in leather, and displayed a large, perfect needlepoint rose on each side. When I expressed my interest aloud, the owner of the store took it down and told me I could have it for free, since the leather was cracked. Her kindness, combined with the fact that this item was so rare and special to me (there was only one of it in the whole world!) sparked a passion for vintage that grew and grew over the years.
Other people's cast-offs are treasures for me, and I know there are many like-minded gals out there. If you are like…
