The Interpretation of Dreams

Let me get the door for you. Step into the shop and I'll show you around. Perhaps you will spy something that strikes your fancy, sets your heart aflutter, or sends you into paroxysms of acquisitive desire. There are many treasures to be found here.

Don't worry, your eyes will soon adjust. I find that the amber glow coaxes rhinestones, pearls, and beads to flirt to best effect. Just look at how the satin shimmers and the lurex glimmers. Go ahead and stroke the velvet, let the silks seduce you. It's a veritable garden of vestimentary delights.

How long have I been a purveyor of vintage finery? Well, let me see...not nearly so long as I have dreamed of it. Do you know the dreams I mean? The ones in which you discover a room in your house that you didn't know was there. And you walk in to find you have stepped back in time, into a private boudoir brimming with beautiful things from a bygone era. And it feels like home.

Those were my dreams. And this shop is my dreams come true.

Some may think it decadent to delight in all this frippery. They are not like you and me. They do not share our deep appreciation for the designs, details, ornament, and craftsmanship of quality vintage apparel. They do not realize that wearing vintage is sassy, sophisticated, and a gorgeous way to be green.

Travel back in time with Past Posh Vintage and indulge your inner glamour girl.
