This Sunday: AC Clothing and Bags Clearance Sale in Berkeley!

Hey friends! If you missed my pop-up shop at Mercy Vintage last week, here’s your chance to get some super-clearance pieces: I’m clearing out oodles of my ready-to-wear clothing since I’m switching over to mostly offering custom pieces (bags, hot pants, and vintage wool scarves will continue to be available ready-to-wear) and taking a rack to my buddies’ yard sale. They’re selling super cool collectibles, housewares, clothes, etc, since they’re hip people of taste!

Sunday, May 26th, about 9:30 am onward, on Euclid between Virginia and Hilgard

Hope to see you there! – Amy

Introducing a new design by AC Clothing and Bags: The Kristin Skirt!

Vintage Print Elastic Waist Skirt by Amy Cools

Hello friends of AC,

Here’s my new design, I’m super excited about it!

The Kristin Skirt – AC Clothing and Bags 

This oh so comfy and oh so flattering, playful skirt is created from my collection of fabulous vintage fabrics, cut full with an stripe insert of a contrasting print, with deep full pockets for free and easy wear, topped with a wide matching or contrast color elastic waistband. 

I named this style for my dear friend Kristin, who loves beautiful colors and whimsical prints, is a marvelous sportswoman and dancer, and always dresses in a manner that never skimps on beauty, comfort, and function!

Come one, come all!

Hello friends!

Come down and see me in a couple of weeks, at my first out of studio sales event in a long while…. wait, has it been a few years? Three? How time flies! Anyway, I’m excited to get out there again, going back to university was like stepping into an alternate world for a time.

So come hang out with me and see what I’ve been creating. There’ll be snacks and wine!

At Mercy Vintage on Piedmont Ave, 6 – 9 pm on Thursday, May 16th.

love, Amy
