A cozy sweater day at afterglow vintage

If you’re like me and live in a seaside town, early evenings turn chilly fast as that fog rolls in, and it stays gray and chilly ’til late morning the next day. And of course, I get to share my great vintage finds with the world here in my online shops!

So today I’ll be listing some great little sweaters¬†at afterglow vintage!

Soon to be listed: a 1980’s striped Gitano sweater with slashed sleeves in bright colors; a beautifully embroidered wool ruffle cuff dark blue Herman Geist sweater; a bold red and black treble clef print in lightweight knit, 1970’s chevron striped multicolor vee neck fitted sweater by Bananas (‘Knits with Appeal!’), a coral Designer’s Originals classic mod sweater, and more…

I’ve created a new Pinterest Board: vintage clothing for curvy, plus size women, featuring pieces featured in my own Etsy shop as well as other online vintage clothing shops.
Curvy women are generally under-served, I believe, by the American fashion community; this is my own small contribution to balancing that out

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
