Greetings! The weather outside is frightful for those of us on the East Coast so I hope everyone is being safe. I want to tell you about a fun vintage shop to visit when the Sandy leaves us for good.
Brandi Foster’s boutique, My Dear Vintage is located on 3610 Falls Road in Baltimore, MD. Upon arriving at the store you may think it’s not there but there are signs in the windows. You’ll find it on the second floor of Lovely Yarns which is owned by Ms. Sue Caldwell. Since 2010 Brandi had been selling clothing through her online shop of the same name but decided to establish a physical location to set up shop this past June. I was actually on her online store looking at a pair of pant’s with an elephant print when I called her after reading she opened the boutique. I placed the pants on hold and headed over there to check out everything in person because she made it known there was a lot more than what I could see on my screen.
My Dear Vintage sells hats, bags, shoes, accessories, dresses, and any other article of clothing you’d expect to find at a boutique. Her prices are by far some of the best I’ve seen in my travels, starting at $3 and going up from there. There are several prints, cuts, and styles in there to look through. I was actually kind of reluctant to blog about the shop because you know I love my prints and who doesn’t like to keep their favorite things to themselves? Brandi is friendly and offers great customer service. She can be found in her store working but feel free to chat with her as she is never too busy for her customers. She seeks to expand once her business becomes more profitable and I’d like to see that happen for her. All you have to do is stop in and I guarantee the items in front of you will do the rest of the work (well… you’ll have to purchase them of course). She does a really good job choosing the pieces that go on her racks. For a glimpse of what you can expect to find in the boutique check out her online store here.
Below you will find a few pictures of my fitting room trials…
Brandi and I had the toughest time trying to get my petite frame in this dress. We came to the conclusion that it is probably for a child because it wouldn’t close and as you can see it bunches under my arms. I was uncomfortable and we still had to get me out!
Take a look at these wild boots one of her customers left out with for $10! Patent the the texture and gold chain, love! Can’t believe she entertained the thought of leaving them behind because the space around her ankle.
There’s always that one thing other people can’t get in that I manage to fit and these pants were it but they didn’t fit right. This MJ thriller inspired top was in my pile to purchase but I had to stay within my budget. Overall great trip!
If you’re ever in her neck of the woods, please stop in and check things out! Purchase a thing or two and send me a picture of what you picked up! Follow the store on Twitter @mydearvintage for information on upcoming discounts and events!
