Casey of Sydney, Australia bought this beautiful Gigi Young black and white striped dress that I referred to as the Ponytail Barbie Dress because it reminds me of what one of the original barbie dolls would wear. The dress fit Casey perfectly and she looked so pretty!

The lady in the photo posted above came into the store wearing the fabulous green and black faux fur coat. Then she found the rubber with black faux fur rain/snow boots and they fit her perfectly. I am so glad that they worked out for her! They made her already cute ensemble all the more cute!

Lulu's Vintage Store 3rd Anniversary

Three years ago today (October 25, 2010) I opened Lulu's Vintage store in Portland, Oregon. We had our grand opening party on October 23rd.

Posted below are photos from when I first opened the store. It's interesting to look back at these photos and reminisce about cool vintage items that I have sold and forgotten that I had. Also my store was sparse when I first opened. I feel that it still has the clean, colorful and curated look that I aim for, just with more merchandise.

I've sold all the structured purses posted above as well as the majority of the tops and dresses.

Lulus vintage store 2

My desk area looking sparse and much different than it's current look.

Before I opened I wished to sell vintage postcards of Portland and Oregon. Then soon before I opened I found all these dead stock postcards of Oregon along with the wood and metal postcard holder that they are displayed in.

All of the fabulous tooled leather purses, the rubber cowboy rainboots, and the clogs posted above have sold.

I loved the Roma bag posted above- but, resisted keeping it for myself. It sold soon after I opened the store.

Paris keychain

The above photo is of an Eiffel Tower keychain that two charming gentlemen visiting from Paris gave me.

A month ago I started keeping track of where people were visiting the store from.

The tally shows that I had customers from 37 different States (Oregon included), and 21 different countries.

Total From USA: 350 (not including Oregonians).

Alaska 1; Arizona 3; California 103; Colorado 5; Connecticut 2; Florida 16; Georgia 6; Hawaii 1; Idaho 6; Illinois 11; Indiana 5; Iowa 2; Louisiana 1; Maine 1; Massachusetts 8; Michigan 2; Minnesota 10; Mississippi 4; Missouri 3; Nevada 1; New Mexico 4; New York 44; North Carolina 4; Ohio 6; Oklahoma 4; Pennsylvania 10; Rhode Island 1; South Carolina 1; Tennessee 6; Texas 8; Utah 2; Vermont 2; Virginia 1; Washington 55; Washington D.C. 5; Wisconsin 6.

Total from Other Countries: 172.

Australia 19; Brazil 2; Canada 72; Chile 1; England 23; France 6; Germany 6; Holland 2; Italy 4; Japan 16; Lebanon 1; Luxembourg 2; New Zealand 2; Philippines 1; Russia 2; Spain 3; Sweden 6; Taiwan 1; United Kingdom 1; Ukraine 1; Wales 1.

These numbers represent who visited the store from August 25 - September 25, 2013. I wasn't able to ask everyone who came into the store where they were visiting from. These high numbers of visitors reflect that it was the end of Summer tourism season. There were also quite a few festivals drawing people to town like MusicFest NW, TBA, and Feast.
