A Vintage Car Club Visits

| 0 comments

A few weeks ago, a group came into the shop looking for 20’s-30’s clothes. They were part of a vintage car club called ACD, which stands for Auburn Cord Duesenberg. These are cars that were made in Auburn, Indiana  in the late 20’s till 1937. The club restores and enjoys these beautiful examples of pre-war American design, then they get together, dress in outfits of the era and hold all sorts of events. They travel around the country in these restored roadsters and then all converge in Indiana once a year. How fun!

This past Saturday, a group of them caravanned to the shop, looking for period outfits. The cars were absolutely pristine, the better to enjoy their voluptuous Art Moderne rounded lines. I was mostly inside the shop, pointing out the 30’s hats and dresses I had set aside for them, but I was able to step out to snap these photos:

I am a vintage clothing shop owner living and working in rural north Florida. I believe in adding a little vinegar and molasses to my greens, having my coffee outside whenever possible, and mixing something vintage into every room and every outfit.
