Feeling 1980s Today (Pacman Fever Friday)!

It’s Pacman Fever Friday at Joystix Houston tonight! It happens twice a month, but I usually only hit up the one on the last Friday, and it’s my favorite day of the month! Jammin out to some 80s electro this morning to get started right!

I Freakin Love This Shirt!

Stumbled across this beauty today. I think I am waay more excited about this shirt than I should be, but  I’m in love with it. I’m so tempted to keep it for myself!

Just a shop photo…

Did some reorganization up at the shop this weekend. It looked so pretty, we decided to use some photos of it as a cover on Facebook and also on the Etsy shop. I added the top rack, to display handmade t-shirt pillows, and we added some shiny new signage as well. Come out and visit us inside Retropolis in Houston, or at the Etsy shop any time! http://www.etsy.com/shop/jswvintage

Some Brand New Stuff In Today

Got a whole lotta good stuff in today! A couple items right here are just a taste, and haven’t even been put out for sale yet. They are couple pieces of super-cool 80s skiwear: a striped knit sweater by Downhill Racer, and an ultra stylish red vest by Roffe Skiwear.

A Weekend Find For the Personal Book Collection

I don’t buy too many books, as I just can’t often find the time to read. I’m a huge fan of Dostoevsky, and I always search out older copies of his stuff. I’m not sure I could call myself a huge fan of Tolstoy, but I can say that, The Death Of Ivan Ilyich goes down as one of my favorite stories of all time. I stumbled across this 1950s copy of The Cossacks this weekend, and I just had to have it. There’s nothing terribly unique about it, but I love it!

Spring Break 2016 Shopping & Road Trip!

On Friday we hit up some of our usual shopping spots, which were abnormally crowded due to spring break, but we definitely came away with some great purchases. I even picked up a fabulous vintage navy Dooney & Bourke bucket bag for myself at a steal for 22 bucks. Even though we knew the spring break crowd wouldn’t be our usual scene, we decided to hit the beach anyway.

Good thing we did, because we side tripped it to a pretty fantastic little antique store where we picked up a nice haul of vintage clothes from a variety of eras (50s, 60s, and 70s mostly). As you can see from the photo we stocked up on more spring & summer clothes in a variety of colors and patterns. The dresses are pretty rad and very psychedelic, and would be great for any of the upcoming music festivals! All and all it was a good weekend for a quick little trip.
