And thanks to Jesse Fox, amazing photographer and great friend of ours who took this picture of us that says “we mean business.” She was also voted best local artist for the 3rd year in a row! So many exclamation points!!!!!

Deadstock Baseball Shorts!

I found a box of these deadstock baseball shorts in our back room in blue, red, brown, grey, and green. Upon looking at them, I knew I would love the fit. The double button and thick waistband are constructed similarly to my favorite pants, American Apparel’s Riding Pants. I kept two pairs of these for myself, in red and forest green. Since we put them out, I have sold 3 pairs in one week to some super cute gals who will definitely be rocking these all summer. I love to pair them with a crop top, platforms and tons of metal jewelry. I love it when we get bulk deadstock items because then we can see multiple people around our city wearing the same thing. It’s how trends start!

Casablanca Vintage Does City Flea (S)mall!!!

On November 17th, the City Flea has an exciting event at the 21C Museum Hotel. Instead of rushing the malls and battling with greedy mainstream consumers, why don’t you come to the Small Mall and buy local and handmade goods? There will be so many amazing businesses there, including Casablanca Vintage. You can visit their website to see the full list of vendors. See ya there!

“CITY FLEA SMALL MALL / NOVEMBER 17th / 12 to 6 / 21c MUSEUM HOTEL

All of your favorite small businesses under one roof right before the obnoxiousness of the holiday shopping season tries to consume us all. Avoid the malls this year and start fresh with the “Small Mall”. 

Keep your dollars local and never have to hear the word ‘doorbuster’ again.”

1920s Style Headbands by Popular Request!

We’ve been getting requests for 1920s headbands. Headbands were a popular hair option with women in the 1920s, along with turbans, cloches, and hair jewelry. At a party, you are instantly recognizable as a flapper when you wear one with a shift dress, most likely beaded or fringed. Authentic 1920s headbands are next to impossible to find authentic and are too fragile to wear. These are reminiscent of the piece you’re drooling over online amongst the stock photos. Most people just want something they can pair with a simple LBD and they are good to go for a Roaring 20s shindig.

Closure of the Elmore Street Exit, I74 West

The city of Cincinnati is unfortunately closing the Elmore street exit, which is a popular way to get to Northside. You can still come visit our shop by coming one of either ways:

If you are traveling southbound on 75, take the Mitchell Avenue exit. Turn right off the exit. Take a left on Spring Grove. We will be on your left.

If you are traveling northbound on 75, take the Hopple Street exit. Travel east on Hopple until you reach Central Parkway and turn left. You will then Turn left onto Ludlow and go over the viaduct. We will be on your left right at the end of the viaduct.

We have sold several of these deadstock fleece sweatshirts over the past week. Before North Face was making their iconic fleece outerwear, Old Navy had “Performance Fleece” for those who were ’90s kids. Even before THAT, Le Tigre had some pretty sweet fleeces to choose from in the 1980s. We have deadstock from a few other brands as well!
Image

The best part about these is they are unisex! Gals have been trying them on with leggings and boots for a cute fall look. They are great on men with jeans and sneakers.

The collar detail varies depending on which one you choose. We have to say, they are pretty creative.
