The Dunedin Bumper Spring Selection

Spring proved to be a plethora of fun events – a literature launch, punk power, fashion for charity in a chapel and the Vintage Roundup. It was hard to keep up!

Dunedin’s Athenaeum Hosts The Winter Vintage Roundup

 

Who would have believed there was such a hidden architectural gem so close to the Octagon? Dunedin’s Athenaeum complex was built in 1861. It was named after Ancient Greece’s ‘Athenaion’, a venue used for poetry readings. More than 150 years later, the complex is being developed as a much-needed venue for the arts thanks to Lawrie Forbes, a developer of heritage buildings. What a fitting venue for yesterday’s well-attended Vintage Roundup. Thanks to Tannia Lee (organiser), all the stall holders and vintage shoppers for making it a splendid event!

Hooray! Dunedin’s Vintage Roundup Comes Round Again

Once again organised by fabulous fashion stylist Tannia Lee, July’s Vintage Roundup is being held in the Athenaeum building this Saturday, starting at 10am. It promises to be another great opportunity for vintage lovers to pick up gorgeous things from Otago’s finest vintage clothing specialists. It was so much fun last time that we couldn’t resist having our own stall again. We’re also very excited that ‘Two Squirrels Vintage’ will be there too.

Here’s a few of the goodies we’ll have on offer. Hope to see you there!

Fabulous Finds 8

 

The last few weeks have been surreal and exciting. Now it’s back down to earth with some bargains!

As usual, Two Squirrels Vintage in Milton has come up trumps with another lovely vintage dress, this time from the early 1940s. Closer to home, Maher shoes (in Wall Street Mall) really impresses with their unique and affordable footwear. New Zealander Glen Maher owns the company and designs all the shoes which includes the best men’s shoes around. The re-vamped and re-opened Dunedin Paper Bag Princess store is now run by a local and it shows! There’s some great bargains to be found for both vintage and designer lovers.

Playing Shop

 

We’re counting down to the start of iD Dunedin Fashion Week’s 15th Anniversary with so many incredible events to suit all tastes. First, there’s the iD Designer Sale at the Dunedin Railway Station. It will be buzzing! Alternatively, the Vintage Roundup (upstairs 27 Moray Place) is a must for the vintage and craft enthusiast. The event is being organised by the incomparable Tannia Lee of Most Wanted Vintage.

Both events are on Saturday and will show the diversity of what Dunedin has to offer. Not only do we intend to be at both, but we are running a one-off stall at the Vintage Roundup. Being enthusiastic amateurs, we’ve been playing shop! Take a look at what we’re selling. And we do have a few pieces of menswear.

The Vintage Roundup at The Old Lone Star, 7 September

Sixties swing, seventies psychedelia, 80s grunge, Madonnaesque power dressing – it was all there at the old Lone Star (Princes Street) last Saturday when The Vintage Roundup returned. And the crowds came! Once again, this spectacular event was organised by Tannia Lee of Most Wanted Vintage. We had so much fun foraging for goodies from stallholders whose interests were diverse and eclectic. As usual, most of them were Dunedinites but a few came from further afield.

Warren and Vanessa from Two Squirrels came all the way from the fringe of Central Otago. They moved there from Christchurch after the earthquakes destroyed one of their shops and put the other in the red zone. On a positive note, their new shop in Milton has its grand opening weekend on 5-6 October. We can’t wait!

It was lovely to see Liz King of King’s Emporium (Herbert, North Otago) here again. She has a great eye for beautiful dresses – we couldn’t resist buying another one! She’s also a bit of a sewer on the side.

Daisy, from Little Moon Designs, is based in Dunedin. Her eco-clothing line for children is inspired by her six year old daughter. She also loves hat making, especially since she finds it frustrating when hats don’t fit or spoil hair styles.

It was exciting to see the unveiling of Swish in the City which Tannia Lee has helped organise. It will be Dunedin’s first official clothing swap on Saturday 5 October at the Dunedin Railway Station! It promises to be an amazing event with live entertainment, spot prizes and a complimentary drink.

The weather was so incredible that vintage lovers spilled out onto Princes Street creating a hub of activity and excitement. It was very convenient having Purple Rain Cafe practically next door, giving shoppers the opportunity to grab a quick cup of coffee between purchases. Colourful, quirky mannequins lined the street and we were even entertained by a retro busker, who recited limericks.

Why wear vintage? There’s lots of good reasons. Quality, originality, affordability, nostalgia and indulging in your secret sartorial fantasy. We are lucky in Dunedin; there’s lots of good vintage to be found. This is what we bagged at the recent Vintage Roundup at Queens.

The Vintage Roundup at Queens Bar

Top quality vintage clothing and accessories were up for grabs, today, as Queens Bar metamorphosed into a kaleidoscope of colour and texture. Stallholders came from far and wide, from Herbert to South Otago, and Dunedin’s finest were there too! Tannia Lee from Most Wanted Vintage organised the event. Her meticulous attention to detail ensured that there was a style of vintage to suit everybody (even the boys) and that the day ran smoothly. The bar was open, serving coffee and beer to keep the thirst at bay. It was certainly hard to drag ourselves away!
