Calivintage Closet Raid at PrettyPenny
We love a good vintage piece, but unfortunately don’t always have the time to spend searching for those hidden gems. If you’ve found yourself in the same boat, then this event is just for you. Local blogger Erin Hagstrom of Calivintage – who has a seriously covetable array of garb from years gone by – will be selling off a selection of said pieces at Pretty Penny in Oakland. Expect lots of adorable mod pieces (a big trend for Spring), baby doll dresses, and beautiful blouses from her amazing archive. And you’ll get to take home your purchase in an adorable printed tote! WHEN: Friday, October 12 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM WHERE: Pretty Penny – 5488 College Avenue, Oakland
