MYSTERY VINTAGE HAVEN, ASTORIA QUEENS
As most of you know, vintage/thrifting is my haven. There is nothing that makes me happier than rummaging through someone's discarded treasures. I find the most interesting pieces and believe there had to of been an amazing woman behind these treasures I come across.
I went up to Astoria to visit Karen and she took me on quite the journey. This little nook had so many beautiful wonders- I only assumed there would be a price tag to match. I was wrong. So wrong. Most of my favorite finds were under $100 which was BAFFLING. I literally wanted to scoop up every single piece and march myself home and decorate my room in all these treasures. My most favorite find were the clip-on earrings. The selection was astounding and so inexpensive. Karen and I both found such unique little gems. Thank god for her finding this treasure cave.
If you happen to be in Queens, head up to Astoria. Visit Pin Up Queens (it's on a small street adj. a main stretch of road. look for the dress hanging outside the front stoop) End your day with a slice of mud pie at The Neptunes Diner.
Yeah, it was the perfect Sunday.
