So I've decided to bring back Friday posts on occasion, just to promote special weekend events going on in Winnipeg.
First up is vintage dealer Rachael, the lovely gal behind Nettie + Min, who will be at The Goodwill's first Trading Post (alongside 15 other vendors) this Sunday, February 22nd from 12 to 5. Rachael's been collecting and selling vintage clothing under the name Nettie + Min for the past six months or so, but she's long had a passion for vintage clothing - dressing herself in second-hand finds and working at other vintage shops for years.
Rachael's pieces come from all over the place: friends and family with great items they no longer have use for, her connections with other vintage dealers in the city, and many others she snapped up while on a three-month trek through Europe last year.
Her things are lovely, beautifully curated and unique. I highly recommend checking her out if you get a chance to stop by the Traders Post. She'll be on the stage alongside Alex Kohut from The Vintage Saint, who sells vintage men's clothing. You can also buy from Rachael through her Etsy shop, or keep up with her on Instagram to check for weekend sales at her studio in the Frame Arts Warehouse in the Exchange District.
The Trading Post promises to be a great event. Listen to DJ Tiny O spin vinyl while sipping coffee or beer and browsing new and vintage clothing, leather and baked goods, ceramics and art, and even some reclaimed mid century pieces. There will also be Tarot Card readings for 20$. Hope to see you there!
