Vintagey Events Happening in 2014 in New York

There are a few great events happening in and around New York during springtime.

Last month I attended the Manhattan Vintage Show for the first time and I just loved it. It was soooo great to see so many vintage things in person. You can read more about it HERE.

Chiller Theater may not seem like a likely place for vintagey things to happen but it does! It is a meeting place of sorts where you can meet and greet stars of yesteryear and I have been to this event three times and I have a blast each time. In the past I met and spoke to some of the cast of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the cast from Denise the Menace, Patty Duke, and many others. You can read more about my Chiller adventures HERE and HERE.

BeautyCon is a hair and makeup convention that usually happens in California and is usually not open to the public. Last year they opened to the public in L.A. and this year they are coming to New York and again opening to the public.

I am not a big hair and makeup fan but I have been slowly falling in love with all of it thanks to vintage. I think its a big deal that they are here in NY this year. I also thought well how neat would be it to get information on new products and share them with my vintage sisters!! I think this event will be smashing!

The Met (as New Yorkers refer to it) will be having an exhibit of Charles James who was a 20th Century American courtier. This event look like a feast for the eyes for a fashion loving or vintage loving person. What a fantastic exhibit this will be!

I will be attending all of these events and am super excited to be doing so! I will also be keeping my eye on more vintagey events happening in or around New York and will share with you if I hear of any others.

There are also two other events happening in New York:

Fashion Institute of Technology will be having an exhibit on the Elegance in an Age of Crisis: Fashions of the 1930s from February 7, 2014 - April 19, 2014.

TCM is still having FREE events to help celebrate their 20th Anniversary. It's important to check this LINK often to see what is happening around town. My husband and I went on a FREE movie tour last month so it is definitely worth looking into!

I hope you are able to attend one or all of these events if you are in town.
