One of the best things about social media? That it’s social and brings people with similar interests together to make a community! I met Caitlyn from AAVintedge over Instagram when I first joined the site–turns out we have similar interests (fashion, vintage, red wine) and similar lives (TX to LA and back) and she was incredibly supportive in the launch of this site! I’ve bought from her multiple times online, but she recently hosted a pop-up at her brick and mortar store in Tyler, TX; my schedule lined up so I was able to go–and y’all, it was love!
Caitlyn curates and runs the shop with her mom Lori, better known as ModMelrose, and they sell great vintage finds, custom caftans (made by Lori), amazing vintage denim, and art/furniture! The pop-up featured local artists,vendors and musicians and was such a lovely day–I met and made so many friends!
If you’re not lucky enough to get to the shop in Tyler you can find AAVintedge online here and they have upcoming shows at the Houston Flea (May 7th) and Bulladora in Dallas in June! And of course on Instagram @aavintedge
Any way you can–find her, following are just a few reasons I love Cait and AAVintedge so much–and I think you will too!
Great Vintage, Great Prices
The shop offers a fab selection of vintage pieces (like this Valentino I scored!) but the prices aren’t going to break the bank–and she has every thing from clothes to shoes to bags and great sunglasses!
Caitlyn is truly a denim whisperer–she can tell what will look great on you and will have a pair that seem tailored. With vintage denim being so “in” you will be blown away by the selection of jeans and cutoffs the shop has!
Lori, or @ModMelrose, makes all of the caftans (and some jumpsuits) that the store sells. They are simply gorgeous (I currently have 3 and live in them)–some are made with vintage fabric, some have sleeves, but you have to have one!
But the best thing about AAVintedge? Caitlyn and Lori! They are truly special and kind–and great stylists as well! I hope you check them out and love them like I do!
