Some Pictures of Hope & Glory Vintage
We've been open for a week and would like to share some updated photos of our store (click on the partial images to see them in full size). We've already sold our favorite pieces and are scrambling to find replacements! We're honestly having a lot of fun while we're hard at work being creative and resourceful...it's almost like play, actually! The process is an ongoing one as items are sold and we acquire new things...there's always something to do and we never suffer from boredom. We are, however, sleep deprived (yawn). Oh my goodness! It's 4:31AM!
These photos show the diversity of our merchandise. We hope to offer something to please to just about anyone who enters the store...colorful, light-hearted items from the fifties, furniture that has been hand painted in lovely pastels, a nifty collection of dime store toys from the seventies, a candy counter filled with Pierrot Gourmand French lollipops, C. Howard's violet-scented mints, old fashioned favorites, like NECCO Wafers and Sugar Babies and free dog treats! We recently acquired a wonderful Marmet English baby pram...we think it's a seventies' vintage...with miles and miles to spare! We'll be adding a women's vintage clothing section as soon as we can, so that we can expand our existing ladies' department...cosmetics from the mid twentieth century, costume jewelry and lovely items to place upon your vanity.
Here's a picture of Bella our resident canine, sitting on my favorite green chair, patiently waiting for a friendly customer to visit. Come in and see us at 253 Washington Street, in Union Square, Somerville...just a stone's throw away from Somerville's Main Post Office, and sandwiched in between Taquieria La Mexicana and The Independent.
We hope to see you soon!
Deanna and Sandra
