Monday March 27 at Vickie's Vintage
Vickie and her staff have been working hard to bring in Spring inventory intoVickie'sVintage.
Richelle has stopped by for a visit, while the store isn't open until Tuesday.
Richelle: The Open Houses were a success and we had at least fourteen contracts on the townhouse and nine on the mansion. It was crazy. They are still sorting through the bids and seeing where it all ends.
Vickie: Well that is great for the whole neighborhood, seems the Hotel remodel has really started a huge change for the neighborhood. I think Trish has contracted for a store front down the block beside the garden center. It's not very big, but there is a huge garage behind in the alley, with a mini-studio.
Richelle: Oh, that will be great for Trish. She spends too much time in her truck. I'm just happy to have some time off, since the remodels were so crazy.
Vickie: How's married life treating you and Ryan. Have you found a place yet?
Richelle: (sighing) No, we keep getting outbid on anything in our price bracket. The market is still insane. I think we will have to settle for a pitiful fixer-upper, only live in it as a fixer. We might have a chance at a one bedroom at the Grand View(Barbie Grand Hotel remodel), if Ken gets a different place.
Richelle: We are really tired of living in a basement.
Elle: Oh, me too, I finally found a hole in the wall to share with a friend, it's so tiny though. Vickie, how about a steam punk hat for this dress, and maybe a skirt swag?
Vickie: How about you do a steam punk vacation couple downstairs, for when we open---or explorers?
El: Hmmmmm..., maybe!
Vickie: (turning to Richelle) I can imagine, still in a basement? How crowded is it at that rental?
Richelle: Well, there's Ryan and I in the basement with Ken. Not so bad, Ken stays at the hospital half the time. Midge, Barbie, Chelsea, and we even had Mulan and Sindy for a week, while they were showing the mansion.
Sindy hopes to take Lara's condo right above the bakery when the next BMR project allows Lara to move on. Mulan is looking for a storefront to start her own design business with a partner, with possible sleeping quarters.
Elle: I'm going to make sure I turned the lights off in the basement.
Everything is set for Spring.
Spring shoes are all set up!
Pastel cotton dresses, now if it will only warm up!
Richelle: I can't wait to see the Guys and Resort boutique downstairs. When are you going to open.
Elle: Thursday this week. We are still waiting on one more shipment it is supposed to arrive tomorrow, then we will be set.
Richelle: Great! Ryan definitely needs a few things. He's back to the office at least three days a week, and well, he has gained a bit of weight since we are married, so his office clothes are a bit tight.
Elle: I'm sure we will have some great 'couture', (lol) for him.
Richelle: Well, it is always great shopping at Vickie's. i may have to have those shoes and purse, such a pretty shade of blue for Spring!
Diorama: Vickie's Vintage designed and made by me.
All fixtures are thrift store finds, or crafted from such.
Search Vickie's Vintage for posts on fixtures.
Clothes and accessories: 90% of all the clothes and accessories were found in thrift shops. It's hard to identify things, when you find them here and there and not together in 'sets'.
Vickie was a thrift shop find and is in Vintage 90's Barbie top and Sparklz leggings.
Richelle was also a thrift shop find, she is in leggings from my doll club, a vintage shell(90's) and a Fashion Fever cotton jacket.
Elle is a Mattel New Look (first wave) petite, she is wearing Sparklz outfit.(and she is really short-lol)
Wedding Dress: Vintage 90's, was in a dress pack.
Spring Dresses: are all Vintage Mattel, (one is Bugs Bunny the other two are from the 90's fashion packs, I believe.
Are your dolls ready for Spring?
