Last October I had the chance to visit (and yes, do some shopping) at the first Curated Collection market.  Wow – so many great vendors and vintage clothing treasures!!  You don’t want to miss the second Pop Up event that highlights exceptional vintage clothing and accessories to fill out the best of closets!  In conjunction with Modernism Week 2020, Mindy King (Palm Springs Vintage Market) and Mitchell Karp (Mitchells Palm Springs) have invited dealers from all over the country to showcase their goods for sale at the this vintage show. 

Lots of sellers, retailers and private dealers from around the country will be arriving in Palm Springs to showcase their finest vintage apparel, couture, textiles, jewelry and accessories.  Shoppers will find rare, iconic and authentic pieces to help catapult timeless fashions from the past into the modern world. Included in the collection are fashions for both men and women.  (And yes, they have lots of dressing room space to try on the clothing.)

Mitchell Karp owner of Mitchells Palm Springs vintage store says, “Vintage is so hot right now. Our collaboration is just what Palm Springs is missing. Furniture, architecture and now fashion. Just having a groovy little store will not put Palm Springs on the fast track for recognition in the vintage fashion world, so we are creating this event.”

Mindy King creator of The Palm Springs Vintage Market comments, “I hear from patrons of the vintage market all the time how there are incredible shows dedicated strictly to fashion. You’re an event producer, why don’t you do it? I took it to heart, and teamed with Mitchell to create it. This collaboration is the start of something big and we’re very excited!”
