The recently launched Vintage Fashion Pop-Up is taking shopping to a new level. One weekend a month, 4-5 vintage fashion sellers set up a collective shop in Lakewood. Their shop offers a curated selection of affordable vintage finds in a modern boutique environment. 

There is a growing trend towards wearing vintage clothing. It’s an affordable, eco-friendly way to express individuality and embrace new trends. There is a cool factor in having a unique vintage find. Street style bloggers incorporate vintage into their looks. Fashion designers find inspiration in vintage for their new collections. “Marc Jacobs, Cole Haan, Eugenia Kim and Zimmermann have bought pieces from my Etsy shop, Only The Best,” said Heather Sapanos, founder of Vintage Fashion Pop-Up. Costume designers buy vintage as well, even if it’s not a period piece. “Sarah Jessica Parker has worn a couple of my vintage dresses on her HBO show Divorce.”

The pop-up takes place at Shop The Trader, a newly opened permanent pop-up boutique in Lakewood that is available to rent. Heather Sapanos jumped on the opportunity as soon as she found out about it. “The space is perfect for creating an elevated, enjoyable vintage shopping experience. It’s a great size allowing for a good amount of merchandise without being overwhelming to the customer.”  The vintage brands are thoughtfully merchandised together by category creating a seamless shopping experience. The finds range from the 1900s-1990s but are heavier on 70s, 80s, and 90s because those styles are hot on the runways and in demand.
