***VFG Featured Members!***

Yes! It is that time again to resume our Featured Member segment on the homepage of the Vintage Fashion Guild website . This will be starting our second season of featuring three trade members a week. Starting the alphabet where we left off, our first Featured Member for 2008 is................
Laureen of retrodress.com

A new VFG Member from California USA, she has this to say about herself..."Like so many other vintage clothing aficionados, the love affair with vintage clothes began very young, initiated by a thrifting grandmother, and further honed by Mom, who was something of an expert at unearthing treasures. Regularly coming home with fabulous dress-up booty - everything from luscious, frothy 1950's crinolines and evening gowns to fur stoles and costume jewelry - resulted in a dress-up collection the envy of all my girl friends."
We fell in love with a yellow 70s jersey dress on her website. Click the image to see...

Next is Samaya from samayalingvintage.com

Samaya is another new VFG member from the UK. She tells us her favorite decades for vintage clothing would be the 20s, 30s and 40s but that she loves it all and really doesn't specialize. She also says..."I have been wearing vintage for over ten years and started to sell vintage costume jewellery and accessories at fairs 2 or 3 years ago and have now a large collection of vintage clothing, fabric and accessories and do 1 or 2 fairs a month including The London Vintage Fashion and Textiles fair in Hammersmith and Frock Me in Chelsea."
