Alamo Vintage Weekend

Alamo Square outfit 1
This last weekend was The Alamo Square Flea Market and I was lucky enough to get a great spot selling some vintage clothing. Since Jenny was still off on her travels I had dear Isla from A Fine Day for Sailing join me. We started setting up early so you can see that we had a vice like grip on our coffee cups. Life saver! I had heard that the weather was going to be quite cold, so I wore two layers of tights, boots, a fall inspired velvet floral skirt and a long sleeved crushed velvet top. It turned out to be just the loveliest day and I even got a bit sunburned on my face and back. Oops! 

It was so nice to meet so many lovely ladies, many of whom said they read the blog (Hello!). I hope that everyone who bought something from Hummingbird Girls Vintage really enjoys it and comes back again to another sale. Please send us pictures of you rocking your new treasures. We might just put them up on the blog. Please don't be shy, we really do love meeting all of our readers and making new friends. We'll keep you updated for our next event and hope to see you there.

KizzyDoll :

Love those boots..looks like a fabulous day!! xx

Shybiker :

Oh, I so wish I could have come! To both browse through those racks and say hello. But the airfare would have eaten up any savings.

I love the color of your hair in the sunlight: it glistens!

Steffys Pros and Cons

Alice, Pretty Confused :

You look so lovely, those boots are fantastic! I've been feeling that autumn chill recently as well, but whenever I try and be prepared and pull out my winter coats it gets warm again! xo

Jen :

Hello 1990s! I haven't worn crushed velvet since 1993 and I'm a little afraid to try it again, but you make it look good. I'm reconsidering. Digging your boots, too. Are they comfy?

Heather, 29 Skirts :

This looks awesome! If I'm ever in the area when you're selling, I'd love to stop by. Looks like you have a lot of shoes, too, which is really cool. Your skirt is so pretty and looks great with all the's been so hot down here in Southern California, and I miss wearing black.


I'd give anything for that belt....

Annebeth :

chrysa :

I only discovered vintage fashion recently, as till now I had never been to a vintage store in my life! but there are plenty here in Zurich and it is like discovering hidden treasures! Shopping becomes so much fun:) Wish I lived in S.F., it is so common there, isn't it?

I love your skirt and shoes!

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

Aw wish I could have shopped your booth (hrm am due for an SF visit soon), you have such marvelous taste. It's funny to see the two of you in tights and long sleeves, it's still so hot/humid here in Chicago.

Did you buy your boots recently? I want a similar pair to rock this fall! :

great picture.. :)

Burn That Dress :

That skirt, that skirt! It reminds me of some incense infused carpet or wall covering I might find in a hippies van...I mean this in the best way of course, but it never seems to come across that way. Hmmm, what I mean to say is I adore that skirt!

The Wardrobe Stylist :
