Pinup 101: Pinup Style - Beauty Bull Vintage

James and I were out and about this weekend attending the Michiana Antique Market Spring Fest at the MEC. It was both a show of business and pleasure - James played bass along with Col. Buster's Three Piece Dinner for Pearls Mahone. If you follow me on instagram you can view the videos of Pearl singing "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Six Packs and Cigarettes". It's a shame my phone was on low battery or I would have recorded more - look behind Pearls and you'll see James on the bass!

Hats, hats, and more hats! Some purses too!
After a few songs, I got up to use the ladies room but with the line wrapping around the sides, I decided to come back later and stroll the antique market part of the venue. Three long rooms containing so many vendors - I'm amazed I saw it all and more amazed I managed to find my friend's booth - Beauty Bull Vintage - in the middle of it all. Beauty Bull Vintage is based out of South Bend, IN though there isn't a brick and mortar store. In addition to the etsy shop you may find Beauty Bull Vintage at various shows and events. 

My two scarves in great condition - no holes!
The selection of vintage wares was spectacular yet I mustered some self restraint and left with two scarves. I know. 

Gloves, hats, and furs! Oh my!
When Hanah pulled out some fur collars that restraint almost went. Just to be sure though I looked at the booth at least three times to make sure I didn't miss anything. I was also a little sad that I missed the fashion show gals in their vintage outfits.

 Prior to Pearls taking the stage Beauty Bull hosted a mini vintage fashion show and you could drop by the booth and have your picture taken with the fashion show models. Battery life was not in my favor on Saturday. Oh well. In any case I'm smitten with Beauty Bull Vintage and their curated collection of vintage apparel. Be sure to check out the etsy shop and facebook for updates and events where you can see Beauty Bull Vintage for yourself!
