Sample sales and pop-up shops are cool and all, but I'm not kidding when I say they have nothing on the Manhattan Vintage Show. And, this weekend, the shopping mecca is back for two days of get-it-while-you-can goodness.
If you're unfamiliar, the Manhattan Vintage Show is a bazaar featuring every top-notch vintage vendor this side of the Mississippi (and maybe even beyond). There are chiffon floral dresses that would stop Daisy Buchanan's heart and silk, Japanese souvenir jackets that put Ryan Gosling's Drive coat to shame.

And, being the vintage hounds that we are, editor-in-chief Christene Barberich and I curated a shop of our favorite pieces available at this weekend's show. You can buy them online now before those hoards of people try to grab 'em this Friday and Saturday. And, yes, by "hoards of people," I may just be referring to myself.
