When we say we're mad for vintage we mean it in every way possible: Crazy for the throwback wares that are always in style, and mad that we can't scoop up each exceptional piece we see. And this insanity really comes out in flying colors at the Manhattan Vintage Show
. The two-day event, which brings all of our favorite local and remote vendors together under one roof, is responsible for serving up a warehouse-sized bounty of goods, with everything from delicate lace frocks to hardcore leather pants. You name it, they've got it (and the prices, though up there, are usually negotiable, too). In celebration of our wallet-breaking bender, taking place this Friday and Saturday, we've got a few dresses already available online, just to whet that shopping whistle. But trust us, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Where:
