Treasure-Seekers Dress Their Best at NYC's Big-Ass Vintage Show

On a happy cruise through opening day of NYC's annual Vintage Show at the Metropolitan Pavilion on Friday, we spotted loads of well-heeled shoppers ducking in and out of booths in search of some old-school finery. Though the price-tags gave us vertigo, we will say there was some pretty enviable stuff on offer from the countless vendors lined up inside.

We shot a few of our favorite things (Scarlett O'Hara'esque gowns, a Deco-party dress, and loads and loads of gorgeous gaudy summer necklaces)...including some adorable treasure seekers.
