D.I.Y Projects, In Store - Shop Info and New Stock, Uncategorized

We opened our doors on the 1st day of Spring in 2012 and this Sunday marked our first full rotation around the sun! I was filled with a mixture of emotions. I was proud. Exhausted (in a, satisfied that I’ve worked a lot this year, kinda way). Excited for the future. And just really happy!

Its not often that people can say that they truly love what they do for work. I really do. I love the shop. I love the customers who come in. I love the creative outlet. I love pottering around and tidying up. I love when someone has tried 20 dresses on and finally finds their perfect, “I’m a fucking goddess” gown. I love talking to random people about vintage and the benefits of it. I love drinking coffee in the sun. I love my fellow shop owners, neighbours and friends. I love finding really unique vintage items, fixing them up and presenting them to you. I love supporting local artists and craftsmen. I love opening the doors every morning and just waiting to see what the day will bring!

We are a lucky bunch, those who get to do what they love and after one year of it I can honestly say that I love Dapper Darlings, I put my heart and soul into it. Its a reflection of me and what I like and who I am. I am honoured that people follow the shop with interest and that customers keep coming back! I am so lucky and I am so excited to keep bringing you unique, affordable and wearable vintage clothes.

To celebrate this momentous occasion I asked the girls from BlackBrick Studios (https://www.facebook.com/blackbrickstudio) to install a special birthday window for us! Here are some pics!

Dapper Darlings is a vintage clothing store on the Central Coast of NSW selling vintage clothing and locally hand made crafts. Dapper Darlings was born out of the idea that old is beautiful, recycling is fashionable and being an individual is priority. You will find a range of vintage dresses, skirts, blouses, retro knits, mens and womans button up shirts and jackets, shoes, bags, scarves and anything else we uncover in the wonderful world of the old. Every item is hand picked, mended, dyed, altered or just left in all its vintage glory. Some things you just can not improve on!
