Thats exactly whats happening this weekend at the Vintage Trunk Show and Sale in Delray Beach. Imagine a two-day-long couture orphanage of fluffy crinolines, go-go dresses, and swing coats hanging patiently until you find them (or until someone else does, so go early and stay late). If you cant make it through all of the vendors without collapsing, take a cupcake break; House of Sweets is selling batches of the colorfully topped energy snacks to help keep you moving. There will also be a classic car show, a swing dance review, and era-spanning music from the ´40s through the ´60s to help inspire you. The door price is only five bucks, so spend the day blowing the rest of your paycheck on the important stuff: handbags, dresses, and gold lame swimsuits that would make Esther Williams weep with joy. The spree runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 561-436-8116, or visit www.myspace.com/vintagetrunkshow.
