Who said your grandma wasnt a fashion icon? Sure, during your childhood, her shoulder pads, rose lapel bin, and penny loafers may have freaked you out. Who knows if they were even still in style then. But they were once. And there is a time for every style to come back. Thats the idea the so-called crafties had when they created the Retro Indie Market
. Although you might not want to don Grandmas old gear (who knows where those pants have been), you can pick up some vintage duds that dont have a face behind the fabric.
More than 70 vendors will invade the Boynton Beach Womans Club on Saturday to sell you everything from vintage couture to midcentury housewares. The whole shebang is from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., but if you show up early, theres a sweet reward: The first 100 people get free baked goods! Admission is $5, but children 12 and under who are accompanied by an adult (crafties... so responsible!) get in for free. Visit retroindiemarket.com.
