This young lady is posing in front of Lulu's Vintage in a vintage faux fur jacket that she purchased at the store.
Do you recognize the person in the photo? Is it you or a friend? We would love to know!
The original LuLu's Vintage (note the difference in capitalization) was located at 1031 S.W. Morrison Street. Ray's Cheap Date and Ray's Ragtime were right next door. This first version of Lulu's Vintage was open from 2001 - 2003.
The store had racks suspended from the ceiling, and a clean modern look - things that at the time were unheard of in most Portland boutiques, let alone vintage stores.
I would take Polaroid pictures of clients in their purchases as well as fashionable people who stopped by (I now take digital photos of clients and post them on my website). I would have the people sign the photos and then I would tape the photos up around the interior of the door.
During the upcoming weeks I am going to share some of these photos with you.
Take for instance this vintage Lilly Pulitzer dress with amaizing corn print that I had for sale online. A couple of years back Holly of Lucitebox Vintage fell in love with the dress and purchased it. Holly recently did a blog post on her blog HollyGab about why she bought the dress.
