It’s Been a Creative Summer! Check out our Pop Up Store

Posted by

The weather has been glorious this summer, with hot days and lots of nurturing rain. At La Vogue Vintage we have been busy creating new pieces in time for our next pop up store during Antiquing at the Arc, which will be held at the Acadia Recreation Complex on August 20 & 21.

Below are just some of the many new items you can find and try on at the show, or buy online right here on our site! 

Summer necklaces

We have created a number of new fun summer necklaces that you can find here on our Online Store or on our Instagram page. These pieces are so unique because we upcycle vintage jewels your grandmother loved to wear and turn them into pieces you could wear any time of the day and with any kind of outfit. These versatile pieces are not only gorgeous, but they have a ton of interesting history for you to share with admirers.

Bold earrings

With the warm weather we find women like to wear their hair up more often, so we’re always looking for interesting and bold earrings to wear during the hot summer months. Have a look at the new earrings we made from vintage Austrian buttons (so neat!).

For example, we found these vintage buttons a few years ago while searching through some tins. We just knew they could be used for something unique and we were right! We actually used the buttons to create a mold and then we cast them in silver, turning impractical vintage buttons into easy to wear, fun silver earrings. Of course if you would like a pair in gold we can custom make some for you. Contact Us and we can chat about the process!

Vintage rings

We just love the rings that have just come out of the workshop too! There is a great mix of different designs, right from an old Victorian design of a buckle ring to a vintage look of the 80’s. Do you remember when wearing wishbone rings was all the rage? (Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone!) Well we have some in stock. The rings have been crafted based on designs from our archives. Over our more than 85 years in business we’ve collected some incredible designs which were groundbreaking at the time they were created, but nowadays we would refer to them as vintage.
