The pictures above show the present build-out of the Cynthia Rowley installation in the atrium of the 4141 Building...currently a work in progress. The installation will playfully toy with the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, as we are creating an interactive outdoor park (complete with swings, bushes and a big grassy hill) inside. At the heart of the installation will be parked our Shop on Wheels, a DHL shipping truck that we've converted into a sleek Cynthia Rowley store. It's outfitted with hardwood floors, a fitting room, printed-fabric wall coverings and lucite fixtures and carries the entire range of items in the Cynthia Rowley collection—clothing, shoes, bags, eyewear, jewelry, legwear and more. When not stationed in Miami, the Shop on Wheels cruises the country, bringing the complete Cynthia Rowley retail experience to private homes, parties and trunk shows...even pulling into customers' driveways for private fittings on appointment. It’s a way of giving our customers the ultimate in service. On its way down to Miami, the Shop on Wheels has stopped in Richmond, Raleigh, Charlottesville and Savannah (at boutiques for trunk shows) and will cover parts of the Southwest on the way back. The Shop on Wheels is brand new, and we are officially launching it via the Miami installation. Limited-edition items available to purchase only at our Miami installation will include a Cynthia Rowley "Relax" picnic blanket (only 65 have been made, and each will be numbered...pic attached) and a boxed lunch to eat, picnic-style, on our grassy knoll. The lunch will be prepared by Fratelli Lyon, the Miami institution, and will include a mini bottle of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka.

Vintage Connection is a little slice of heaven for those of us who walk down the street feeling like we're in the wrong decade. Heather (the owner of Vintage Connection) loved fashion ever since she little. In fact, her most vivid childhood memories are dressing in her mothers clothes when she was a teenager. "My mom always had an eye for fashion" Heather said "she is the cover girl and inspiration for 'vintage connection' ". Like me, she began to really appreciate vintage clothing in high school. She started to sell her finds online and developed international interest and gained attention in New York and California as well. Shortly after she opened a store in Philadelphia on the corner of 9th and Bainbridge st. If you can't make it to the shop click here for the Vintage Connection website! Oh! did i forget to mention that there is a book featuring pictures from her shop called "The Little Guide to Vintage Shopping" which can be purchased here or at her store. vintage connection is located on 701 s. 9th street in philadelphia, pa 19147 267.528.1625
