Chicago Vesties Meet Up

On Friday evening, March 12th, four members of the Chicago Vintage Etsy Society Street Team (Vesties) met at the home of RetroBabs. Their fearless leader, Martha, was the main attraction. Martha the owner of Open Door Studio  vintage shop, Julia of Basya Berkman vintage clothing and Lisa of A Blast from the Past  vintage shop were present.
Wonderful VIOLET martinis were served compliments of Lisa! Here the ladies toast the success of Team Vesties which will soon have over 600 members!

Babs put on a spread of homemade chicken salad, veggies with dip and cheese cake. The ladies appreciated Bab's vintage collection of atomic Starburst and Temporama dishes.
The group chatted and visited around the table as they picked Martha's brain for Etsy knowledge and tips. She was a plethora of information!
After a fantastic evening the ladies parted ways vowing to meet up again soon. Martha's dream is that other area groups within the Vesties Team will also meet up in person and start developing friendships.
To join the fun visit: http://vintageetsysociety.ning.com/ and http://vintageetsysociety.blogspot.com/ ask for info about team membership.
