Date: July 13. Venue: 323 Franklin Avenue (Brooklyn, NY)
Laura Lanz-Frolio of La Poubelle Vintage takes Street Style to a whole new level with her nomadic boutique. Nestled in the quaint neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, La Poubelle Vintage mobile shop offers an experience similar to rummaging through a charming attic filled with true one-of-a-kinds, graphic prints, floral and dotted fabrics, all in the latest summer hues, assorted groovy sunglasses, wool fedoras, organic tribal jewelry and everything else in between. Patrons enjoyed a laid back atmosphere with tiki lighting, flannel picnic table decor, ready-to-serve chilled beer and tasty hot dogs.
Laura explains to Jesenia’s Goodie Bag the making of La Poubelle Vintage from start-up to roadway. Beginning with an online Esty shop, Laura watched the food truck business boom. Discouraged by the 20K per month average retail space listings, she decided to take her love of fashion to the streets,– literally. Unlike the mass market of table vendors, Laura’s shop boasts a set of wheels and more space to house merchandise for her buck. Last summer La Poubelle Vintage featured in the streets of Seattle. La Poubelle Vintage branches out directly to the customer. By cutting out the retail space dilemma, Laura can keep pricing down, for the most affordable vintage money can buy.
La Poubelle Vintage will be showcasing throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens, well into October’s fall season, especially holiday markets. A possible Down South or West Coast feature might be in the works during the colder months in New York, as well as Music festivals.
