Vintage Weekends II

As we told you last week, here another installment of Vintage Weekends with things to do for the weekend of May 5th - 7th, 2006.

Philadelphia, PA
Kensington Arts Day - As the limelight continues to sneak up on Kensington's warehouse galleries and textile studios, it would seem only fitting to dedicate an entire day exhibiting the area's unique underground style. The East Kensington Neighborhood Association holds an arts festival featuring everything from glass sculptures to vintage clothing by local designers.

San Diego, CA
Another Friday option is heading over to the Duchess Vintage fashion show at Beauty Bar. Ariane and Mariah (aka Filthy and Lita) started Duchess back in November and have been putting their own spin on punky '80s retro (think bracelets, rainbows, and Cyndi Lauper/Madonna-faux-virgin) ever since. 4746 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego, CA 92115 Phone: (619)516-4746
