Denisebrain field trip 2: Vintage Fashion Expo San Francisco

Once again, I was fortunate enough to get to go to the Vintage Fashion Expo in San Francisco, March 21-22, home of the most amazing quantity and quality of vintage temptations I've ever seen! I helped my friend Anna Newman (Anna Newman Vintage and Booty Vintage on Etsy) with her booth, which was smashingly cheery! It didn't hurt that the event was being held, after a long absence, at the SF Concourse, with plenty of natural light.
