Busy busy! Check out the latest videos from Offbeat Avenue. Up first, Michelle's got a mondo haul of vintage to share from the back of the OffbeatMobile. You'll see tons of vintage cookbooks, a Lite Brite game (original of course!) a Sears sewing machine and much more.
She'll be listing these on our Etsy shop here: Offbeat Avenue on Etsy


Next up Marguerite goes back to the 80s to share some awesome authentic 80s clothing including an Esprit sport tank, animal print bodybuilder pants (a la MC Hammer) and a Madonna inspired crop jersey. These are on sale on our Depop shop here. Offbeat Avenue on Depop

We couldn't fit anymore stuff into the OffbeatMobile after coming back from a huge estate sale this weekend!


Estate Sale Haul: 50s Esquire Calendar, Vintage Barbie Carrying Case

Image
This week Michelle got all set up to go to a huge Estate sale in Hollis but had to turn around when she got there because it was so packed! So what does an OA Gal do? Find another sale! Michelle shares some of the goodies she got at an auction and another smaller sale she attended earlier. You'll see her showcase a 1950s Esquire "girlie" calendar, an antique measuring tape, cookbooks, a vintage Barbie carrying case, a vintage hairdryer, a vintage electric shaver and much more.

Spring Cleaning for Vintage Sellers

Image
Spring cleaning! 🐣 During this mandated stay at home period we have done a lot of organizing at the warehouse (separately of course! I haven’t seen Michelle in person in 3 weeks!) I know this looks like a mess but it’s much better than it was! I started on ephemera and books and Michelle organized our growing craft and sewing project section and expanded the toys and board games section as well. Next up are hats and handbags!

Festival of Trees Leominster MA!

Image
Yep it's that time of year when the OA gals roll out their tree for the festival of firs! We just put the finishing touches on our beautiful tree for Leominster's 14th annual festival of trees. This year's theme is rock n' roll, baby! This shiny retro silver tree has tons of rock pinbacks and pretty ornaments adorning a nice little 5 foot tree, perfect for your game room or apartment!

If you haven't quite gotten into the holiday spirit this is the perfect way to do it!
And if you'd like to take home a tree, simply put your bid on the ballots available in the City Hall auditorium.
Bring lots of quarters and drop one or all into the Offbeat Avenue tree (or any of the trees of course!)

Come on down to Leominster City Hall

Viewing Hours:
Weekdays 9:00am – 4:00pm; Thursdays 9:00am - 5:30pm
Weekends 11:00am – 3:00pm (except when noted otherwise)

All bidding and voting ends on Monday December 16 at 6:00pm (extended hours for final day).

What's New for Summer 2019

Image
Greeting vintage fans! It's been a whacky summer for me and Michelle. We've had some family health issues that have prevented us from doing shows, but in the meantime we've been stocking up the shops (Etsy, eBay, Depop, if you must know!) with amazing vintage goodies.

Some of my favorites include a 60s mod white sleeveless shift dress, a key knife from Craftsman, an Apollo 11 lithograph, and a Trader Vic's swizzle stick! Check em out here.
