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.

Unboxing Our Gift from the Marvelous Mrs Maisel TV Show!

Image
We're so pleased with the lovely gift we received from the vintage lovin folks over at Amazon Prime's Golden Globe winning TV series, the Marvelous Mrs Maisel.

They had a special giveaway on their Instagram account that Michelle answered and won the gift!

We're huge fans of this well written very funny show about a 1950s housewife that decides to become a stand-up comic.

The prop master at the show has actually purchased a few items from yours truly, Offbeat Avenue!

It doesn't get any more authentic than that!

Watch the unboxing happen on our YouTube video:
