As part of our continuing work with local apothecary, Roots Rose Radish, we’ve happily replenished our collection with fresh new products. These vintage inspired shells hold our bergamint lip balm! Adorable and easy to spot in a cluttered purse.

Another of our local favorites, Carrie George, is known for her inspiring up-cycling abilities; turning vintage leather pieces into wearable bags and earrings. This buttery soft blue number has both handles and a cross body strap, and is accented by four differently colored leather highlights!

Prom and Beyond

Uncategorized

We might not be kids anymore, but at Petrune we LOVE playing dress up. So whenever a customer asks for something vintage to wear to a formal event, our minds turn to playful puffy skirts and fitted bodices– classic elegance that comes straight from the 1950s. This first forest green beauty is nearly all tulle, featuring a scalloped, sequined and strapless bodice. The silk bouquet and shawl are both detachable.

The fabric on this next one is supremely airy, perfect for any summer occasion. The halter strap is adjustable and it has pockets! So perfect.

Seriously, the details on this dress are spectacular. We were nearly drooling over the fabric’s painted texture, which is topped by a gold overlay of checkers and stars. Over that are a burst of hand sewn gold shimmery star appliqu├ęs, each with a tiny rhinestone in the center.

These next two are special finds for us. Either would be stunning as a prom gown, or even as a perfectly unique wedding dress.

The lace overlay wrapped with a black velvet sash continues to the back, framing the clip-on bow detail that drapes perfectly to the bottom of the dress.

This next dress screams pretty princess in the best way. Covered in the most illuminating rhinestones, this early 50s piece shines and sparkles like the day it was made. Even the most detailed pictures can’t capture how incredibly radiant this dress is, it’s really one you need to see for yourself.
