Petrunia Goes to the Market!


Having just completed another round of photoshoots  for our clothing line Petrunia, we are more excited than ever to see these beautiful clothes on our beautiful customers!

With luxurious fabrics and re-appropriated vintage prints, these dresses and coats proved the perfect thing for a sunny summer day. Thinking this, we journeyed down to the Ithaca Farmer’s Market on a sublime cloudless evening, and played around the docks in Petrunia’s stunning silk dresses. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it.

Look forward to seeing Petrunia’s vintage-inspired pieces in our store on The Commons in Ithaca as early as this August 2012! Many thanks to Julianne Schaeffer and Leah Summers, our gorgeous models for this shoot.

The Lucy, made with a vintage steel-leaf print.

Our Bottle Green trench, perfect for cool summer nights and well into fall.

The Magda, because Chiffon will always = luxury.

Our golden-hued trenchcoat.

Meet the Neighbors: Comet Skateboards

Beautiful Things, Color, Ithacans, Publicity, Special Events

If you’ve ever been upstairs checking out our men’s department, record shop, or pinball machine, you may have already met them. Did you smell the fresh sawdust? Hear the hum of a sander? That’s Comet. They’re pretty cool.

Comet has been next door for about a year now, but have only recently opened their shop so that you can purchase their stunning, hand-printed boards. Walking through their shop feels more like walking through a gallery than a skate store, but the art is not just for looking. Check out some of their pieces online for just a taste of the beauty that could be carrying you down the street.

To commemorate the occasion, we gave our window a spring makeover in Comet’s signature orange hues, starring one of their handmade longboards! We hope they like it… maybe they’ll make us a board with a crazy vintage floral print?
