Peel Out 2015

Musings

retro lovely, miss peel out, car show, rockabilly, pa car shows, pin up, grease and graceBetter late than never, here’s are some of our photos from Peel Out 2015 Car show and the Miss Peel Out pin-up contest! I won’t blather on too much, this is going to be photo heavy (and that’s only taking a few from the quick snapshots I got that day.)

The location was great, Reamstown Memorial Park, Reamstown, PA. Which is in the heart of Lancaster County’s gemstone of an antique-ing area. Hot as Hell, nearing 100, I think it was, but we all survived. I don’t know how the pin-up gals kept their make-up so nice! I didn’t even bother…

Our vendor booth was set up right next to my darling friends from Retro Lovely. (Read more about them). My mom got to participate as a judge for the pin-up contest, and I got to help count votes. Good music (the Ultra Kings, rockabilly), good food, good people, good cars.  A great event put on by The Garage in Adamstown, down the road. We will definitely be returning next year.

Three New Pinstriped Vintage Handbags

• Pinstriping - Metal Fabrication - Art & Gifts, New At the Shop

pinstriped vintage purse
Dean just keeps rockin’ ’em out. Now we have three ‘new’ purses to offer you at our shop. These are vintage, vinyl bags, pin-striped in a classy rockabilly style. Very awesome for nights out on the town, car shows, pin up model photo shoots, and of course date nights! We do have some in sizes large enough for work or carrying a bit more.

These are actual vintage items, some have certain imperfections. Everything is disclosed on the item listing in text and photos. We carefully scrutinize these purses to choose the ones that are in the best condition, inside and out.

You can take a look at the new purses in the gallery below, then check out the entire selection at the shop.

Our artist Dean adds class to all his projects with his old school pin striping style. You can read more about Dean in his biography section.

Well, in follow up to the sketch post for Saint Patrick’s day (long overdue!) here is how the final image came out for the Lady and Leprechaun print.

A tongue in cheek, bawdy Irish pin-up. You are invited to laugh and celebrate your inner Irish. Who’s the lucky one? The girl with the newfound gold or the leprechaun himself?

This piece is titled, “Devil Take the Women” after the old Irish tune, Whiskey in the Jar.

“I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy”

A fun addition to the home gallery. Chic / Fashion / Retro / Rockabilly / Prehistoric
