Today, I’d like to introduce you to one of our loyal stockists, Bygones Vintage Clothing, and its owner, Maynee!
Tell us about your shop! Where is it located and how long have you been in business?
Bygones has been in business since 1979. We are in the Carytown district of Richmond, Virginia, an eclectic shopping area with great locally-owned shops and restaurants. We are right next door to the Byrd Theater, a movie palace in continuous operation since 1928!
When and how did you first find out about Trashy Diva? How long have you been a stockist?
I first saw Trashy Diva on a trip to New Orleans in 2002 and decided the time was right to start carrying reproductions for the first time.
What is your favorite Trashy Diva style in your shop right now?
The Sweetie Dress in Irish Polka.
What are your top 3 favorite Trashy Diva dresses of all time?
My top 3 favorites are the Trixie Dress in Asia Holiday, the Betty Blouse with Bustle Skirt in Ribbon Ladies, and the 1940s Dress in Hurricane Ladies! I also love Slap and Tickle print pieces.
When you’re not working, what do you like to do in your free time?
I am fortunate that I am called into people’s homes when they are settling estates and I get to treasure hunt for original dresses and jewelry from the early 20th century. So Exciting!
