Dear Friends,

One of the three stores on our Vintage Voyage is Rowtique, located on music row. Not only does this store have some of the most beautiful vintage gowns I’ve ever seen, but it also carries a selection of rockabilly-remakes…which is great beacuse you can pick a dress and a size that fits you!

On our voyage we found three dresses we loved!
-purple seventies lace
-sea foam green early sixties
-sailor girl rockabilly remake

In exactly one week at my CD release show at The Basement (8pm Wed. June 23) the finalists of the Vintage Voyage will be selected! Girls, just remember, you must be present to win! You can visit my website t see the video log from Rowtique ๐Ÿ™‚ www.norajanestruthers.com

The pre-sale packages of my record are only up for one more week so check those out while you can!

Thanks for reading friends!

Sincerely,

Dear Friends,

It’s official. Vintage vehicles are the perfect compliment to vintage dresses! This week I am doing a vintage-themed promotion called the “Vintage Voyage”. I will be visiting 3 of Nashville’s finest vintage stores: Fanny’s, Clothing Exchange, and Rowtique. At each store I will perform 2 or 3 songs, pick out a dress that I LOVE, and find one lucky customer who will be entered to become a finalist in the Vintage Voyage. At my cd release show on Wednesday, June 23rd at The Basement, three of these women will will be chosen as finalists…the prize you ask?

The finalists get to keep the dress AND they get to be a model in a professional photo shoot to appear in the August issue of “Her Nashville” magazine!!!!

Very exciting! Ladies, you must be present to win so tell your friends and come on out to Nashville’s finest vintage stores!

Don’t miss the voyage:

East Nash-
Tuesday, June 8, 5PM — Fanny’s House of Music

Hillsboro-
Thursday, June 10, 12PM — Clothing Exchange

Dear Friends,

This 1950’s is one of my all time favorites. The details are amazing: large white buttons, green cotton fabric with woven white criss-cross stripes, two huge circle pockets, and a rounded collar. Someone had their thinking-cap on when they designed this dress. I bought this one in Leesburg, VA…but I’m not telling you where. It’s my little secret!

Thanks for reading friends.

Sincerely,

Dear Friends,

Sometimes, there are too many wonderful dresses. I tried on 6 or 7 of these (all of which fit perfectly) at East Nashville’s half vintage/half music store, Fanny’s, and came home with only one– the brown 40’s with diagonal white stripes. ๐Ÿ™‚

At least it was one that I love!

Thanks for reading friends!
