Vintage trunk show will be Thursday

Macalistaire, at 1850 S. Coast Hwy., will host a vintage trunk show from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday that will feature two local designers, champagne and appetizers, owner Rachiel Macalistaire said.

Designer Jenna Petrotta, who works with vintage textiles and has created wearable pieces from old scarves, will show her collection of color-enriched, bohemian clothing.


“She takes vintage slips and dyes and soaks them to enrich the colors,” Macalistaire said.

Diana Garreau, a designer-turned-jewelry maker, will share her one-of-a-kind, hand-made pieces, which include a mix of stones and metal, south sea pearls, vintage mosaics and beads.

Macalistaire at 1850 is a vintage boutique that carries items from all decades featured throughout a fashionably eclectic and inspiring space. Find anything from a 1950s designer wiggle dress to 1980s vuarnet sunglasses in the array of clothing, jewelry and accessories it offers for men and women. It also carries art, barware and furniture from all eras.
