We had the pleasure of attending the Greater Boston Vintage Society’s Art Deco weekend over Memorial Day weekend and what a wonderful time we had! It was held in Newport, Rhode Island, amongst the amazing Gilded Age “cottages” of oil barons and steel tycoons. We stayed at the Salve Regina campus for the entire weekend, which included a visit to a flea market, a picnic on the front lawn, dinner at the Safari Room with one of the most beautiful views ever, and a dance on Saturday evening, followed on Sunday by a visit to two of the “cottages”.
With the exception of Matthew forgetting about 90% of his wardrobe (more on that in the video!) it was a truly wonderful weekend where we saw old friends and met some new ones. A huge thank you to Jason Volk of the Great Boston Vintage Society who tirelessly organized this weekend-long event (no easy task!) and a special tip of the hat to Cori and Roddy who lent Matthew their tuxedo jacket and bowtie so he could look extra dashing during the Saturday night dance. I was thrilled to be able to finally wear a 30’s dress with the most amazing back detail that I bought a few years ago and had just been waiting for the perfect occasion to pull it out!
We hope you’ll enjoy this video of our Art Deco Weekend adventures. More videos coming soon! If you’d like to see us cover something in particular, please comment below!
