Featured Sellers: Lisa and Tanya from Bunny's Trunk Show

(Lisa and Tanya pictured above)

1. How would you describe the style of your pieces?
We like to run the gamut on styles - from 1940's-50's classically
unique to the funky 1960's-70's to the bold 1980's.

2. What inspires you?
Tanya: If I had to pick one thing it would be sparkly jewelry. I love
the glamour of the of the 1940's -1950's style. The quality of the
rhinestone jewelry amazes me, after over 50 years it can still dazzle
the eye.
Lisa: I get drawn in by the sculpture of the piece. I love it when I
get an intricate, handcrafted piece. And the fact that it could be
decades old but it's still modern today.

3. Who is your fashion/design icon?
Tanya: Eisenburg and Weiss. They are the top vintage fine costume
jewelry makers. I also tend to lean to Sarah Coventry because her
styles have a very wide range from simple day wear to designer chic.
Lisa: I'm attracted to metals, like gold, silver and copper with gem
stones and the artisan craft of, for example, Taxco and Scandinavian
mod artists. My goal is to learn more about gem stones and the
medicinal affects they have on people. But on the flip side, I
recently acquired an Enid Collins purse - her designs inspire me.

4. Who is your kind of customer?
Because of our wide range of jewelry and prices, we have a wide range
of customers. We usually attract them all and enjoy meeting everyone!

5. Where can people find you?
We are at and show at Chicago Art Department
in the Pilsen neighborhood at 1837 South Halsted in Chicago on every
second Friday.

Bunny's Trunk Show will be at Vintage Heaven this Sunday November 7th.
