This Saturday, the original Hazel will host one of Alex Hossler famous trunk shows. She'll bring the creme de la creme from her Michigan antique mall to showcase at one of her regular retailers; Hazel. Purveyor of the finest vintage hats, handbags, costume jewelry, and clothing, Alex traverses all over the country in her search for hidden treasures and classic pieces for her store on the lake. For this show she's already sent a trunk to the store with items like stylized velvet heart-shaped hairpins, floral dresses from the 50s, an ornate gold cross locket, and a draped stacked chain necklace from the 60s. Hazel encourages shoppers and collectors to stop by this Saturday, June 4 11am to 5pm. [Racked Inbox]
