Stylists, stars, and vintage enthusiasts (like Kelly Wearstler, Tessa Thompson, and Shay Mitchell) flock to A Current Affair each season for its inventory of top-notch vendors. The L.A.-born bazaar would have been setting up shop in Brooklyn all weekend (for now, its DTLA event is still set to take over the Cooper Design Space in June), but instead it’s bringing the throwback fashion party to Instagram for its first-ever virtual market starting today.
Today through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. PT (12 to 6 p.m. EST), ACA exhibitors will “sell” their chic pre-loved vintage clothing, designer treasures, luxe gems, and more for 30 minutes on Instagram Live on their own accounts. “Attendees” can shop via DM, and vendors include L.A.’s own The Goods (Friday at 10 a.m. PT), Samantha Knight Jewelry (Friday at 12:30 p.m. PT), ACA founder Richard Wainwright’s own New/Found (Saturday at 12 p.m. PT with Dylan Lex), Madly Vintage (Saturday at 2 p.m. PT), The Kit Vintage (Saturday at 3 p.m. PT), Recess (Sunday at 10:30 a.m. PT), Entre Nous (Sunday at 3 p.m. PT) and other locals alongside Amarcord Vintage, Antoinette, Circa 1700, James Veloria, Marteau Jewelry, and many other boutiques from across the U.S.
Plus, ACA will be hosting conversations with insiders on “vintage style, sustainability, small/women-owned business, and how we’re all surviving this moment in time.” If live IG shopping is too much pressure for you (and your wallet), ACA is also shoppable 24/7 this weekend and beyond at ACA’s Arcade online co-op.
