There's no place like home

We haven't found any rad ruby slippers lately, but we have found ourselves a temporary home. No, it isn't a Gypsy Waggon. Not yet.

Story is, we'll soon be settling into a steady stint at the Independent Designer's Market in Harvard square. Find us there every Saturday in June! Between and after these dates we'll still be roaming though, like the hippest of homeless hobos.

In other exciting news, the photo shoot we clothed for Michael Albor Hair (see pics here) has been nominated for a fashion forward award! Congrats to Michael for his breathtaking sculptural hair designs, and to our own Callista Wilson who styled the rag and jewel fashions that won the fashion forward nomination.

Callista is featuring our summer finds in another shoot soon, so keep an eye out for more amazing photos of our stuff in the next few weeks.

In the mean time, come see us. We've a few new dates added in addition to our residency at the IDM. Check it out:

This just in: "Sea Lawn" Swim Trunks by Mister Nutter

New Englanders love wool.

A proper Nor' Easterner knows from experience that it is the only natural fiber to wick wetness away from your skin and keep you warm even when saturated. Now New England waters are winter-cold, but swimwear hasn't taken this into account since the woolen suits of the 1920's, long before lycra and spandez.

Partly because of the water, and partly because he's awesome, local North Shore designer Mister Nutter has launched a new line of super soft merino wool men's swim trunks in a proper 1920's style and fun bright colors. The line is called "Sea Lawn" and to explain the name I'll just say that you are a poor soul if Singing Beach is all you know of Manchester-by-the-Sea.

They are as soft as flannel, hold their shape when wet, and are as warm as a wet suit but way more stylin'. Take one surfing, you hottie.

We'll have a few for you perusal at our next event: An Affordable Wardrobe's Top Shelf Flea Market Sunday 5/22 in Davis Square. See you there.

IDM is carving out a space for Boston’s independent designers and artists to showcase their work, gain greater exposure and establish a presence in the community. This Market runs almost every Saturday, year round and Gypsy hopes to do many more dates here in the future! Be sure to come with cash to snap up great bargains on exclusive designs (NOTE: Gypsy takes credit cards, but no promises about the other vendors). Check out the IDM on facebook for more info
