Several years ago, Kellyann decided to indulge her love of vintage ladies’ wear and added Lady’s Slipper Vintage to the mix. The store carries a large selection of lovingly cared for vintage dresses, coats and accessories like hats and purses from the 1800s to the 1970s. Along with the boutique room you can also purchase vintage pieces from Lady’s Slipper Vintage online at eBay, Etsy and at www.ladysslippervintage.com.
