Upcoming Events

Back Alley Bazaar

Sunday, August 4th 2024

This beloved yearly event is where you can get fantastic deals on vintage that is "Not Perfect, but still Dang Cute"!

Throughout the year, as we curate our selection of vintage for the shop, we sometimes come across things that are damaged, but still amazing. We save all of those pieces for a one day, blow-out, garage sale type event behind the shop! We are pleased to once again be joined by our fantastic neighbors, Moth Oddities and Olio Vintage!

The Bazaar is Sunday, August 4th from 11am to 5pm in the alley behind the shop. The sale is accessible through the store or by entering the alleyway between Conga and Moth Oddities on 5th Street NE, just look for the pink, fruity tent! Free parking is available in the Wells Fargo parking lot.

Past Events

We have events multiple times a year! Here is a selection of some of our favorites.

Twin Cities True Vintage Show

Saturday, April 20, 2024

This annual market is in its second year of highlighting and celebrating the best of vintage clothing, jewelry, accessories and textiles from the 1800s - 1970s. 

We showcased our wares alongside 40+ vendors. Many of the pieces that we bring to this show haven't been available in our storefront. Some unique and delicate antiques have been stored and awaiting the right collector, while other pieces were new to us and sourced specifically for this show!

Pearl After Dark: Sunset at the Pearl Lagoon

Friday, January 27, 2023

For our 7 year anniversary, we transformed the shop into a lush, verdant paradise, poured fanciful cocktails and danced to the live bossa nova music of The Buffalo Function Music Band!

After pausing our celebrations for a couple of years, we brought back our birthday party complete with the crowning of a new Pearl Girl!! The attendee that is voted best dressed received a fabulous prize, the prestige of the Pearl Girl title, and a year long discount!

Back Alley Bazaar

Sunday, August 8, 2021

Throughout the year, as we curate our selection of vintage for the store, we sometimes come across things that are damaged, but still amazing. Or, while laundering and repairing items, we decided that too much work needs to be put into a garment to get it fully up to snuff to make it to the sales floor. All of these items get saved for a blow-out, garage sale type event behind the shop, the Back Alley Bazaar!

Pearl After Dark: Holiday Party

Friday, December 14, 2019

We looked to the early 1960's for inspiration for a cocktail party. No outfit in the 60's was complete without complementing headwear, so we invited out friends at Karen Morris Millinery for a trunk show of her fabulous hats! 

Our decorations and libations were also straight outta the 60's, with a ridiculous amount of Jello molds and gin punch.

Time After Time: A Vintage Fashion Show

Saturday, September 21, 2019

Rose+Bull is a duo of dynamic creativity promoting sustainable fashion through events and photographic inspiration. We participated in their first event, Time After Time, an inspiring brunch fashion show, with 100% of ticket sales benefitting OutFront MN. 

Pearl After Dark on the Riviera

Saturday, June 2, 2018

Our second birthday bash had a "Riviera" theme. We became millionaires for the evening, glamorously dressed for an evening of luxurious lounging and a decadent dance party. With fashion illustrations from Claire Ward, catering from Tori 44, and tunes from DJ Superbrush427, we had a blast and crowned our second Pearl Girl!

S'Habiller avec Amour

Saturday, September 29, 2018

As a part of Fashion Week MN, this event was a salon of creatives curating style from local boutiques, vintage, consignment, designer, couture and artisans into unexpected runway looks. Atmospheric vibes of live opera, baroque and lush styles brought us to another world. Our very own Audra and Darling Amelia also modeled in the show! 

Pearl After Dark: Anniversary Party

Saturday, March 25, 2017

For our first anniversary, we pulled out all the stops to celebrate YOU, our customers. We had performances by MAX of RuPaul's Drag Race, music by French electronic artist Monsieur Adi, fashion illustrations by Claire Ward, food by Drew Thomas Catering and sweet treats by Glam Doll Donuts! We also asked guests to Show us how they integrated your Golden Pearl Vintage finds with your their fabulous style for a chance to win best dressed in our PEARL PAGEANT!

Opening Day!

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

We opened our doors to the public in January of 2016, after 5 months of preparation. We had torn out a dropped ceiling and refurbished the building's original tin ceiling. We tore up layers of carpet and glue to expose the original hardwood floors. We build dressing rooms, display columns, a window display area, painted everything, and brought in all of the carefully curated pieces that Audra had been collecting for 6 months. The result was the bright, calm welcoming space that you see today.
