MICHIGAN CITY — This upcoming May First Friday, The Closet by Franklin Vintage and Chef Bizzaro Millinery will be celebrating three years of business in the Uptown Artist Lofts at 717 Franklin St.
According to a press release, each piece of vintage clothing and jewelry has a story to tell at The Closet by Franklin Vintage, and owner Julia Nielsen is happy to tell them as clients try on her vintage finds. Julia has grown up in the vintage scene as her father, David Nielsen of Nielsen’s Antiques, has had her by his side at auctions and estate sales since she was 4 years old.
David Nielsen provides all the antiques and vintage jewelry.
Aside from celebrating three years at 717 Franklin St., milliner Amanda Joyner of Chef Bizzaro Millinery is celebrating the completion of her Indiana Artist Grant to receive her milliner certification. You can often find Joyner in the shop working on hats behind the counter.
