Just as Anna Wintour wanted to lift the spirits of American shoppers down on their luck—and low on cash—with her Fashion’s Night Out ode to retail, a collective of hip-hop bloggers (spearheaded by Dallas Penn) are making shopping fun again with the first-ever Vintage Polo Ralph Lauren Swap Meet x Concert x Convention. More intriguing than your average sample sale or pop-up store, this is a full-on shopping party for vintage-gear collectors. Expect to see DJs and live performances all day by rappers Thirstin’ Howl 3rd and Sadat X, among others, and a slew of clothing vendors with outrageous deals on the floor. Free giveaways, too!
