Hey fellow vintage lovers and happy Sunday!
Last week I hosted my third live video chat to talk about beautiful things from fashion’s past, and it was a HUGE SUCCESS!
Tonight I’m hosting another live video chat to welcome even **more** vintage lovers into the fun event.
Tonight, we will all be sharing a few of our favorite/most recent vintage finds to talk about!
It’s almost like a show & tell, but you can share your pieces with questions/suggestions so that the rest of the group can chime in.
Plus, we can help one another to identify historical significance of the piece’s style and/or brand name.
Here are the details so that you have the who, what, where, when and why down and can jump into my hangout tonight to share in on the fun!
WHAT: Live video chat between me and fellow vintage lovers
REQUIREMENTS: Have 1-2 pieces of your favorite vintage ready to share and talk about!
WHERE: Google + hangout. Add me to your circles by clicking here.
WHEN: TONIGHT, Sunday November 13th from 8PM – 9PM EST
HOW: At 7:50PM I will start “hanging out” in the video center. If you are following me on Google+ you should see that I’m “hanging out” in your stream, and you can click the hangout button to join.
It will look like this in YOUR STREAM:
An expanded view of how it should look in your stream. Click “JOIN THIS HANGOUT” to hang!
This is how the hangout announcement looks AFTER the hangout, in my stream:
I will also link the hangout directly to the Sammy Davis Vintage Facebook page at 7:50PM so that you can click from there into the Google+ hangout directly.
WHAT YOU NEED: You need a built in camera to your computer for this to work, or one that you have attached externally. Most computers have cameras internally: I have a PC (Hewlett Packard) with a built in web cam and microphone.
Here are the best settings I’ve personally found, so that when you join the hangout and find that you can’t hear and/or no one can see you, to change your settings to these for optimal results.
You may have to experiment for a minute at the beginning of the chat. We’ll help you test your settings so that you’re loud & clear!
WHY: To share your great vintage finds and potentially learn more about them! I hope tonight’s hangout will inspire you to BRAG & BOAST about the great style you own. We all have reason to inspire one another and I have high hopes tonight is going to do just that.
Discussion points with our pieces:
*What is it? Show it off!*
*Where did you find it? Thrift or vintage store?*
*How much was it?*
*What era do you think it is?*
*How have you worn it?*
*Why you love it!*
And of course …
*Future plans for Google+ hangouts to meet and greet with OTHER vintage fashion experts!*
Last week, Michelle of The Eccentric Diva on YouTube shared one of her new ’60s dresses from the Manhattan Vintage Show. She later sent me a picture of herself wearing it!
OTHER QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
What if I can’t join the hangout? There’s a chance you may not be able to join because the hangouts in Google+ are limited to 10 people. I plan on regularly hosting these hangouts, and potentially streaming through Justin.tv so that you can watch without participating. So be on the lookout for these awesome developments in the near future!
Do I have to stay in the hangout for the entire hour? NO! You can definitely come and go as you please, but remember that people may grab your spot if you leave early!
Do I have to talk during this Google+ hangout? Ideally, yes! The Google+ hangout is where we can have our discussion, but someday soon I will be streaming these chats to Justin.Tv so that you can simply “watch” like an audience member. I may even record them to upload onto YouTube someday soon! Stay tuned!
What if I don’t like the topics of this hangout? That’s OK! Future hangouts will revolve around different topics, like the art of selling on Etsy vs. Ebay, or how to “find” the best vintage pieces and price to sell appropriately or just ideas on how to wear for yourself! I plan on focusing each video chat so that the audience who wants to learn about these topics is inspired to attend.
Thank you everyone for your interest in participating in tonight’s THIRD live video chat!
I hope to see so many of you there! If you have any questions before the chat, please don’t hesitate to send me an email [email protected]
See you on the computer screen soon, vintage lovers!
