Holiday Giveaway #4: Amalgamated Classic Clothing and Dry Goods

Holiday Giveaway #4: Amalgamated Classic Clothing and Dry Goods

A warm welcome to Amalgamated Classic Clothing and Dry Goods for day four of our Eight Days of Del Ray Holiday Giveaway. We’ve partnered with several members of the Del Ray Business Association to offer giveaways to our readers throughout the month of December. Keep reading to find out how to enter!

I love walking by Amalgamated Classic Clothing and Dry Goods to see the vignettes owner Shelley White has assembled in the front window. Shelley has a knack for re-imagining vintage, making it current and modern. Each piece in the shop is carefully curated, a remembrance of earlier times and relics of the designers who made fashion what it is today.

For women, try a fabulous beaded 1930s era dress, a shimmering clutch purse or a delicate hat for a special occasion.

Accessories such as jewelry, shoes and scarves are simple ways to embellish a basic weekday outfit.

  1. hi to Shelly and happy holidays!

  2. Shelly is always helpful and her stock is top quality!

  3. I love their lookbook. I would give this gift certificate to my husband and try to schedule a “look” consultation for him. He loves the old classic looks but doesn’t quite know how to consistently achieve them…

  4. I would use the gift certificate to buy something special and unique for my mom. We both love vintage items!

  5. I love this shop because in my past life I worked on Broadway – and I love the costume design/sourcing work they do with Broadway and the theatre! I’d use the certificate either towards a new coat for myself or for something special for my husband – maybe cufflinks or a hat!

  6. Was so excited when they first moved to Del Ray – such a great shop to have as part of the community. If I won, I would give to my daughter for Christmas who loves all the things they display in their window.

  7. I’d use the gift certificate to finally get myself into Amalgamated!

  8. I really need some help finding a holiday gift for my girlfriend. And “some help” would probably be an understatement. The gift certificate would help in making our one-year anniversary and first Christmas as a couple really memorable. Did I mention I need gift help?

  9. I would use the gift certificate to find a cute bowtie for my husband who has Everything!

  10. My husband and I host a Mad Men themed party every year and I’d love to put this towards a new to me vintage dress.

  11. I would pick up a gift for my husband!

  12. Certain men in my life need more bow ties, so this gift certificate would be used for them!

  13. My boyfriend got me a dress from there for our anniversary and it fits perfectly. I love the fact that they’re in Del Ray and I’m looking forward to my next anniversary gift from there!

  14. I have a weakness for Hawaiian shirts. When i was in college, I had a Hawaiian shirt for every day of the week. Then I stopped wearing them as much because my wife told me they were tacky. But I love the vintage Hawaiian shirts at Amalgamated, and even my wife says those are OK. So, if I were to be selected, I would put it towards the purchase of a classy vintage Hawaiian shirt!

  15. I so love beautiful vintage finds. I use it to purchase a holiday gift for my husband.

  16. Love the community feel in Del Ray! Would use it to purchase something for my wife and daughter.

  17. I always come in to admire the vintage hats and handbags – love this shop!!
