Spectre Vintage is, according to its Facebook page, "A chic, unique furniture boutique specializing in MCM, vintage mod and other timeless classics."
Dandy describes itself as Midventurous Modern, which is a good way of saying, really cool stuff your mom and grandma tossed but you wish they'd have kept for you. There's furniture, clothing, home decor and much more in an alluring setting, all curated by the owners, Ryan and Jess Day.
Let's be honest, sometimes art can be heavy. And sometimes the exhibitions at the Milwaukee Art Museum are similarly weighty. But right now, MAM is serious about something altogether different. "Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America" is bursting with color, with playfulness, with, well, fun.
