Custom Johnny Was Trunk Show at The Gypsy Wagon
February 27, 2014
Look before you leap at Dallas Hit List store The Gypsy Wagon’s special Johnny Was Trunk Show happening now through Sunday. We call this a “custom” trunk show, because The Gypsy Wagon is skipping the whole “guessing what our shoppers like” game (even though they are so good at it), and bringing the designer’s samples of vintage-inspired bohemian looks straight to you. Pick the dress/tunic/blouse YOU want, and the The Gypsy Wagon will custom order it for you in time for pick-up in May or June. Johnny Was sister lines Biya, 4 Love & Liberty and 3J Workshop will be represented as well, and you’ll receive 10% off your first item, 20% off the second, 30% off the third and 40% off your fourth item.
