After a fun and successful event last year, Rare Vntg will be back at the second annual Love On The Streets Festival in Philadelphia! This year, we’ll be vending our selection of premium vintage sportswear alongside 50+ other local businesses.
Love On The Streets takes place Saturday July 9th from 12PM-10PM at Paine’s Park, located on the Schuylkill River Trail south of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In addition to the vendors, the event will include skateboard competitions (with a $2,000 cash prize) musical performances, food trucks, a beer garden and more! Here’s an excerpt from the festival page:
In its second year as Philadelphia’s premier skateboard and urban culture festival, Love On The Streets (LOTS Fest) aims to reimagine skateboarding in the city through art and culture. The festival will transform Paine’s Park on July 9th, 2016 into a destination where communities collaborate and celebrate. Through face-to-face interactions with skateboarders, musicians, street and circus performers, visual artists, and local business, LOTS Fest encourages friends, families, and neighbors to spread knowledge and awareness about the importance of preserving urban culture in Philadelphia. The money raised for this year’s event will benefit FPSF efforts to rebuild and diversify city spaces and experiences that foster the love of skateboarding and urban creativity.
We look forward to seeing everyone we met last year and hope to meet plenty of new customers too, stop by and say hello!

There are few pieces in the vintage sportswear world as sacred as the satin Starter jacket. The jacket was popularized in the 80’s & early 90’s as a stable on the sidelines and in the stands. Other brands like Chalkline and Swingster also got in the business of satin, retailing their own versions of the popular jacket style. During the 80’s & 90’s many fans customized their own satin jackets by embroidering a name or adding a patch to the sleeve.
At Rare Vntg, we wanted to continue the trend of customizing the satin jacket by putting our own spin on the classic garment. Drawing inspiration from the original Boston Celtics 1957 warm up jackets, we added numbers and patches designed to honor some of the most legendary players and moments of sports history. Each jacket tells a story. Each jacket represents a moment in history.
The entire collection of 40+ custom jackets will retail between $150-$300. They are set to release Black Friday exclusively on rarevntg.com
The holiday season is right around the corner; Rare Vntg kicked off the busy season by setting up shop at Sneaker Con Washington DC this past weekend. The event featured hundreds of vendors selling all types of rare sneakers, clothing, art and more! Thousands of sneaker heads began lining up outside the DC Armory as early as 9 AM for their chance to get in the door and experience sneaker heaven.
During our time at the event, we met a ton of great people and had some fantastic conversations about sports, sneakers and of course vintage sportswear! All in all, it was a great day; we want to thank everyone who stopped by our table and all of the customers who made a purchase from us. We’re looking forward to the next event!
