The Ghosts of Kitschmas Past

It's that time of year when every single party guest has overdosed on spinach dip, mini franks, Chex Party Mix, and other cloying holiday treats. And that's not the worst part. Party season has just begun. It's going to be a Stepford Season’s Greetings if you're not careful.

That's why the Kitschy Christmas Party at Retro Redux is such a treat. Forget the Pottery Barn accouterments that make up your average suburban cookie-cutter holiday event. Retro Redux's revamp and redo of its clothing line is complete, as store owner Bradford Fontaine brought back a fresh stock of fashions from the left-coast state of Cali.

Join RR’s cast and crew for 1950s-style Better Homes & Gardens appetizers, a DJ spinning retro funk holiday tunes, and a visit from a swanky Santa Claus. Vintage barware is ultra hip this year, so pick up a tiki for your sweetie. Best of all, everything in the store is 25 percent off -- unless you're wearing the season's ugliest holiday sweater, which will score you the prize of a store gift certificate.
