On the heels of Haight Ashbury and the Summer of Love

A product of the  hippie movement of the 1960’s a young man named Dick Hayne planted a seed in the maze of streets and trees that make up West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In the 1970s he opened a store and called it Free People. Free People nurtured the young people who lived there and shopped there, who looked for a little of their own freedom in the clothes they wore. Dick’s store grew into a clothing design business that now supplies over 1000 stores worldwide. Today Free People has evolved into a more mature, contemporary brand. It allows twenty-something women to appreciate the line of clothing that caters to their intelligence, creativity and individuality, while keeping with great quality and affordability.

The Free People collection offers countless options, so that even if you take your best pal shopping, you won’t come out looking at all alike. And if you want your colors and patterns all mixed up, that’s even better. You can find order in chaos by picking through a completely unpredictable selection of sweaters, knits and skirts.

This fall Aphrodite hung its first free people collection in the Cheap and Chic Boutique and the response has been overwhelming.  We will be featuring some of the Free People Collection at the Shaking Conventions  event this Sunday, Sept 29 at The Old Barn Gallery in Pomquet between 2 and 4 pm.
