Have Liz Goldwyn—filmmaker, jewelry designer, and granddaughter of legendary Hollywood studio executive, Samuel Goldwyn—shop flea markets for sweater clips and hair pieces and suddenly granny's Sunday best is exclusive. The collection, which will be available at Opening Ceremony's LA outpost, ranges from $150-$350 and culls from the 1930s and 1960s. The LA Times reports: "After spending five months digging through thrift store bins and flea market tables, Goldwyn amassed 40 items for the New York and L.A. stores. The fashionable L.A. filmmaker has even more hidden away, but parting is such sweet sorrow. 'They yelled at me, she said of the sales staff who reminded her that her finds were not for keeps. 'It's always hard to give things up.'" [LAT]
