When old is new again

If you've started to think about shopping for spring, Elaine Klausman has one suggestion - look to the past.

Klausman deals in vintage clothing and accessories and can't help but suggest a kicky Suzy Perette sundress or a sleek-and-sleeveless Halston gown.

"I look for great style. That's the important thing," she says, showing off these items and more on a recent afternoon in her Bedford home.

This weekend, Klausman will be one of some 25 dealers exhibiting at the inaugural Valentine's Vintage Fashion Show and Sale at the DoubleTree Hotel in Tarrytown.

The two-day event is designed to put the spotlight on vintage clothing, accessories, textiles and jewelry from the Victorian era through the 1980s.
