Barbra Streisand creates a street of vintage shops..in her basement !

November 23, 2010

If you’re a vintage fashion lover, you’ll love this.

The one and only Babs has transformed the basement of her home into her own private shopping mecca . The ” shops ” include a Doll Shop, an Antiques store and a Sweets shop. She thought this would be a better way to store her amazing collection of antiques, antique gowns, dolls and costumes.

” Instead of just storing my things in the basement, I can make a street of shops and display them, ” says Barbra.

Street of dreams is more like it.

Go ahead and grab a cup of coffee; this is truly amazing.

I’d never take it off. I’d just walk around the house in it all day and ask people to bring me tea and crumpets and stuff.

And last but never least,  the collection of vintage shoes…
