Aptly named for its range of services, Divine Finds and Grinds (DFG) caters to an ever-growing demand for high quality vintage apparel and accessories made by some of the top designers in the world. Danielle has a great eye for authentic 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s pieces, and even travels to the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show twice a year to show off her finds. It is there that this modest Buffalonian sells her goods to celebrities the likes of Donna Karan, Ann Sui, and Betsey Johnson.
DFG offers a cafe setting complete Wi-Fi for your laptop. They will also be designing a whimsical cafe courtyard in the near future where guests can surf and sip in style. For those of you that are gearing up for The World’s Largest Disco in downtown Buffalo, this is a great place to rent or buy a spectacular outfit.
