Please note: Our inventory is limited as we may have only received a few posters in total. Most of our items are obtained from film premieres, studios, and from autographed hounds such as the one in the story below:
Hello internet. My niece told me that I should tell this story to you, so here goes. I'm an old woman nearing the end of my life. I'm not afraid, nor am I full of regrets. I've lived quite a live, one that most women could only dream of. And I'm grateful for everyone I've met.
One of the best ones, however, was a woman full of soul, character, and wit. She was vibrant, both in and out, and was a joy to be around. Unfortunately, she's no longer with us. She passed on way before I did. And as I mourned my soul sister's passing, so did the rest of the world. Today, she's revered as an icon.
Who is this woman, you may ask? Well, she was none other than the great Janis Joplin. Gone too soon but never forgotten, Joplin came to the music scene like a tidal wave. Everyone, myself included was fascinated by her fearlessness, her brazenness, and her creativity. She was one of a kind, and I'm proud to have called her my friend. No, I'm proud to have called her my sister!
I used to run a vintage shop in New York when Janis became famous. Who do you think lent her all those crazy fashions? Though she styled herself, many of her pieces came from the shop I curated when I was young. That's where we bonded, over our love of self-expression. Sometimes, she'd even scold me for trying to dress like her, telling me that I should dress more like myself. Could she blame me for being influenced by the biggest style star of that time?
Anyways, I will never forget our friendship. She even gave me a couple of her posters, many of which she signed, to remember her by in case she'd be out for too long. Little did I know, the last time I saw her in person would be the last time I saw her alive.
Here’s to you, my soul sister! I’m coming up soon! I hope you saved a couple of groovy clothes for me up there!
