New Blog and Upcoming Events

Welcome to my new blog.  I want to start out telling you about who I am.  I'm Cheryl Long and have been a designer of clothes/handbags/ and jewelry for over 23 years.  I sell at various markets in Texas, North Carolina, California and Arizona to name a few.  My mixed media contemporary photographs were collected by many and have been included and incorporated into collections and museums worldwide.  I am pleased that I even have images in the Harry Ransome Museum archives in Austin Texas. 

My business started by being convinced by a collector to put three images on a T-Shirt line!  Pure West was born with phenomenal sales to boutiques throughout the world.  In 1989 A full scale ladies romantic western line was established, utilizing antique fabrics and designs incorporated into modern day wear.  Now 23 years later ... Pure west/Pure Vintage is still evolving with edgy creative ...even custom leather and vintage elements in their couture and jewelry.

We just returned from a fabulous show at Zapp Hall and are already getting geared up for our next show.  We set up at this venue twice a year so you can find us back here for the Fall Show. 
Here a few pictures from our show at Zapp Hall:
