Anchorman is part kooky characters, part wacky one-liners; and of course, the delightfully, tacky clothes. For the latter, we can thank Amanda Ross-Hoffer. She owns Penny Lane Trading Company, a clothing store in Lincoln. Amanda also sells vintage fashion on eBay. That's where her brush with Hollywood began. "It was pretty exciting. I wasn't sure if I should believe it or not," Amanda said.
Last December an eBay user started buying up a lot of clothes. Unbeknownst to Amanda, this wasn't just any buyer of vintage fashion. She was the costume designer for one of the most anticipated comedies of the year: Anchorman 2. "She said that she loved our items, that we had great things and that she wanted to know if we could help her out," Amanda said.
Soon, Amanda found herself helping Tinseltown right from her store here in the Capital City. "She gave us the main actors sizes and all that and what to be looking for. So that was kind of fun," Amanda said.
Amanda went to the premiere Tuesday night to check out how the clothes looked on the big screen. "It was great. I loved everything about it. I was looking at the costuming and just all of the vintage décor. And it was hilarious of course," Amanda said.
