It was a beautiful Chicago spring in 2008...

When we opened our doors of business and we've been bringing the best vintage clothing from around the world ever since.  We strive to bring our customers unique, fashion-forward, affordable vintage clothing - everything from buttery-soft t-shirts to 50s party dresses to grungy 90s duds.  As of 2017 we've relocated from our original space by the Jumping Bean to a bright 1500 sq. ft. storefront in historic Thalia Hall, smack-dab in the middle of Pilsen! 

Whether you're new to vintage or a seasoned collector we've got you covered.  Our staff has decades of combined experience in the vintage industry - we've worked closely with stylists, designers, costumers, and other retailers - and we love helping all of our customers find exactly what they're searching for.  Stop in and say hi, if you're not in Chicago then be sure to follow us below for updates as well as select items we sell online.

We love bringing old clothes to life and look forward to sharing our finds with you!
