This long-standing spot for Seattle vintage has it all. Seriously they have clothes from pretty much every decade and they also claim to be Seattle’s biggest vintage clothing shop. Honestly, it’s probably true as the store has an overwhelming number of racks that are definitely worth sorting through.
