Lets cut to the chase. Treasure hunters after rare designer clothing and vintage (or maybe just a good bargain) should head to Piedmont and/or College avenues. Most finds are concentrated there. College Strip Since it opened in 2009, Pretty Penny has been a standout in the vintage clothing scene. Back racks organize dresses, pants and skirts from different decades, while the front is new stuff. In a narrow space Soiree Vintage stocks well-chosen mid-century dressier items. Theres also a nice selection of new jewelry and accessories. Because you cant complete the look without the cat-eye vintage frames, a big shout-out to Phoenix Optical, which claims to have the largest selection of vintage eyewear in the world. A little off the main path (a few blocks from College) is Telegraph Avenues loved Down at Lulus with a more rocker vibe (lots of 80s stuff here). Pink walls and a hair boutique are part of the package. Dont forget about the tunesStranded has shelves of used books and vinyl, kind of out of our purview but were just saying. Piedmont Strip Mercy Vintage Now is but one of the heavyweights on Piedmont Avenue, with a large selection of well-curated items from multiple decades. The other, Rare Bird, is a treasure trove of not just clothing (also mens and childrens), but cameras, jewelry and home decor. Add to that vintage shopping at Euro-esque designer Bis and Resurrect, which also carries handmade clothing items and art. Away from the hubs above but worth it are Uptowns Owl N Wood run by a local artist of Afro-Scandinavian heritage who curates new, vintage and local items. The well-selected Halmoni carries clothing, shoes and sometimes plus sizes. Temescal is good to hit up for a few scattered finds like Pine & Elder, which carries many manly accouterments. For the ladies, Minds Eye Vintage is full of stylish pieces waiting to be mixed into your wardrobe.
