Down in South Baltimore, the industrial non-touristy part of town, has been a business that's been family-owned for over 50 years. Thanks to the clever idea to run ads in Baltimore's alt weekly, thrifty non-jobbers have discovered this clothing emporium. There are basically 4 parts to the store. The first (and probably original) is their vintage and remnant section of gorgeous fabrics. Those who don't sew or know people who do will practically cry at the unfulfilled wardrobe potential. To one side of the cash register counter is a recessed section holding vintage designer clothes. Adolfos that Nancy Reagan would have loved at under $100? Yup! The main floor section has non-designer – but great – vintage clothing and shoes for men and women. Just ask for the plus-sized collection: the staff is so friendly! In back are the bargains: second-hand or close-out modern clothing, all under $15.
- Best Shopping: "Keep an eye on Groupon, Living Social for the occasional 50% off discount."
- Recommended as Best Shopping Because: This place is everything that's true Baltimore rolled in one: funky meets upscale meets frugal. You'll find vintage and modern clothing treasures.
