At Haberdash, the vintage boots are on a roll.
Vintage-clothing dealer Amy "Punky" Chase has quite the local following. Fashionistas flock to her Punky Style blog, and her 140-character outbursts are a twitterati favorite (@punkystyle). The Worcester native has the goods to back up the hype with Haberdash, the vintage store on wheels that she parks at flea markets and private shopping parties. Though Haberdash now has an e-commerce arm, it’s worth making an appointment to see the setup in real life: Inside the silver trailer sits an eclectic mix of furs (up to $100), dresses ($15–$30), and belts ($10 and up). As for the boots from the ’70s and ’80s? Grab a pair and you’ll be ready to roll. Boots, $20–$60, haberdashvintage.com.
