2015 Best Vintage Clothing

SoWa Vintage Market

If the thrill is in the hunt, then giddiness springs eternal at SoWa’s weekly conglomerate of throwback merchants. Clothing hawkers come and go throughout the year, but you’re always guaranteed a healthy stock of vintage couture, bargain furs, broken-in cowboy boots, Peggy Olson party dresses, Eisenhower-era cardigans, and outré scarves and costume jewelry. A springtime move from the drafty power plant to cozier digs beneath the galleries has reinvigorated the scene and attracted a host of new vendors.
