Part One: Vintage clothing Shops We Recommend

In the Vintage Clothing trade, these are called Brick and Mortar Shops. These are the dedicated people who put an awning out, stock a physical shop, hire help, pay rent and insurance, and actually show up every day to meet and greet the general public. As an online seller, they have my utmost respect. I can work in my jammies and robe, work whatever hours I choose, take a TV break, play the odd computer game and take lunch. These fine people more disciplined than I, and in this economy, very brave!
And so we present Part One of:
