Vintage Shops We Reccommend, Part 2

May I reccommend a shop we found a couple weeks ago?

Street Scene in Lexington , Ky. They are about a year old, and a very nicely done shop. Attracive, well lit, and spacious. They carry a good selection of reasonably priced women's and men's vintage clothing and accessories, ca 1940s - 1970s along with a small selection of reproduction 50s. I did rather covet a Pucci purse in the jewelry case. They also carry a selection of moderne furniture and good interior accessories.

Plus the smell of fresh coffee and baked goods wafts through an open doorway into the next shop, whose name I didn't get, but should be called "All Things Tea and Coffee" Coffee Shop .

So you can vintage shop and get a great cup of coffee with a yummy treat without going outside.

Perfect.

And a follow up to Vintage Shops in the Cincinnati area from Part 1:

Our long time compatriot Nancy at Talk of the Town on Reading Rd. is doing great - stop by!
We didn't get to see George at Casablanca, we just plain ran out of time. But Nancy says they are there and doing great.
Downtown Nostalgic on Calhoun St. doesn't seem to be open at this time - no hours posted, no answer to phone calls.
The Vintage Vault is GONE.
Duck Creek Antique Mall on Madison Rd. had a surprising amount of vintage clothing, and there is very nice Thai restaurant, Lemon Grass, at 2666 Madison some blocks toward downtown from the Mall.
