7 Vintage Boutiques Worth Perusing

Oldies but goodies

7 vintage boutiques we love!

Not all thrift shopping is created equal. Scour the city’s top secondhand destinations for standout gems you can wear without fear of a Who Wore It Best moment.

Put a Ring on It
Sustalux is still (incredibly) one of the city’s best-kept secrets. Buyer Dana Guyton makes private house calls (appointments to danasustalux@gmail.com) for viewing her glamorous preowned designer and one-of-a-kind finds; the ever-evolving collection of luxe accessories — handbags, shoes, jewelry — is to die for. 

Deals on Wheels
The chic refurbished trailer known as The Kippy Ding Ding returns in July with summer staples like Bermuda shorts, twirly skirts, and bright clutches. All you have to do is find it.

Pretty Woman
Frilly tulle-clad skirts, Ames Bros tees, and other quirky pieces abound at Anna Lange’s pink-walled Pretty Parlor.

Showstopper
There’s much to be found at both Red Light Vintage locations (Capitol Hill and the U District), but we love them for the serious selection of noncostumey dresses.

Label Lovers
Givenchy, Missoni, Burberry Prorsum. Those are just a few of the labels we found scavenging the wonderland that is Le Frock on a good day.

Eye Candy
The finely curated assortment of clothing and accessories at fledgling Kaleidoscope Vision make seeing the big picture easy. Browse lovely wares in the newly expanded home section to perk up your pad, too.  

Behind Closed Doors
Take cash for kicks at Ballard’s Boot Girl. Owner Susie Jarvis carries boots in all shapes, sizes, styles, and colors. Kicky clothes and other accessories round out the assortment.

John Wayne ain’t got nothing on your fringe game.
