This retro resale store is located on the perimeter of the funky South Congress antique strand. The merchandise literally spills out into the street with furniture and oddities galore. Inside, there is rack after rack of vintage men's and women's clothing representing all eras, from Western-style shirts to Fifties frocks and Seventies lounge. Unlike many resale shops today, this shop has resisted the urge to jack prices sky high. Here you can find great treasures at affordable prices.
If you are looking either for ultra-modern or retro-inspired shoes for men or women, this is the place to go.

There is more to explore here beyond shoes, as the store also carries an array of accessories. Browse through belts, wallets, T-shirts, costume jewelry, even wigs and incense, to find that offbeat, must-have item. The space is small and often crowded on weekends, but worth the effort.
Consider this north Austin mall as an alternative to the colder, more impersonal mega-malls that have become standard in recent years. This shopping center is a bit cozier, with some unusual finds inside. Despite its smaller size, shoppers will still be able to browse department stores like Oshman's and Bealls, or catch a movie at the resident theater. In addition, the mall offers the only ice skating rink in town, and is home to specialty shops such as Gamefellas, Lammes Candies, and Guitar Center, as well as the Museum of Fine Arts.
Nestled within the downtown, is this cozy little slice of Central American ambiance.

Whatever you have in mind, this place either has it, or can get it for you. Browsing is half the fun; the place is a treat for the senses.
