Vintage Boutiques – Tallahassee, FL

As you know Tallahassee is a large college town, home of FSU. But with this being said, to my surprise they lack ample amounts of vintage shops. I went to a few just to check out the scene. A little too pricey for my standards. Yes, I am a picker and would never pay retail for vintage. But for others, these shops actually have amazing items if you don’t like to dig through the piles and deal with the 100 degree weather at the thrift shops.

Remember When

1651 North Monroe Street – Tallahassee, FL

This shop is in a row of vintage cottages. It was closed today, but hope to head back before the end of the week.

Out of the Attic

1211 N Monroe – Tallahassee, FL

This shop rocks! It is a collaboration of 8 vintage dealers. The shop is filled with vintage jewelry, accessories and home decor. I talked to one of the dealers today, Joy, and she gave us a little secret about the owner. She is also on a road trip up in NC, Oh we have some competition out there. 🙂

This display is genius. I might have to steal the idea.

My new love is hats. You know it is the first item Coco Chanel (my idol) designed. I think I am going to start wearing them again.

My father was a  huge collector of radios and would have loved this classic find.

  1. I have a vintage Etsy shop and live in Monticello. I have frequented the Goodwill’s around Tally and some are way too pricey for me too! But I always manage to find something wonderful:) I want to try the Thomasville shop you mentioned in another post. Happy hunting!

    • Becky – Happy Hunting to you as well.. I will be back on the road in August, hopefully will drive through Monticello to hit Wag the Dog.
