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.

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.
