Look no further, there is vintage fashion in the South! Who would have known that some of the vintage fashion is comparable to some of the vintage stores in NYC or DC. But better way to introduce it would be consignment stores in the Charlotte area right on South Boulevard.
When it comes to vintage fashion, all we think of are the eras that inspire us the most. Like the 40’s flapper, or the 70’s disco diva. So many few little niches in Charlotte have these fabulous little pieces, but searching will take a little research. A few places come to mind when searching in Charlotte. One would be Sleepy Poet on South Boulevard. (www.sleeppoetstuff.com) With it’s eclectic entrance and free popcorn once you walk in, it is sure to be a fun search for vintage fashion.
One of the best booths to visit is Kitschy-Cool, with it’s timeless pieces and inspiring styles, there is sure to be something for everyone. Best part of it all is the price tag. You can get a 60’s mink hat for $6.00 or a fun 50’s silk scarf for $3.00. Men’s clothing is there too, you can get a “Mad Men” style tuxedo for fun, or some great crocodile loafers. Whatever it is, they have it there for you.
Also, attached to the Sleepy Poet Consignment Mall is Consignments on South (www.consignmentsonsouth.com). Also, just as fabulous as Sleepy Poet, rooms seperate all the great fashion they have. For the shopper looking to get in and out, with stuff seperated by men’s and women’s, this is the place to go! Always have a good deal, and great owners that greet you with a smile!
With this great location in Charlotte, please be sure to dedicate a day to visit this place. Not many consignment stores have this eclectic feel, and great prices. You will be sure to find some thing you love. Sleepy Poets motto is to “Reuse, Rebuy, Recycle”, as one man’s trash is another man’s gold.
