Two floors of utter vintage clothing heaven. The prices are quite high, but it's fair game considering the quality of the clothing and how well the boutique is organized (no diving through piles of random piece of clothing here - in Blitz, everything is neatly divided by style and easy to find).

When I think of vintage shopping, I think of old basements or stores with racks of one-off pieces of clothing. It's sort of a crap shoot what you're going to find. If you're into the hunt, it's great, but if you're not and want that retro or unique kind of look, it can be frustrating.
