How do I write objectively when I practically live in this store? Answer: I can’t! I love this store and love the upbeat friendliness of Kim Sewald, the owner.
Nothing dampens Kim’s enthusiasm for vintage clothing and quality period costumes. I can bet that every time I stop by, Kim will be thrilled with her latest find and often modeling a new item. “Isn’t it the best?” Kim will say and with her trim figure, almost everything that comes in the store looks good on her. In fact, with Kim’s example, I was inspired to get down to my best weight – oh, clothes that will fit – until I met Kim, I had no idea clothes could be so much fun!
And who knew that besides average sewing skills I could fix Victorian lace – I didn’t know I had it in me – but I digress. I was in the store when consignment items arrived and there was an exquisite turquoise ring in the shipment. “How much for THAT, Kim?” Reasonably priced as it turned out and I have treasured this ring ever since and received countless compliments on it.
Personally I love being in the store when a 19 year old girl walks in with combat boots wearing a lace dress and of course she finds a new piece of clothing that she loves and that fits her figure perfectly thin.
And for this Halloween, Kim offers costume rentals such as 1920s, Victorian and Renaissance clothing. Come in and see for yourself.
