Roulette Vintage: a store

In Shop-ify, Uncategorized on March 8, 2010 at 1:44 pm

I rarely write about clothing stores, but thrift is thrift..eh? While ambling around Carrboro, NC I stepped into a delightful store by the name of Roulette Vintage. Their goal is simple: to painstakingly pick vintage goods and make them available to us so that we do not have to go to the scary mall. The owners, Kara LaFleur and Rebecca Moore, have created an earnest little place to find vintage clothing, accessories and all types of neat stuff made by local designers. You can check out their blog HERE. Their Etsy shop HERE. And their website HERE. Or just stop by the store at 118 1/2 East Main Street, Carrboro, NC. They are very welcoming!

Look for this sign.

This nice lady greeted us at the door.

Father and Son – a store

At 107 West Hargett Street, downtown Raleigh, NC, there is a store that I walked into and almost immediately… walked out. Not because I hated it, but because I loved it too much. Father and Son Antiques is home to Second Floor Vintage and Southern Swank. Just walking up to the window got me giddy. This place has 3 stories and a basement holding some of the coolest mid-century junk I have ever seen in one place. I had to leave because I will need several hours to peruse the entire 10,000 square feet, and I was pressed for time. I was going to lunch with a friend to Sitti at 137 South Wilmington Street to have some Lebanese food (It was delicious by the way. So go there). So, I am planning a day to go and look and look and look. There is sooooo much stuff that is right up ThriftCircus’ alley and the prices are not yardsale-esque, but they are reasonable. They have a website and shop on the way, but I suggest setting aside a few hours with your best friend and making a day of it. I will post again after I have my shopping day bananarama!

These pictures only show a teensy bit of what they actually have!
