Best vintage in Austin – I have been a vintage clothing collector for years, and I have found better stuff here than anywhere else in Austin. I thought they closed down, then I found the new location, which is even better!
Cowgirl boots and vintage – Really needed some new boots and tried out Flashback in their new location on South First Street. Found a BUNCH of selections even for my hard to fit feet. Marsha was super helpful and I left with a great pair exactly what I needed along with a couple of great shirts and a belt.
Vintage Galor – I love this cute little vintage store on south 1st. I mosied in there to find an after wedding dress and found a very beautiful tangerine backless swoop necked number. Marsha (the owner) pulled out all gems for me and I walked out with original brides made gifts, too. I highly recommend giving this store a visit.
Pull back the beads and enter the tripped-out, velvety world of fashions time forgot. – In Short
Rap music plays softly in the background. Women's dresses, lingerie and evening wear from the '20s through the '80s fill two rooms. Mixer sets, wallets and bowling trophies add to the male mystique in the men's room. Imported fabrics, religious paintings and paper lanterns decorate the ceiling and walls. Past pop cultural moments include Nehru jackets, children's wooden shoes, bumper stickers and teen mags featuring Robby Benson, Donny and Marie, and the original Freddie Prinze.
Horrific customer service – Yeah, many unique finds in this place but I received the worst customer service when I shopped here recently. The girl at the cash register, Romy?, was nothing but rude and sour-faced. I was trying to find something specific for a costume party and she snapped at me and then eyed up my boyfriend!@! Will never go here again as long as this meanie is working here! Leave your boyfriends behind if you do go!
User review by itsirhc – Maybe things have changed in this store because their stock encompasses all ages, is of high quality and is priced resonably. The picture given does not do this little shop justice.
