Blast back to the past with vintage clothing and accessories from the '70s and '80s. – The Scene
Two brothers travel the country buying from the past to meet the shopping needs of the present 12- to 25-year-old set. Racks and shelves of vintage (and some new) clothing, shoes, accessories and trinkets contribute to a dizzyingly colorful display. Four roomy dressing rooms provide the perfect place to play dress-up in funky fashions you might not feel comfortable wearing in public.
This quirky store is primarily known for vintage clothing and retro knickknacks, like postcards and never-opened trading cards from the '70s and '80s. Remember those iron-on T-shirt decals? Get them here and adorn the shirt of your choice. Pick out wacky colored wigs for costumes or to stand out in a crowd. You'll also find vintage and new clothing including dresses, overalls, a huge assortment of used Levis, leather jackets, Pea coats and Dickey's bags. New shoes include brands like Puma, adidas and Dr. Scholl's, and old Air Jordans are popular.
Vintage - Quirky and Cool. – The merchandise makes my parents reminiscent and me laugh. I love all the oddities and intrictaes, such ciggarette cases from the 60's and 70's, jewelry, hats, accessories, all kinds. Iron-on tee shirts are a lot of fun too.
Modern & Vintage Panache – I've been shopping at Strange Cargo for years. The store's offbeat charm will make you a repeat customer. Elvis Coffee Mugs, Hula Girls, Retro Clothes, Posters, you name it. All located about a 5 minute walk south from Wrigley Field.
The iron-on T-shirt service is a stroke of brilliance. Choose a shirt and an iron-on design from their great selection, or design your own iron-on and they do the rest.
Definitely a shop worth checking out in the city.
