Very cute spot to go shopping for an 80s prom party! Always something fun happening on First Friday, plus free wine.
A great curated collection of quality vintage pieces. Dresses, slips, boots for men & women
Not fancy, but great clothes – My girlfriend and I stopped in here while waiting on a table at LePigeon, and both ended up buying something. The store is nothing fancy, but they have a lot of great clothes. They have a nice selection of men's clothes (something that seems to be lacking in other vintage shops) and some really nice hats. I picked up a couple of ties (for only $8) and my girlfriend had a hard time choosing between three different dresses (she chose one from the 1950s that was less than $50). We'll definitely be back.
Over Priced for the Quality and Variety – I went in her a few weeks ago after hearing a few good things and it and driving by on my way home everyday. There wasn't much in the store and what there was, wasn't that great. The prices were pretty high for the quality of the clothing, although the sales girl was friendly. You;d proabaly have better luck up down the street at Hatties and Rockin Rose, or up at Lady Luck Vintage.
Fantastic Clothes – I don't usually have much luck at vintage stores, mostly because I don't have the patience. I always feel feel like the racks have been stuffed full of mediocre items with one or two cool things thrown in but at Bombshell, it's just the opposite. The store is full of great clothes in great condition, and looking at the price tags doesn't make you say, "Wait, are they SERIOUS?". The staff is friendly without being in your face and every time I've gone there have been all sorts of new things out. I will definately be back.
I love Bombshell! – The first time I went into Bombshell, I was very pleased to hear that it is owned by the same girl that owns the Lived-In Lover (another great store). Quite unlike her other store, Bombshell's focus is clothing. At the moment, she has more ladies clothing than men's, but her men's selection is still top notch. The store spacious and neatly organized. She has the best selection of ladies coats, cute cloches, and accessories. I found a fantastic black silk-velvet dress from the late '30s/early '40's, with a deeply cut neck and floral trim. The owner was really awesome and offered to hold it for a few days so I could decide if I really wanted it. I did. Her prices are honest and her clothing is in top condition. Go Bombshell!
The best vintage store in town. Everytime I've been to Bombshell I've found something that I loved! Everything is well lit and organized and the racks aren't crammed and crowded together like so many other vintage stores. The ladies who work there are always friendly and accomodating, they get new stuff all the time. It's so wonderful.
Best Vintage Shop in Town! – I was so happy I stumbled upon this place! They have gorgeous dresses, skirts...pretty much everything! I usually have a hard time finding vintage dresses that fit me but this store had more then enough to choose from. The lady said they just opened and I'm glad they did. It's going to be my first shopping stop when I'm looking for a pretty dress!
