Still, one of my favorite spots to shop Seattle vintage is Beats + Bohos in Ballard. Tucked up and away from the busy street bustle of 15th Avenue NW, Beats + Bohos Vintage and Vinyl is chock full of amazing things! Last time I was there, I pulled out the trusty iPhone and snapped shots of some my personal favorites- Pendleton plaids, 50's cocktail dresses, a houndstooth hat, a rare beaded tribal belt. All the while listening to some great old vinyl records being spun over the stereo. Some classical music rubbed elbows with a spaghetti western movie soundtrack which went to town on some great classic garage bands. I'm mixing my music metaphors, I know, but the effect was heady.
You can get a taste of this effect if you're in the 'hood, this Saturday- Beats and Bohos is putting on a party which entails a big sale on the vintage and the vinyl AND some DJ's spinning you like a merry-go-round from 5 pm to late night. You can get the deets HERE.
You'll also find a goodly amount of my own vintage clothing for sale there- right now there's a few racks of some of my best classic cardigans, spring-timg plaids (think browns, creams and greens) and some great Carnaby Street 1960's style raincoats and jackets. Oh, and saying "Rosebud" right before you check out will get you 10% off your purchase.
