Just across from the old Montgomery Ward building in Pigtown sits a frickin’ amazing used clothing store. We stumbled across it looking for fabric, but were drawn like drooling zombies to the huge vintage clothing section. The suede leather jacket with fringe that you pined for in high school? It’s here. So are slinky sequined sheaths, appliquéed wraparound skirts, curve-enhancing Mad Men-esque dresses, guayaberas, cowboy boots, and at least one pair of canvas lace-up rainbow-colored stiletto heels. Prices are higher than Goodwill’s, but come on, people. This is curated. (Plus if you want to paw through big vats labeled capris, there’s an area in the warehouse where everything is under $6.)
