A few days ago, we went to downtown Birmingham, Alabama to roam around for a while. It reminded me that I live near an actual city with big buildings and everything. Anyways, we walked by this store called Reed Books and we just had to go in. It was really cool. They had every old book you could imagine, and it was packed from floor to ceiling. They also had a ton of antiques and oddities, which are always interesting.
Next, we went to a place that I had totally forgotten about, which is just shameful on my part. We actually do have a vintage store in our own town. It's called What's On 2nd, and it's really awesome. They have a good amount of vintage clothes at fairly reasonable prices (not thrift store prices mind you).
I think I should win a prize for finding the most adorable, awesome little girl's dress of all time. Seriously, is this not the cutest thing ever? I kind of wish I could wear it myself!
We had a lovely time roaming our city. I complain sometimes that Birmingham is boring and has nothing to offer, but all it takes is a little exploring to find the good stuff.
What's a unique local store that you've discovered in your town?
