Washington Ave., Madison Style, Rediscovered ReThreads expands its vintage selection By Kelsey Sorenson Shopping vintage and resale is all about the hunt. You never know what you're going to find—trash, treasure or garments that give you painful flashbacks to the '80s. But when you're looking to score something unexpected, there's no better place to prowl than boutiques offering gently used goods that will give your wardrobe a per- sonality all its own. Already a staple among retail shops lin- ing State Street, ReThreads, the popular vintage/resale outlet has become a favor- ite among both bargain shoppers and the fashion-forward alike, so much so they've recently expanded to the west side with a brand new storefront. Bursting at the seams with designer labels and awesome accessories, navigate your way through the vintage and designer selections to zero in on an ideal addition to your closet. And while there are plenty of goodies for the retro hipster, store manager Jodi Meier explains that women (and men) perusing for any style—from high-end and profes- sional to casual and trendy—will find plen- ty to try on. 16 BRAVA Magazine November 2011 With timeless styles at bargain-friendly prices, ReThreads is a great destination (times two!) for the fashion-hungry shop- per looking to add something unique to their everyday ensembles. Why buy vintage and resale: Nothing beats the thrill of the hunt, the score and then pulling out less from your wallet to enjoy it all. Meier's vintage trends: What's hot on the racks mirrors many vintage styles that have been around for ages: Wide leg pants, vintage labels (especially Coach) and fur look-alikes are all re-emerging this fall. You can sell your clothes here, too: ReThreads is always looking for quality textiles and designer pieces. The store buys gently used men's and women's clothing, both modern and vintage.
