Interested in discovering unique, vintage pieces to upgrade your home or wardrobe? We at GirlCrew are here to help. Vintage stores are a great choice of ethical shopping as each piece—from clothing to furniture—is reused. Not only does this method of buying provide you with historic and one-of-a-kind items, but it also helps to protect the environment from further mass-manufacturing. It is truly a win-win! Check out these seven vintage stores in Austin that are sure to capture your retro soul.
