After a fun morning shopping at Happy Flea Market in Roanoke Virgina I took a walk through the downtown market area near the
Taubman Museum and discovered Freckles, a fabulous vintage clothing store.
What is Freckles like? Here is a bit of info about this wonderful vintage store taken from their Facebook page:
“At Freckles, we love all things retro, handmade and unique. Whether you are looking for works by local artists, a fabulous 40’s cocktail dress or some custom painted shoes, Freckles promises to deliver.”
What could be better than that?
In the front area of the store, there is also a charming place called Get where you can get coffee, tea, and…. Bubble tea! Vintage + bubble tea? Obviously a match made in heaven!
Walk towards the back of Get and you will find yourself passing through a magical doorway into Freckles. Freckles is stocked with vintage hats, shirts, dresses and an eclectic mix of collectibles.
While perusing the colorful clusters of clothing, I came upon my new favorite accessory— a beautiful reversible cape with brick red on one side and a plaid pattern on the other.
Here’s me trying it on:
The prices were very reasonable, and I couldn’t help myself but to snatch up this great vintage piece right away.
Next time you’re in Roanoke, pay Freckles and Get a visit, you are sure to have a great time and come out with some wonderful vintage treasures!
