"Why would somebody want to come
here and buy something used for $5
when they can go down the street to TJ
Maxx and get it new for $5?" asked
Gladys Pressley, an employee at
Downstairs Attic on Stadium Blvd.
"It's a hard business when you don't
have much stock."
Merchants say they don't bother
shopping for vintage clothing at auc-
tions or garage sales because people
have either sold all of their old clothing
or it is in too poor condition to resell.1
Instead, they have "sources" around 1
the state-and throughout the Mid-1
west-from whom they buy vintage
clothing, often at higher prices.

Clothing on State Street, said "we used 1

Other vintage mercha'nts have tried'
to carve their own nitch in the local
market by selling something their
competitors don't. Vintage Clothing,
for instance, specializes in silk
kimonoes, ranging in price from $15 to
$60, and white dinner jackets. Once
Possessed, located on State Street, is
known for its linens. And one can even
buy old Vogue patterns for dresses and
suits at Ruby Tabu, also on State Street.
Local vintage merchants are hoping
to pull through the slow spring months
by hawking strapless party dresses
made of satin and crepe along with
tuxedos and dinner jackets to prom-
