And the tough times continue for vintage clothing stores and boutiques...

This last Saturday I shopped at the new consignment store "Eleven" on 11th & A. They replaced the fabric store that had been there for ages. EV Grieve reported on them when they were about to open.

They had a great selection! I bought four tops. I plan to go back again and again. Please let's keep our neighborhood non-frat places in business!

Ergh, mistake. Eleven is on 11th & 1st.

Someone told me that Eleven is pretty generous with buying clothes too... less tsk-tsking than Buffalo Exchange, etc.

Yeah! The guy working there was super nice and a couple of people asked if they bought clothes too and he said yes, on week days, and gave the customers the store's business card. It all seemed very open and smooth. No hassle. No attitude.

I'll definitely stop by with my nice quality stuff like Alberto Makali tops and the like. The store's clothes quality is very good but I don't want to praise them too much or else peeps may buy stuff before I get a chance to see it! ;-p

No Mention of Outlet 7 closing on 7th as well?? Another retail store shuttered. I spoke to the owner of Outlet 7 a few times, very nice lady. Sad to see her business go!
