Best Vintage Stuff: Flower Child

At the Flower Child, everything old is new again. The top floor boasts funky vintage relics like ceramics and records and shoes from the 50s and 60s. The downstairs has mens and womens clothes arranged not by size, but by color. And while the department stores are currently flouting copycat retro trends, here you can buy the originals at a quarter of the price -- making this the first time in history that the original designs actually cost less than their counterfeits.
