Best Vintage Clothing 

Legacy Antiques and Vintage Clothing

"Are you on a mission?" proprietor Linda Bowman asks first-timers here. That's because a lot of her customers are. They might need a knockout 1960s tennis dress for a garden party or a little beaded number for New Year's Eve. They've come to the right place. Two of the three floors of Bowman's century home are filled with gently worn vintage clothes, with special emphasis on the 1940s through the '60s. On a recent trip, we found a fitted, hot-pink lace dress -- suitable for an evening wedding or cocktail party -- for $50. And for $40, a white cotton lawn shorts set with navy piping and matching skirt -- something Jay Gatsby's Daisy Buchanan might have worn when she wanted to feel especially babealicious. Our favorite, though (alas, it was out of our price range), was a hand-quilted patchwork robe in vivid oranges, reds, and blues for $175.
