Best Vintage Clothing Store

B-Squad Vintage

With just the right mix of ironic (and sincere) tees and lovely retro wear, B-Squad's got the vintage formula down pat. In the same visit, you can pick up a vintage Twins jacket, an old-school Sturgis shirt, and a gorgeous '70s jumpsuit without walking more than 20 feet in any direction. Prices at the shop are reasonable and the quality of the goods is impeccable — both characteristics of a vintage retailer with just the right fit. B-Squad also has a hefty collection of records and other vintage memorabilia — from airline messenger bags to retro lamps and furniture. The selection changes often, so don't wait on getting that rad pair of cowboy boots until your next visit. The store just reopened after a short remodeling stint, and B-Squad is still bringing its A-game. The 10-year-old shop is located right next to Honeycomb Salon and Pat's Tap, so if you're in the mood to get pampered, dress up, and go on a date, you've come to the right place. If you're lucky, you'll even get to see the fuzzy orange shop cat lazing among the timelessly styled mannequins in the window.
