A Flea-For-All favorite opens up shop in Westbrook


Cait and Jess, owners of the vintage shop Lucille’s, have always been avid thrifters. It wasn’t until they met a few years ago that their luck seemed to double when they would go out vintage hunting together. Since two heads are better than one, they decided to put their hunting skills to good use and start selling vintage wares at a small market in Brunswick and eventually moved their booth to Portland Flea-for-All (which is where I discovered them and fell in love!)

After outgrowing their booth at the flea and in need of more space to reupholster furniture and get their craft on, they decided to rent a space on  625 Bridgton Road in Westbrook. “We always knew we wanted a shop, because we wanted a space that we could curate exactly how we wanted, so we had been sort of looking since late 2011, but didn’t find a space we thought worked well and fit in our budget,” says Jess, “Until we found the space we’re in now.  We love this space because it has room for shopping space, and we have a big ole workshop, and storage for all of our vintage hoarding needs.”

Not only do the ladies of Lucille’s have a great eye for feminine, vintage pieces, but they’re crafty too. The walls of their shop are dotted with hand-embellished sweatshirts, bow tie clips and handcrafted necklaces. If you loved their booth at the flea, their shop is a treasure trove of kitsch that you must check out.

And if you’re super duper lazy, you can always shop Lucille’s via the interwebs and check out their etsy shop.  Their blog is super cute and crafty too.

And don’t worry fellas. They have vintage clothes for you too. But I was clearly too busy “shopping” instead of “reporting” that I neglected to photograph that. Heh. They also offer custom sneaks from local artist Aaron Nason.

 You can also find Lucille’s on their Facebook page. Go check them out this weekend!
