Kitschy tees, 70's dresses and a whole lotta polyester at little ghost vintage

The jig is up. I am a self-professed  addict when it comes to vintage shopping in Portland. If you haven’t stopped into Little Ghost Vintage (477 Congress Street, enter on Preble Street), which opened this past May, you are missing out. I stopped in on a recent Sunday to start scouring their stacks for some Christmas presents. I figured I may as well shop for myself a bit too.

Walk in the store and hit the wall to your right if you’re on the hunt for vintage dresses. The collection here runs the gamut, from mod shifts to 70’s maxis.

As you make your way towards the back of the store, you’ll want to comb through her racks of vintage tees. Here’s where her collection really shines. If you know a guy that loves band shirts, vacation tees and the like, this needs to be his new favorite store.

The selection here isn’t limited just to clothes. There’s also hooks of jewelry along the wall, bins of records and tchotchkes for your home. And if you love Mrs. Brady-esque blouses, (raises hand) than look no further.
It’s going to be a long winter in Portland so make sure you stop into Little Ghosties and check out the always rotating selection here. For store hours visit their facebook page and if you’re more privvy to online shopping, you can check out their etsy shop. A little birdie also told me they often have sales for their social media followers, so share, like and tweet away!
