Didn't you used to be...?

Funky Finds Vintage & Retro has had the same name and ownership since we opened in 2012. Our entrance used to be on 18th Street before the building was renovated. In 2020, we were temporarily located on Ingersoll during our building's renovation. 

We are not affiliated with the vintage clothing store that was once in our current space, but we love to support other small businesses (you can still shop Dorothea's Closet online!)
