Just a short walk to Lower Haight is Revamp, specializing in authentic vintage styles from 1910 to 1950. This swanky boutique stands out among its neighboring second hand shops. Local independent designer and owner of Revamp, Anne Marie, definitely targets the Swing Set with clothing for both men and women. Some elegant evening gowns are strictly for a night out of dining and dancing, while an accessible day line fits both work and play situations.
The store itself is spacious and its black and white tiled floors allow serious swingers to try out their skirts for proper dancing mobility. On the other hand, if you're floundering in retro know-how, Revamp offers one-hour seminars covering fashion, beauty and behavior on the decade of your choice. Custom designs and alterations are also available along with vintage accessories and collectables from pin-up girl postcards to silver cigarette cases.
