Buy Vintage at LuLu Boutique & Gifterie

April 15, 2014 11:42 am

Even before you step inside, the cute turquoise bricks and blooming flower boxes outside of LuLu Boutique & Gifterie hint at what's inside: an array of stylish, colorful, and unique items. Founded by two female friends with an aptitude for everything fashionable and, self-admittedly, "weird," the Phoenixville boutique stocks everything from vintage dresses and earrings to "lightly worn" tops and purses.

Here, you might find an antique brooch studded with sparkling gems, a vintage brick-red bird cage to adorn your home, or a white beaded purse with 1960s style. The owners can help you navigate the decades' worth of wear they have in the store, from a classic '40s-era dress to a pair of flashy neon '80s earrings. And they accept lightly worn clothing from their customers in exchange for cash, so you can drop off some of your old designer duds in good condition, and then treat yourself to new ones.

Austin City Limits
Broadcasting live from eclectic, artistic Austin, Texas, Austin City Limits showcases music legends and up-and-coming artists from a wide range of musical genres.
