LADIES!!!! I'm in Indiana! And the BEST antique/vintage mall that I've found thus far is Exit 76 Antique Mall! Edinburgh, Indiana! There are some GREAT finds! AND, it's a huge place...compared to other smaller shops around the area.  MUAH! ;o)

Hi everyone! I'm from Minneapolis.  We have a pretty great selection of vintage.  I haven't ventured to the St. Paul side of the world to shop vintage yet but in Minneapolis I love Via's Vintage, Blacklist Vintage, B-Squad Vintage, and JoJo's Retro and Vintage.  Oh, and we have something called the Mall of America - hello Bettie Page store!

Hello ladies! I'm originally from Southern California but have been living in Kansas for almost 4 years now.. when I first moved here I did most of my shopping online until I found this great little shop in Kansas City called Retro Vixen! My favorite PUG piece has got to be the doris top :]

Hey all! I'm from Saint Paul which, like Minneapolis, has some great vintage spots: Lula, Go, UpSix, and Succotash - three of which are on the same corner - it's a dangerous place for a retro-lovin' lady to bring her wallet ;) We also have Heimie's Haberdashery and Barbershop, so a lot of our local gents rock the classy, retro-inspired style too. It's a pretty swell place to live!

Going Vintage shopping at Atomic Garage and Vintage HIll and Ragstock here in Des Moines today. Any other ideas for Des Moines or new DSM stores?

Also still looking for a vintage hair dryer, thoughts. The thrift stores haven't had any and they seem to be so pricey online.

Hello lovelies!  I moved from Northern California to South Dakota in 2008 and have remained a loyal PUG customer via the internet.  We don't have much here in the way of high quality, fashionable clothing for the modern pinup gal, but I make do with what I can find.  Make sure you head to Deadwood late August for Kool Deadwood Nites - a 50's themed car show and outdoor concert with fun rockabilly bands.  I'll be there driving my hearse in the parade!

Comment by Fanny Freckles on May 13, 2013 at 6:20pm

I have a hearse, too, Hillary!  What make/model is yours?

Comment by Hillary Hutchison on May 13, 2013 at 6:32pm

Nice! Mine's a 67 Cadillac, Black with purple flames :)
