So Rare

During the four years I’ve lived in Atlanta, I’ve searched high and low for a real vintage store–a place where I could find some truly unique pieces to wear around town and for when I performed with my band. I went to Psycho Sisters and all the thrift stores. I traveled within a 50-mile radius around the city and never found any place that had precisely what I was seeking….And then it happened.

I was having brunch at the hip and homey Watershed, savoring the delectable brunch item I had chosen that Sunday morning, when I glanced across the street and saw a little storefront that was chock full of interesting items – decorative things made of iron and wire for the garden, little pieces of cool furniture, and a plethora of other things I couldn’t make out from my side of the road. I knew at that moment I’d get lost in there after brunch.

I was amazed at the collection that the owner had placed in this store. So Rare carries paintings and prints, glasses, wall cabinets, gorgeous costume jewelry, and best of all…authentic vintage dresses. Everything had that wonderful hand-picked sense about it. I could tell that a lot of care was put into selecting each and every piece.

I found kimonos, colorful mini dresses from the 60s, flowing silk pants, and old school sequins 20s-style tops. I actually found 5 dresses that that fit me perfectly and are just right for spring and summer. I was most pleased that the owner had picked dresses that were not cut for Skinny Minnies…such had been my luck at other vintage stores.
