Echoes of Time

There is an inexplicable shortage of good vintage shops in Hampton Roads. This is one of the few. And it’s a damn good one. They have a great selection of all the major periods of clothing. The racks and display cases are packed to the rims with stuff. I used to be a bit of a vintage freak.
 
When I first moved here I sold a few items to Echoes of Time for some extra cash and they gave me a fair deal.  In addition to vintage, they also have a lot of replica costume items: clown noses to ’50s specs to disco platforms with goldfish in the heels. It is THE go-to spot for funky Halloween wear to rent/buy. If there’s something in particular that you want for a costume, however, make sure to reserve it early. They are super busy at Halloween.
 
They rent all year ’round, even for their regular vintage items. I once rented this great ’60s satin skirt for a dress-up party I had at my old job. I had something really unique to wear and I didn’t have to pay a fortune for the privilege of having it hang in my closet for the next 10 years.
