Where to spot a cool shop
By Jen Aronoff
For a New South city that's long turned its eye to the future, Charlotte has had plenty of choices for shoppers interested in looking in the other direction - to the past, for one-of-a-kind antique and vintage items.
Of course, it helps to know where to search. So travel beyond the region's gleaming malls and abundant big-box centers, and let's see what else is out there.
One corner of the vast space is home to Kitsch-y-Cool Vintage, which stocks standout, reasonably priced men's and women's clothes and accessories - including hats and jewelry - from the 1940s onward. Polyester slacks, '70s plaid shirts, housecoats, bowling shirts and dainty dresses that look like they walked off the set of "Mad Men" mingle on its racks, and seasonal selections appear throughout the year (such as ugly Christmas sweaters, just in time for your Christmas party).
