A stuffed bear that my grandmother gave me when I was little. While I do love the bear (I still have her), remembering how happy it made my grandmother that I loved the gift is what I treasure.

We pride ourselves in finding great, high-quality vintage pieces from the 1920’s through the 1980’s.  Some pieces that we are especially excited about are a Member’s Only jacket with tags still attached, a pair of leather Keds, and our wonderful tie selection. Many one-of-a-kind gifts available!

Where is your favorite place to eat in Downtown Madison? If you can catch it during the day, downtown Madison has an amazing food cart community, offering such an amazing variety of food. And then you have the standard in all things beer, cheese and Wisconsin at The Old Fashioned.
