I love vintage clothing.

And I am not afraid to say it. Nor am I afraid to clue my fellow enthusiasts in on some cool places to get your fix, both near and far. You may pick up that item I really wanted. That is ok. It will come around again.

So when I take off for a one tank trip weekend, you can be sure I will be hitting "the googles" with that familiar search "vintage clothes near me". I am ever on the hunt for that next grail or something that sparks my interest.

That is how on a recent trip to the Nutmeg State, I managed to take Flight. Or rather, I found Flight Vintage. In my 1991 INXS T shirt and my acid washed Lee jeans, I set out to see what awaited me. Located in the heart of Hamden on Dixwell Avenue, Flight featured some beautifully curated clothing items at prices that were very fair.

Whenever I see a 90s Xena Warrior Princess shirt on the wall next to Wu Tang Clan, I know I'm in good hands. And that was a great way to start my search for the hidden gems that may come my way. I saw some great wrestling shirts and some cool band shirts, but it was all about the soft drinks for me on this day.


I just couldn't pass this up. As a Ginger, this is the ale of my people, eh? Single Stitch on a Screen Stars Best was too good to pass up. Was that last sentence very foreign to you? My apologies. Hit me up on the app and I will be happy to explain.


I am a Coca Cola loyalist. I have sought out a shirt of said brand for a while but have not come across any that really made me want to add to my wardrobe. Until this one. I may end up looking like a refreshing can, but how could I resist?

I will most definitely be going back to this incredible shop. I can't wait to see what they get in on my next one tank trip adventure.

Flip Through the Vintage 1980s Sears Holiday Wish Book

Check out this Sears catalog that I got my hands on. It is actually the 1980 Sears Holiday Wish Book. It is nearly 500 pages of all of the things that you wanted to circle in the book so Santa knew what you wanted for Christmas. I picked out a bunch of electronics, retro toys, hand-held games, roller skates, big wheels, clothes, even a 1980s version of the electronic spin bike. Enjoy!
