The Department of History, in Thornbury, was quite the discovery. Cool as ice, but the prices were ever so slightly steep. On the shop's fashion racks, a '70s polyester kaftan - not unlike this beauty I picked up for $25, was 10 times the price! Yup, '70s is the new sought-after vintage, mostly because everything else is gone.
Not to worry, the uber-cool store served as both fashion and interior inspiration and gave an indication of what is hot, what is getting hotter and how much some people will pay for secondhand finds.
