New Bohemia Mania

New Bohemia is definitely a must-stop shop for those in search of great vintage clothing in the Austin area. The store features clothing and accessories for both men and women.

For starters, the store is huge. This is a huge advantage due to the sheer variety of clothing items that they can have in stock.  Everything from boots, to full-body slips are available. This sounds like something you would say about any vintage store (i.e. the whole point of the store is to have a variety of items inspired from the past). But New Bohemia really does have everything. So much so that the store is sectioned off into characteristics and then by era.

Clothes from the earlier eras

For example, one side of the store features clothing from the 40s, 50s and 60s on one side and clothes from the 70s and 80s on the other. If you go to the side featuring earlier eras, you’ll find a rack dedicated solely to summer-type dresses. Then, if you peruse the rack, you’ll notice that those dresses are then sorted by sleeve length. The same method is used for the “sparkle” section which happened to be one of my most favorite parts of the store.

Dresses sorted sleeve length

I think that this was definitely a stand-out characteristic of the store. You also felt very welcome seeing that men and women of all ages were shopping there.

So, if you want a place in Austin that features a large variety of vintage clothing, you should definitely take a stop at New Bohemia. You can visit the New Bohemia Yelp Page for more information.
