Downtown St. Pete gets another vintage resale shop
One of these days I'm going to spend an entire weekend along St. Petersburg's Central Avenue. I swear every time I drive along that road, there's another store that pops up, catching my attention. So much to explore!
Anyway, the other day I stumbled upon a new vintage/resale shop in the 900 block of Central. Yay!
REHAB takes up the space formerly occipued by the Obama campaign. The shop, which has only been open a few weekends, still has that new smell. Floors are polished, everything is in its place. Thay haven't even had a grand opening yet (but it's coming soon, they assured me).
The store is stocked with a mix of gently-used designer items (like the pink sequin alice+olivia mini I spotted for $269) and vintage stuff at a more reasonable, Deal Diva-ish range. They also consign.
If it sounds familiar, it should. There's also a REHAB location in Tampa. (Check out their facebook page here). But the word about St. Pete's arts and vintage scene (hey, I can brag about my city) is getting out.
REHAB store manager Jessica Manthei said the Tampa location is doing well, but owners wanted to get a foothold on this side of the bay.
"We wanted to do a vintage thing in St. Pete," she said. "This city has such a cool vibe."
I can dig it. I always have room in my heart for more shopping destinations, right?
The store is open from 11 to 6 Tuesday - Saturday right now. Check it out.
