There are so many good resources out there for vintage shopping, especially in the New England area, that I like to give a shout out once in a while to a local who’s really nailing it. I found fellow Bostoner Kennedy Holmes’ Etsy shop via friend Alice Saunders of Forestbound about a month ago. Holmes certainly has a knack for finding effortlessly cool pieces that really give off a Claire Daines in My So Called Life vibe (I’m a sucker for nostalgia). She also keeps the price points reasonable which is always refreshing in a day and age when vintage can demand a rather hefty price tag just for the sake of being vintage. Above are some of my favorite finds that she currently has listed on her Etsy Shop (how amazing is that American Flag top!?). I recommend following her twitter for updates on additions to the shop and checking out her very sweet blog.

Only a few talented individuals have the gift of being able to find a diamond in the rough. Especially when it comes to vintage. They can sift through the piles of old moth-eaten sweaters and discover a Baracuta. They can push aside the rotting crock-pots and find a classy retro thermos. Sure I don’t know if this is what Brian has to deal with in order to find the amazing pieces sold in his Etsy shop Wooden Sleepers, but he sure is talented at offering up a perfectly edited selection of classic vintage clothing, retro kitchen items and cool doo dads. My personal favorites at the moment are the Upstate Crewneck (nothing wrong with rocking the Brett McKenzie look) and the Woolrich Horses Flannel.
