Best Vintage Clothing: The new style is fashion compassion
At Twisters Vintage, owned by the glamorous Heidi Spanier, the sales rack out front will lure you in and the new arrivals will make you spend. Situated within one block of many other vintage stores, Twisters boasts an abundance of merchandise for men: sensible-collared shirts and designer slacks go well with its wide selection of cufflinks, belt buckles, and bowties. For the ladies, there are breathtaking dresses fit for cocktail parties, costume balls, or prom night; affordable jewelry includes magnificent clip-on earrings from $8, and snazzy clutch purses for $20. If you're looking for '60s and '70s clothing with an emphasis on designer and affordable, the cream of the crop is here. Twisters is also part of the East Bay Style Collective, which is hosting a June fashion show in conjunction with Magnet, Dolled Up Vintage, Herringbone Apothecary, and others. The best part is that all the profits from ticket sales go to charity, and the participating businesses will stay open late that night.
