Jen Thomas and Jamie Roelofs don’t waste any time. When the two friends were working at a vintage shop in Pilsen in 2011, they quickly decided they wanted to open their own store. And just a couple of months later, Comet Vintage opened its doors in the neighborhood. The shop specializes in vintage clothing (the dress selection in particular is unparalleled) and housewares from the 1920s through the late ’70s—all at affordable prices ($10–$30) in an expertly organized, posh setting.

This is one of my go to vintage shops. It's really one of the best. You can tell the owners have carefully considered what they want on their shop racks and have put a lot of thought into how the pieces function. A few of the tops I had picked up were originally dresses that they altered into lovely tops and skirts that could be sold together or separately. I highly recommend stopping by and checking this shop out.
