This vintage mecca has been peddling men’s and women’s clothing and accessories since 1978, serving clientele as diverse as Alexa Chung, Marc Jacobs and Cyndi Lauper. Owner Laura Wills travels the world, scouting eclectic finds that span the 1950s to the 1990s, and organizes clothing racks by decade. Do you need sunglasses from the ’70s? How about a royal-wedding T-shirt from the 1980s? Head upstairs to check out higher-end specialty garments like men’s Moschino printed suit jackets ($595) and Hattie Carnegie satin cap-sleeve dresses with beading ($895). The boutique is transformed into a Halloween showcase for the month of October, and since the staff is made up almost entirely of stylists, it's a great place to put together a complete period look, including the era-appropriate wigs and accessories.

I shopped at Screaming Mimi's this weekend, I'm attending a Great Gatsby theme party and at Sreaming Mimi's I was ( hooked up ) taken care of ! Somewhat pricey but, you get what you pay for! The service was awesome! I will recommend this place to every one! Thanks Laura ( owner ) whom I met the for the first time when I walked in. And to her staff. Awesome stuff guys!
