After just a little over one year, Downtown's House of Vintage is sadly shuttering in just a few days. Owner Felicity Rathbone tells us that her retro fashion mecca — which we named as one of LA's coolest vintage and consignment shops just a few months ago — is officially packing up this Sunday, and she's hosting a major closing sale until then.
"Everything is pretty much $20 to $50, and the higher-end stuff is 50% off the tag price," Rathbone explains. "Most of the fixtures are also available for purchase."
Swing by now through Saturday from 12pm to 7pm, and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm to score the deals and send Rathbone off right. As for what the local talent will be doing next, she tells us that this isn't the last you'll see of her: "I'm planning on taking a break, then will most likely open an appointment-only showroom with a location TBD. Thank you so much for being so supportive of the store! I still love telling people that we were named the sixth best vintage store in LA!"
