Tilly Vintage Boutique in Andersonville

Some of you may know of my passion for fashion and of my continual quest for affordable clothing and accessories.

I recently bought a consignment dress at another establishment that came without buttons or cuff links for the French cuff sleeves. What to do?

Walking my dog this past week, I popped my head inside the door of Tilly Vintage Boutique in Andersonville and asked the salesclerk if they had cuff links. “But, of course,” she said. I returned with the dress and without my big furry dog.

The salesclerk brought out trays of cuff links in both feminine and masculine styles. There they were: the perfect match for my evening dress for just $19.

There are shelves of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, hat and purses plus dresses, jackets and clothing from different eras that hang from the ceiling and walls. Weather permitting, mannequins and a clothing rack in front of the store beckon shoppers within.

Tilly’s used to be on Lincoln Avenue where I found an authentic evening gown in excellent condition from the 1920’s. The store is smaller in its Andersonville location, but continues to stock amazing fashion finds. Who knew recycling could be such fun? Or rather upcycling, according to owner Susan Lynch!

  1. Sorry I could not hear your last show featuring songs by Karen Akers. She is one of my very faves. She is one of the first singers Carol and I saw at the Algonquin Hotel. Good memories.
    I also enjoyed watching The Jinx. Durst is one strange dude. I watched the entire doc in two days! I think I have an addition problem.
