Philadelphia never fails to contradict. Among the narrow 18th century streets I love so much, there's been - since my first move here in '85 - a hip element looking for their place somewhere between Philadelphia's blue blood and blue collar. Briar Vintage is a good example. Chock full of vintage apparel history for a relative steal compared to NYC, there's also the post WWII kit I wouldn't be caught dead in.
Still, there's plenty of hidden treasures in Briar Vintage -- Just like Philadelphia. I've always said that if Richard Daley were mayor of Philadelphia, he would bring the city back from the dead. Daley wouldn't do Briar Vintage and its owner, David Lochner any harm.
This vintage place is begging to be discovered...When I was there, a couple women walked in and asked if there were women's clothing for sale. "No," said David. And before he could say another word they were out the door. I know what David was gonna say..."Would you just try this hat on." She would've looked spectacular in it.
