Last week I ran down to Monroe Avenue, new home of one of Rochester’s coolest vintage shops. Far Out Vintage has moved in the past year from it’s previous location in Village Gate. The store (owned and curated by Michelle Gallo) is seriously packed with great stuff, though you’ll want to give yourself a pretty large chunk of time to really see everything. A little birdie also told me that an Etsy exists with some exclusive designer merchandise.
I was greeted by the mysteriously cool Taryn Vankerkhove upon arrival. The likes of Lana Del Ray, Skeeter Davis/Leslie Gore, and Wax Tailor contributed to the atmosphere while several friendly faces walked in and browsed. Far Out Vintage actually seemed pretty busy despite being work-time during a dumpy rainy day. One word to the wise: come prepared with cash, preferably small notes.
