Moondance Vintage Clothing, that is! Since I've been driving up and down the east coast for the last month in my never ending search for fabulous vintage clothing for my customers (and, of course, myself), I decided a short detour to St. Simons Island, Georgia, was in order. I enjoy stopping there for a day to rest up before driving the last leg of my trip home.
St. Simons, a quaint resort community, is part of what's known as the Golden Isles, which include Jekyll and Sea Island. Now I know how vintage lovers are always looking for new places to shop. So I'm going to reveal the location of Georgia's best kept vintage secret. Tucked away at the end of the main street is a great little store called Moondance Vintage Clothing, owned by my friend, Bobby Brown. He's got an eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary casual clothes, handbags, shoes, jewelry and collectible record albums. His selection of men's vintage clothing is pretty impressive, with an emphasis on cool vintage Hawaiian shirts.
I took some photos of his place so you can kind of get an idea of what's inside.
See that pretty blue 50's party dress in the front? It'll be listed on my website sometime soon!
Rack of men's Hawaiian shirts.
Awesome embroidered boots from Turkey. He's got them in different sizes and heights, with various designs.
Rack of ladies' vintage blouses and tops.
Men's vintage pants.
Fun vintage straw purse.
So if you're ever in the area, hit the antique malls in Brunswick, then jump on the causeway over to St. Simons Island. The water views on the way over are magnificient. Beautiful live oaks, dripping with spanish moss, line the roads on the way into the town center and at the end of the block, be sure to stop and say hi to Bobby at Moondance. After you're done shopping, head across the street to his deco inspired soda fountain, ZuZu's , for one the best burgers in the area, along with an order of his hand cut fries and a root beer float.
