Posh Retro


Savvy has been shopping vintage and coveting clothing castaways ever since she can remember. She’s used to scouring crowded racks for a great find, even if the racks are dusty and the items, ahem, are less than clean. She’s not used to finding such things in an airy, elegant setting with sheepskin throw rugs on the floor, vintage Vogue posters on the wall and a crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling. But that’s the way Posh Retro rolls. Charming owner Amber Ivey offers previously owned men’s and women’s clothing, shoes and accessories and donates 15 percent of her proceeds to Mission: Launch, which helps formerly incarcerated people re-enter the job market. The store also hosts private parties where you and your BFFs can try on clothes while celebrating a birthday (get that Martin + Osa LBD before somebody else does). In that case, Ivey donates 20 percent of the proceeds to the nonprofit of your choice. Good deeds and good duds?  Now that’s an old-fashioned idea. Saturdays, 10 to 5; otherwise, by appointment. 1003 Light St., 443-687-9070, http://www.poshretro.com
