Together, Retrospect-Vintage Fashion and the Downtown Partnership are celebrating making the finalists in the "Calling All Dreamers" competition, with a vision to open a sustainable vintage clothing store in the heart of downtown.
Our mission is to bring vintage style boutique to Downtown Sacramento, because the city is growing rapidly we need our fashion to represent the events in the area, such as the McQueen exhibit at Crocker Art Museum, or The Nutcracker or festival outfits for Golden Sky Festival or Concerts in the Park. By partnering with the Downtown Partnership, we hope to contribute to the revitalization of the downtown area and provide customers with an enjoyable shopping experience. Winning the "Calling All Dreamers" competition would allow us to bring this vision to life and make a positive impact in the local community. We have the opportunity to feature and grow our brand at events such as Golden Sky Festival, Manhattan Vintage Show, Farm to Fork, Concerts in the Park. We have sold our clothes all over and would love to share our retro journey more.
