Making one’s own clothes requires corralling a herd of sheep, feeding them rainbows to dye them different colors, and hiring a professional hairdresser to braid them into sweaters. Cease the tedious tribulations of makeshift clothes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of stylish new and used apparel and accessories at Cherry Bomb, located right across from Doo Wop Shop at the lively corner of Bardstown and Bonnycastle.
Cherry Bomb shines a spotlight on stylish vintage clothing, but also carries a selective smattering of new garments from local lines such as Inherited Leather and Laura Fauna, as well as bath and body products from Biggs and Featherbelle. Men can slip into vibrant polyester disco shirts if they've got Saturday Night Fever chills, or they can contact their inner cattle psychic via western shirts and belt buckles. Women can peruse a full rainbow of barely-or-never-worn denim skirts, tank tops, blouses, jewelry, and purses until they uncover the perfect piece of distinctive wardrobe gold.
