Like wine, clothing styles get better with age and can make people seem cuter and smoother than they actually are. Indulge in a few wearable intoxicants with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of vintage apparel and housewares at Knee Deep Vintage in Pilsen. Knee Deep Vintage is a sartorial time warp, with its space-time fabrics folded especially around the fashion trends of the 1920s–1950s. The helpful staff will guide you through a museum's worth of yesteryear finery, pointing out the 1930s Okie accouterments and 1950s suburbia pieces that can make any steampunk's vision of a Mad Men-meets-Mad Max ensemble a reality. Seamlessly shift eras with Knee Deep Vintage's selection of vintage dresses and skirts ($8–$32), men's dress and western shirts ($10–$20), shoes and outdoor apparel ($10–$60), and enough vintage housewares ($3–$24) to make your domicile feel more like a home and less like the children's tree house you claimed through squatter's rights.
- Knee Deep has a beautifully curated collection of clothing at reasonable prices. One can find stuff from several decades; I picked up a 1950s day dress, a clutch from the 80s, and a "Jayne Byrne for Mayor" t-shirt. Rad. – Elizabeth B., Yelp
