Vintage clothing will occasionally stop time for its wearer, creating the chance for the delight of a days-long kiss and the menace of a weeks-long sneeze. Play time like an accordion with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of vintage apparel at Tweaked & Yummy.
Tweaked & Yummy curates one of the largest selections of vintage men’s and women’s clothing in Okanagan Valley, making retro pieces of wearable fashion available for purchase or rental in a cozy streetside boutique. Plaid pants ($35+) chill on metal girders above wood-panelled floors, while, like Donald Duck, rows of hanging disco shirts ($35+) prove that great style does not require pants. Suit up with a pair of '50s-style shoes ($26+) or a piece of handcrafted jewellery to subtly accent a contemporary outfit with time-tested style ($16+). Perfect for wooing nostalgic sweethearts and closing deals from within the trunk of a Coupe de Ville, a midcentury suit ($135+) remains the ideal complement to a midcentury prom dress ($135+) for a time-travelling date to the drive-in movie or root-beer-float stand.
Tweaked & Yummy hosts monthly art shows for local artists with live music and refreshments and recycles retired clothing items into the tags and bags used in the store, minimizing waste and keeping shirts from falling into a life of button thievery. Additionally, customers will get 25 per cent off all purchases during their birthday month.
