These boutiques offer fun, funky, fabulous fashions that can't be found at any of the city's many malls or chain outlets. Shopping at vintage women's clothing stores is a great way to support independent local businesses in the greater Orlando area and to contribute to the sustainable culture of reusing, recycling and repurposing.
