Faith Austin '50s Handkerchief at Alchemy Vintage

Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: Hankies are happening, people. Whether knotted around the neck or peeking out of a pocket, this is one summer trend we can get behind (unlike these seven that should be avoided like the plague). With multi-colored leaves bursting from its four corners, this olive green 1950s handkerchief by Faith Austin would make a nice addition to a summery ensemble.

Where: Alchemy Vintage

Cost: $7
