Roosevelt Row's Sixth Street Block Goes Retro

In recent years, Phoenix residents have fallen in love with all things retro. Historic home tours draw tons of visitors and clothing stores like Hollywood Regency and Mint have capitalized on the vintage/pinup/rockabilly trend.

Now Roosevelt Row's getting in on the retro action with two new stores featuring clothes, trinkets and more from days gone by. The pair will soon be joined by the GROWop, a resale store inside the Growhouse at Garfield & 6th. If you're familiar with downtown Phoenix, you'll probably recognize the signage and the 30% off rack of colorful polyester duds perched outside Butter Toast Boutique.

The shop was formerly located in Paisley Town, the swath of colorfully painted WWII bunkers behind the Paisley Violin on Grand Ave. It was a great space and all, but teeeeny. So when co-owner Jasmine spotted a large duplex on Sixth St. up for grabs, she figured it was time to spread out. "I literally called an hour after they put the sign up!" she quips.
