In due course, online vintage store La Petite Mort will be opening its first brick-and-mortar shop here. That is, if you consider ’80s and ’90s threads vintage…

La Petite Mort began as an e-commerce (and Etsy) endeavor specializing in women’s vintage-wear, but owner Kara Mullins apparently felt the time was right to open a physical location. “The internet was too small for us,” she quipped on the Facebook page.

The boutique will feature both men’s and women’s throwbacks, plus a small selection of modern jewelry, tights, sunglasses, and other accessories from local designers. Grand opening is schedule for Black Friday – November 29.
