Debbie Wirfs loves her the vintage. A Seattle native, she’s lived in Italy, California, and most recently Miami, where she started buying vintage clothing and selling them online. But she says she missed talking to people, seeing them try on the clothes, so decided to expand into the material world.
Drawn back to Seattle, she set herself up in the Fremont Sunday Market and Atlas Clothing, but wanted something a bit more permanent, a store to call her on.
Thus, several weeks ago, she opened Indie Frock in the little nook by the front stairs of Wallingford Center.
She stocks her shop wherever she can find it: ebay, thrift stores, and the occasional trips the the “rag shops” of LA. Mostly vintage, she also carries a few contemporary brands, and tries to include some men’s clothing as well as women’s.
Stop in and say hi.
