Captain Betty's has a great selection of vintage in a wide range of sizes, just about every piece deserves a second home in a vintage-lover's closet. There's product in every nook and cranny and quite the men's selection to boot.

I live out of town and was in Delaware for a meeting. I was on my way back to my car to head home and noticed Captain Betty's. The store's name was intriguing. Then I spotted the gorgeous clothes in the window. I couldn't resist. I was barely inside and Betty quickly came up to me, introduced herself, and gave me a wonderful tour of her store. Stopping there on the spur of the moment turned out to be such a very special surprise. Betty then let me browse on my own, politely offering to help if I needed any assistance. It wasn't long before I found a gorgeous full-length coat that was just my size. I paid for the coat and Betty invited me to come back again very soon. She is about to expand her store. I can't wait to visit again soon. This is why I'm on the internet to learn more about Captain Betty's! It was great!

Pros: Unique and Gorgeous Vintage Clothing, Hats & Jewelry

I have been missing this store since we moved back to Columbus three years ago. Captain Betty (and she is the CAPTAIN of her store) has been involved in the Columbus vintage clothing scene for decades and definitely knows her stuff. She is a flamboyant, charming, outspoken character...even curmudgeonly in the best of ways. If you are a newbie to vintage shopping, she can spot it and will do her best to educate you. Trust her...she will find the perfect thing for you and can fit you better than you. If you have been to her shop a few times...and she will recognize you..she will let you wander and point you towards the trunks and drawers to dig through...treasure troves all. Shopping at Captain Betty's is an experience and plan on at least an afternoon of exploring. I think her prices are very reasonable...the quality is superb and you can find any decade of clothing you desire. My best story...two days before my wedding I had nothing to wear. I had seen a kimono in her shop that I had fallen in love with. I went to the store just a few minutes before closing apologizing...thought it was a day that she was open later. Explained the dilemma, apologized, told her I would come back tomorrow. I again spotted the kimono which she had decided to keep for herself. I understood. She walked me through the store suggesting dresses. I was in love with the kimono but understood it was off the market. Went back the next day and she told me that the kimono would be mine, helped me find the perfect underdress and I got a very good deal pricewise. Go to visit her...she can be your vintage hero, too.

Pros: Best vintage selection I have ever encountered...it's like an archive of style.

Cons: Store hours not always optimal...but Captain Betty owns it. She can be open when she wants!

After searching all over central Ohio I have finally found a great vintage clothing store. Although it is about 30 minutes outside of Columbus it is worth the drive. Captain Betty's has about seven rooms of clothing and accessories and although I was not looking for mensware she has a great men's selection which is very difficult to find. All of the clothes are beautiful and look hardly worn. The biggest draw for myself though is Betty herself, she has a vast knowledge of current and past fashion and really takes time to educate her customers about vintage fashions. I felt like a little girl playing dress up and I cannot wait to make another trip out there this weekend! What a find!

Pros: Helpful Staff, wide range of choices...decade choices range from the Victorian Era to th 1980's.

I love you Betty!
I have family in OH and when visiting Cols. I always make a special trip to Delaware just to check out her latest stash. In fact, I have made created several devotees of my visiting friends.
Believe me, it doesn't get better than Betty...

Pros: From a vintage scouter, this is THE gem

.

Captain Betty's was far better than I ever imagined. The variety of clothing, jewelry, purses, belts, and hats is incredible. The clothing isn't cheap, but reasonable. The woman who runs it was helpful and I didn't feel she was rude at all. She is a character however and may say what she thinks to other employees in the store. I didn't feel that she was too pushy but offered to help me with whatever I was looking for. As soon as I left I couldn't wait to come back in with my room mates.

Pros: Selection, Service, Location

Cons: Cramped, Pricey, Only open mid-day

CAPTAIN BETTY HAS BEEN IN THE BIZZ FOR DECADES. SHE KNOWS HER STORE LIKE THE BACK OF HER HAND. SHE DOES NOT FORCE PEOPLE INTO SLIPS. SHE SUGGEST THAT THEY WEAR THEM TO PROTECT HER WONDERFUL CLOTHING. SHE HAS SOME VERY RARE ITEMS INCLUDING JEWELRY, CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN. SHE IS A VERY SPECIAL 70 YEAR OLD LADY WHO DEMANDS RESPECT OF THOSE THAT VISIT HER STORE. IT IS A VERY SPECIAL TREAT TO SEE HER IN HER MIST OF TREASURES.

Although Captain Betty's has a wonderful array of beautiful vintage clothing, the customer service I recieved was the worst I have ever experienced. Betty was EXTREMELY rude and pushy from the minute I walked into her store, and by the end, she had forced me into wearing a used slip around her store, and insisted that she dress me since I obviously had no idea how to treat good vintage clothing. I treated her clothes with nothing but respect and gentility, and there was no reason for her to treat me so rudely. The clothes are also very very expensive, so skip this vintage nightmare, the customer service literally can't get worse!

This store has very unique items to choose from. The owner gets items from all over the world. Some items are expensive but so worth it because you will never find another piece like it. Even if you are not willing to buy it is fun to just look.

The Scene
The blink-and-you'll-miss-it storefront in quaint downtown Delaware belies the size of the store within. The shop is narrow, but goes on seemingly forever. There's a mind-boggling amount of clothing in here, hanging on…
