If you're looking for a suit, call and find out what days Barbara, the seemstress, buttongirl.barbaraevans@gmail, is there. I hate shopping, but Barbara made it super easy and fun. Within minutes she had a suit picked out, according to what I was looking for, and was quick to grab me a shirt that fit and provide a number of ideas how to make the suit fit even better. If you don't find something you like in your size, she'll help you fit into the suit you want! (within reason)

The suit went from one I was okay with, since I had to wear a suit, to being completely pumped out of my mind about it and looking forward to wearing it as soon as possible. When she was done tailoring it, it went from looking like a $145 vintage suit to a $800 classic suit. She thought of everything and was not only helpful, but really funny and fun to work with. Thanks again for everything Barbara!

When my sister told me that her upcoming wedding was to be in the 50's style wedding I was more than a little apprehensive. You see she's a great person but she can be more than a little particular when it comes to period fashion and since she lives in Georgia I felt more than a little bit intimidated when I entered Avalon being a guy who knows nothing of fashion. I couldn't have chosen a better place, Barbara and the rest of the staff there was incredibly knowledgeable and you could tell that everyone there really cared about the clothing and wanted to make sure I was really happy. I ended up with a great suit that my sister loved and a little more confidence in my fashion abilities. I'm not very knowledgeable about vintage shops but they seemed to have a great selection of outfits all in top quality. My experience at Avalon was wonderful and I plan to go back often.

I had a great experience at avalon -- getting a snappy vintage tuxedo for a fancy wedding. The staff were very friendly -- patient and helpful as I bought my first tux. They didn't mind my 5 year old turning the dressing room into a playroom as I tried on many items. Barbara did a wonderful job tailoring my suit, even though I left it to the last minute. Prices were reasonable for a distinctive suit. At a wedding with many NYC fashionistas, several people told me I had the "best-looking tux"... Thanks, Avalon -- I'll be back

While I often find the staff to be somewhat crass, I simultaneously find them to be rather endearing. I'd shop here more though if they had a better selection. I keep trying, but still haven't ever found anything to buy there.

I am an avid vintage clothing shopper but both times I've been to Avalon I left feeling put down, unfashionable, and unwelcome. Both people who have helped me while shopping there were snooty and rude to me and whoever I was with. The second time I was in the store I tried a dress on that ripped a little bit on the seam. I felt horrible, but when I told the counter person he made me feel even worse and, on top of that, he made several rude and sarcastic comments while I was still in the store and within earshot. I was prepared to spend money in there, but I'm afraid I'll probably never go back.

We went in looking for a specific era suit. We found many to choose from. Tim was very helpful with advice about the suit, shirt, tie, and shoes. We ended up purchasing a suit and tie that are exactly what we needed.
