I LOVE this store for vintage fashions. The gentleman who works there is so helpful.The owner of Eons is very involved in the community and very generous in his support of the local arts scene.

when I was in grad school (mid-90s) there was an employee who was fabulous, helpful, knew stock really well and would go above and beyond to help. (plus, she was hot. sometimes stopped in to buy stuff just 2c her. hey kristine!)
Anyway, please keep in mind that a small shop with small # of staff has to spread selves out. Be nice to them and, if you have a very specific target item, maybe even call ahead to give heads-up that you're looking for, say, a man's powder blue tux in whatever your size is. Maybe they have it tucked away somewhere and can pull it for you. But if you show-up on a Sat afternoon when it is busy busy busy, the 1-2 sales staff won't be able to give you that level of service.

not to malign salvation army but never ever say salvation army in the same breath with Eons- they are not the same.
salvation army is a "thrift" store= free castoffs being resold. good place to go if your primary concern is cheap...maybe that halloween costume that you don't want to pay a lot for since you're only going to wear it once.

Eons is a vintage store: high quality antique clothing, many one-of-a-kind. Owner has discriminating taste for style and quality: there is no junk. Many items are in original packaging/original tags and have never been worn even though they are 40+ years old. This a place for fashionistas. Eons is the shop to find a 1930's Bridal gown in mint condition or a cocktail dress that Jackie-O would have loved. then there are Club clothes, club kids, need I say more?
Plus, Clothes are dry-cleaned before being offered on the sales floor.

Eons is fun and worth every penny.

Pros: one-of-a kind vintage fashions

Cons: we miss that cute little lesbian kristine

Love this place! It can be a little pricey, especially if you are more into Salvation Army or Goodwill, but WORTH it. If you are seriously looking for an outfit to wear TONIGHT this is it!! You can get the outfit, shoes, jewelry, etc. etc. But if you are a 'mall' person this isn't the place for you. I wouldn't say that the people that work there are going to go out of their way for you, because they aren't. But, if you know what you are looking for and are willing to sift through a few things- do it by all means. Then you can visit the great tapas bar down the street~~~

This jam-packed maze of a vintage store might be off-putting at first, but once you get in there, its a blast to navigate. Look EVERYwhere, because theres so much to see. Like any vintage store, you might have to wade through a bunch of so-so stuff to find that gem, but if youre going to find it anywhere, it would be here.
