I really think Bygones is the best vintage. I really enjoy how much they have expanded over the years. I love that I can get my new sunglasses there in the summer as well as a vintage 50's picnic dress. It is the perfect place to go to find a good gift too! They are always so helpful and stylish there. Keep up the good work guys!

best vintage store in Richmond. Totally a throw back to lower east side vintage in the 80's. It is that good. Plus they have a lot of product that is not vintage. Sunglasses, hats, locally made stuff. I can't believe someone said they had bad customer service. They are the cutest and most helpful of anywhere. Go for Christmas gifts!

Pros: playing dress up

Cons: only one of them

I found alittle toy hat that was just perfect for a 1940s tea.

The store had the very best from Richmond's best stores like Miller and Rhoads and Thallheimers.

Ver pleasant experience

Bygones is just FANTASTIC! It is well-lit and the garments are all in fantastic condition. We had just come back from New York and were thrilled at the prices. Best of all, the store is very well-lit and the staff were quick to point out the [few] flaws in some of the garments. This is a very big help!

Yes, the prices were abit higer than the dim, dusty place across the street, but this reflects the time and energy needed to sort through the vast piles of junk that are found in estate sales and auctions. This is a very nice store.

Most people consider Bygones Richmond's quintessential vintage store, and although Bygones does have some good vintage, in the spectrum of vintage stores it's lacking in customer service and realistic prices. First of all, Bygones is a well-operated store- they don't need your business and you can tell the second you walk in the door. Every one that works there is ambivalent or oblivious to you unless you clearly want to buy something, in which case they put the hurt on you to buy it and get out. Second, the prices are insane. They sell reproduction clothes at the prices that most other local vintage places sell, well, vintage. While the prices are crystal clear, it's occasionally difficult to tell what is repop and what is not. So with they pricey rates of the reproduction clothes, the cost for the vintage clothes is generally inflated. Bygones is nice, but there's definitely better nearby vintage if you're willing to look.

Hey Shoppers, Yes, this is a great shop, fantastic selection, they even have vintage new items, that is, clothes made new but on the style of the old stuff. Beautiful.
I would shop there time and again, but only if I do not have to special order something. If you see it there, buy it, new or old. But beware if you must special order something.
Here is why.
I had a wedding to attend. I found the perfect dress at Bygones, and needed a different size.
They said it was not a problem to get my size, in plenty of time for the event. I offered a deposit, none was taken. They assured me the order would go through. It did not. I called 4 times, and no dress. Each time I was told it was on the way. The clock was ticking to the wedding time.
There was no follow through on this, I was shuffled from person to person, nobody seemed to care...I had money in hand , and wanted to purchase. I suppose they just did not take me seriously. I did not get that dress, and had to rush over to ugh, of all places a mall store and buy my second choice dress, not being able to find anything else like the lovely garment that was supposed to arrive at Bygones by their caring staff. Obviously, they don't care enough. Nobody cared to call me that finally, they got the dress...well after the date of the wedding. I may have purchased it still, but since I had to call them, just to see what happened, I was more than a bit annoyed at the poor treatment I was handed.
I have not been back since, but I yearn for the old stuff , so I may give them a try again. I have several purchases from there, I guess they don't remember that I was a returning client. Too bad for them, I am sure that I would have spent many dollars in the time that I have avoided their shop. Wonder how many others there are like me.
However, it is good to try again, and so I will. Wish me luck!

Pros: Lovely environment inside, great selection

Cons: The staff (or owner) only pretends to care. Actions (in my case) spoke to the opposite.

Bygones has a great selection of vintage clothes from all over the spectrum -- the silly kinds of things you'd want to wear to a costume party and the classic things that you can't buy anymore but wish you could -- it's a great store to buy gifts as well -- from classic bits of jewelry to home items from bygone days!

Vintage clothing can be found at no better place in richmond than bygones. ok maybe your grandma's closet, but that doessnt count really. Other than being located in the best place in town (GO CARYTOWN!) it offers a vary wide variety of vintage items from hats to shirts to shoes to postcards. So next time your waiting in line for the byrd, check out the little shop next door. YOu wont be disappointed!
