Vintage Fashion Shopping in Amarillo
Andrew Evans of National Geographic’s Digital Nomad site is spending the next month or so traveling in the state of his birth, Texas.
One of his first dispatches comes from Rag and Bone Antiques, along the Sixth Street (aka Route 66) corridor of Amarillo, where Keitha Jones and Ash Marie show him vintage clothing. It’s an unexpected, fun, and charming foray.
Indeed, Amarillo is an island amidst an ocean of land. Driving the city’s red brick roads felt like rolling waves and the street of antiques felt like a tidal pool from forgotten America. As I drifted from one store to another, I watched shoppers react to the objects they discovered with delirious joy. […]
After trying on a half-dozen outfits, Ash explained why she shops here, “The fashion in Amarillo is . . . you either buy it at the mall or you buy it used. So usually, buying it used is the better way to go. I prefer it—it’s usually more unique, something that you can’t find anymore.”
I wouldn’t call the Amarillo fashion scene booming but I would call it real.
