Sometimes vintage shops are overwhelming; even the savviest shopper can be daunted by racks and racks of polyester. But at the clean and well-kept Pretty Penny, there's variety without making a vintage vixen's eyes glaze over. While the Rockridge boutique may cater to the hip California College of the Arts crowd, anyone can find a frock (or two) to twirl around in. Stocked with everything from eyelet sweaters to leather loafers, miniskirts, and sunglasses, the store can add wonderfully quirky pieces to any wardrobe — male or female. And for those who prefer to shop at two in the morning in their pajamas, Pretty Penny also sells its goods on Etsy.com.
