Retro Revolution ABQ

Hours: Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Retro Revolution ABQ only deals in the good stuff. Find vintage, retro and mid-century furniture, décor and accessories under one roof (and under the curation of a treasure-seeker with a really fine eye).

Off Broadway

3110 Central SE • 268-1489

Hours: Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday from noon 4 p.m.

When it comes to vintage clothing selection, Off Broadway is the cat’s meow. The same goes for the vintage jewelry selection. Or was it vintage hats? Whatever your fancy, Off Broadway’s got it, and the helpful staff will make sure you find what you need in a jiffy.

U Neek Findings

4700 Central • 265-9095

Hours: Every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

U Neek Findings is like the Russian Doll of boutiques. From the moment you walk in the door, you’ll find layer after layer of wickedly neat stuff. The main level of U Neek Findings hosts retro and vintage items, jewelry from around the world, clothing, pottery and even a tiki snack bar. Travel upstairs to peruse the Contempo Man boutique, which boasts some sweet wrist watches and stylin’ tops, and the Deep Purple Gallery for some incredible art and Persian rugs.

Re:tail Thrift and Consignment Shop

4646 Menaul NE • 938-7915

Hours: Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Support Animal Humane New Mexico while stuffing your stockings. Re:tail is more thrifty than vintage, but there are always great pieces on the shelves—especially when it comes to fine china. All the proceeds benefit Animal Humane New Mexico, and you can take a shopping break with the adoptable cats hanging around.
