Nestled in a quaint neighborhood just east of downtown Austin sits Charm School Vintage. Located in a converted house, owner Shari Gerstenberger shares this space with other Austin-preneurs, resulting in a unique tenancy that is part boutique, part hair salon and part accessories/wig shop (Coco Coquette).
Due to this cozy arrangement with its retail neighbors, I’d venture that Charm School is poised to become the one-stop shopping destination for vintage-loving glamourazzi (Hair cut? Check. Make up? Check. Vintage sequined blouse? Double check). When you’re done you can go straight to the party!
Also, Gerstenberger has done a great job of securing an exceptionally well-edited (and very reasonably priced!) collection of vintage dresses, skirts, blouses and accessories. By the way, the necklaces and sequined tops are to-die-for. Whether you live in or near Austin, or you’re just visiting, Charm School Vintage is a must-see.
