Revival Vintage, located in the heart of the North Loop district in Austin, Texas, carries a unique collection of vintage items. Established by Sonia Rife, an avid vintage collector since childhood, Sonia seeks out the best and most affordable vintage pieces for today.

The fun and quirky atmosphere of Revival Vintage showcases a genius mix of vintage home goods and furniture, repurposed clothing and accessories for men, women, and children while seamlessly mixing in a few featured Indie artisans such as:

\Emily McDowell , Fartsy Arts , Liz Potter Photography , The Pink Samurai .

Whether you've had your fair share of digging through piles of resale clothing or not, upon entering Revival Vintage you may feel slightly overwhelmed in how many things you can actually fit into a space (closet Tetris has a whole new meaning to me now!).

As home and fashion items are carefully displayed in tempting arrangements of vintage-y goodness, my eyes sparkled in anticipation as they traced the lined shelves and clothing racks from floor to ceiling in hopes of finding a killer vintage piece to add to my personal collection!

Once the initial and overwhelming shock wore off, I soon realized that there is a method to this madness. That Sonia, in fact, really knows what she is doing here!

Voted 2014 critic's choice for "Best New Kid on the Vintage Block."  Featuring a little bit of everything.  Furniture, home goods, repurposed, clothing for man, woman and child. Throw in a dash of local artists, new gifts and greeting cards to boot!

Revival Vintage has an incredible selection of goods! Whether you are on the hunt for a killer pair of 80's leather pants, a vintage Mickey Mouse t-shirt, a sequin beret for that birthday party tonight, or a luxurious vintage fur - they seriously have it all! Well, except for that sequin beret, I already bought that!

The crew at Revival Vintage not only makes you feel welcome, but they are just as ready to divulge their vintage "hidden gem" shopping secrets as they are to offer you a warm, cozy beverage. 

Sonia's impressive selection of vintage prints and fabrications along with the incredible scenery of hand painted murals and hole-in-the-wall bars surrounding the shop is a sight to see! The North Loop area not only offers you a slew food, beverage, shopping options, and FREE PARKING, it is also the perfect backdrop for a creative photo-shoot as well! 

The colorful backdrop of surrounding buildings and a cemetery were just too amazing to pass up! Revival Vintage and RAD Austin Magazine joined forces to create a Vintage Winter inspired look book-meets-webtorial showcasing how easily one can work in a few amazing vintage pieces into their current wardrobe!

You know, 'casue who really wants to all be wearing the same thing as everyone else?
