Time is irrelevant at The Stash on York, a Highland Park vintage clothing shop that presents styles from the 1920’s to the 1990’s. Owner Kiki Stash curates a fine selection of clothing, both classic and timeless, plucked from wardrobes, closets and trunks.
“For me, the most important feature in an article of clothing is that it is made well, utilizing high end fabrics, and good design,” says Stash.
Capes, gloves, and tall hats dot the walls at the shop. Fine evening wear for an elegant night out cover a mannequin. Shoes with heels, flats or buckles call out from niche displays, representing an array of selection from across several decades. Stash feels that her inclusion of multiple generations is an extension of her own fashion sense.
“Growing up, I spent a lot of time at flea markets which fostered an appreciation (some might call it ‘obsession’) for vintage. My style changes every day depending on what fabulous items I pull out of my closet.”
Along with clothing and shoes the Highland Park shop also carries home goods created by independent artists from around the world, along with jewelry, purses and other accessories for the sophisticated woman.
“I have always had an affinity for York Bolevard,” says Stash, who sees the wealth of history in the area as another selling point for her vintage clothing shop
