Very Vintage in Verona
Montclair resident Colleen Connell has just given us another reason to shop: her new store, Vintage Alley, in Verona. It’s only been open six weeks and the sign isn’t up yet, but Colleen has a great variety of old and new retro style merchandise neatly on display. As eclectic as her collection is, she pointed out there is something for everyone. We liked browsing through the vintage look tees, cool furniture, lighting, housewares straight off the Austin Powers set, those seventies sun glasses, and a ton of other fun stuff. It’s the kind of place where you’re likely to find an item or two that brings back childhood memories. We found my mom’s chartreuse metal tray, hammered aluminum bowls, and the gold fondue pot.
Appropriately located in an old bowling alley just off Bloomfield
Avenue, Vintage Alley also has a retro looking back room available for art shows,
receptions, and birthday parties. It's a quick drive over the hill, and
shoppers who mention Baristanet will receive 10% off their first
purchase. Open Wed-Sat 11-5, until 7 p.m. on Thursdays. 5 Fairview Ave,

Very cool store -- I spent an hour in there this weekend and could have bought half the place. Colleen is one very cool gal.

Is this a rerun article or am I going insane? (do I smell toast burning?)
I'd swear I read this post a while back.

Also check out Dusty's Antiques - next to the Clairidge Movie Theater. Great vintage jewelry and artwork - just scored a FABULOUS mother's day present.

Colleen is delightful and I think the shop is fun. I bought plant stands last week and they were such a great deal.

Off topic, but ladies, where can I go to get a trendy shortish haircut? I've tried both Esthetica and Bangz, but I wasn't pleased with either...

Parlor Hair Studio rocks -- nice people, cool space. Tracy is awesome for cut and color...

Just moved here in March from Manhattan and had to find someplace local for a hair cut and color. I had seen so many comments on Barista about the Parlor Hair Studio, so decided to go there. I'm so glad I did. Tracy was excellent! She gave me the greatest hair cut and color. Far better than what I was getting in NYC. I am so happy! I would highly recommend going there.

Thank you all so much! I wasn't sure where to ask, so I hope it's ok I did it on this post. That vintage store looks fun. I'll definitely check it out!

I have very short hair and have had 3 great cuts from Joe at Esthetica. Let us know how your cut turns out.
