Best Place to Frolic in the Vintage: La France

The door first swung open in 1974, which makes the vintage shop, La France, vintage itself. Proprietress Jill Wax created a truly rare shopping experience in Ybor City that is equal parts stroll through history and fashion fantasy. With decades upon decades of style to browse, from long ago through the present, and a stellar team of fashion aficionados, a whirl at La France is time well spent. Each acquisition holds a memory, whether from days gone by or yours in the making. 1612 E. 7th Ave, Tampa, 813-248-1381.
