Nitty Gritty

For those celebrating the recent return of the hit-drama, “Mad Men,” the retro clothing of Nitty Gritty is one way to let loose your inner Don Draper or Joan (Holloway) Harris.

The eclectic boutique hosts a bevy of fashions and accessories from the 1920s-1980s, complete with luxurious fur stoles and beaded prom dresses.

Owner Terri Burt swoons over 1940s fashions with their feminine forms and modest cuts, but appreciates all decades of vintage. “The quality and details are so beautiful. Fashion today is copied – this is the original.”

Nitty Gritty is known for its outrageous costume assortment, with rentals routinely worn on Halloween and Derby (and occasions in between). Next month is the store’s 12th anniversary, which means yet another reason to celebrate.
