Night Bird Vintage Clothing Store in New Hope, PA

Night Bird located at 12 W. Mechanic St. in New Hope, PA sells vintage clothing ranging from the late 60s to to late 70s. The store is well organized, clothes are well kept, and everything is fun to look at. They have a lot of t-shirts from concerts and tours as well as hard core 70s get ups (bell bottoms and acrylic collared button ups). The store is what I imagine the wardrobe room on the set of “Boogie Nights” looked like.

It’s a really great store though and offers more men’s vintage clothing than I have seen at any other store.

Vintage heroine saves the day

Walking into Love Saves the Day in New Hope, PA is like walking back in time, not only to eras ranging from the late 1800s to early 1980s, but also into my bedroom when I was in fifth grade. What my father would call a pigsty, but really just a cluttered mess of clothes, toys, and memorabilia.

The two-story emporium of vintage items, mainly clothes, showcases merchandise draped from the ceiling, posted on the walls, and folded in trunks on the floor amongst antique furniture and arcade games. While the clutter may overwhelm some visitors, there is a unique sense of organization to co-owner Leslie Herson’s madness.
