There's a renaissance happening on Castle Street, with antique shops and vintage boutiques popping up along the 600 block. Relics and gems from the past are celebrated on this side of town, and you never know what classic piece you'll find to update your wardrobe. We discovered a staple pencil skirt, circa 1960, in a floral print and found multiple ways to wear it using thrifty finds from the shops of Castle Street. VIntage mavens and budget fashionistas, take note.
