Smile Back Vintage, a vintage store that specializes in what I can only describe as 90s gear for Zoomers, left their location on Lyndale Ave S in September and headed for 720 Washington Ave SE in Stadium Village.
The store has an impressive collection of t shirts, jackets, hats, and more, and have a claim to one of the best retro sports collection of any store in town. Here's a small sample of their selection:
In an Instagram post following the announcement of the move, the founding team said in part: "Smile Back is coming to the U of M!!! First off we would like to say thank you for the last two years of support at our uptown location! ❤️ It’s been an amazing ride but we have decided we have bigger things planned here on campus! With out y’all we couldn’t keep setting out new goals!"
They opened their Lyndale location in December of 2020. Prior to that, they were located in St. Paul.
