If you've visited the second hand/vintage shop downtown called Leechpit Vintage, you are familiar with their slogan: Keep Colorado Springs Lame. After a visit to check out their wares, I'd have to say that is pretty accurate. With the exception of the fun and creative storefront, there's not much else to recommend it.
They are big on vintage clothes -- in fact, I'd call it a clothing store more than anything else because that's what makes up the bulk of their stock. With a side of vinyl, some jewelry, and a few toys and collectibles. There are a few housewares, but I'm really not sure why/where they're going with that. Prices are high, but the stuff is nicely displayed -- for example, the jewelry and scarves are sorted by color and that makes them pretty to look at.
And, seriously, where else in town can you go to find new in the package, 1970's Andy Gibb bubblegum cards?
Visit Leechpit Vintage at 802 N. Nevada Avenue, Colorado Springs, or online at leechpit.com. They are open noon-7 pm, Monday through Saturday.
