NEW! Pop-Up Vendors - changing your experience each month

Rare Threads is Open for Business!

We are serious about your safe shopping experience within our store.

In order to protect our customers we ask that everyone who enters wears a mask that fits properly below the chin to above the nose.  We will be providing gloves so that you may touch the merchandise.  If you are really interested in trying on a garment you may, but if not purchased it will be quarantined for 72 hours to protect others.
