InPrint: Local vintage store offers a cure for your wardrobe woes

Tweaked and YummyTuesday marked the first day of summer and as the sun is (finally) shining its hot rays down on the Okanagan, it’s time to break out the summer wardrobe! In doing so you might find that last year’s collection of clothing just isn’t doing it for you anymore and you find yourself with nothing to wear! Yes, it’s time for some sunny days clothes shopping.

But before you splurge at the mall and buy a whole new closet full of garbs that you’ll most likely see on someone else every time you go out (let’s face it, Kelowna shopping is limited), I suggest you take a stroll downtown and head in to Tweaked and Yummy Vintage Apparel on Ellis St.

Located right across from the Cannery Lofts, Tweaked and Yummy offers up a wide selection of unique vintage pieces that will add a fun and bold addition to anyone’s armoire. Oh, and another reason to drop by: it’s local!

Owner Stacey Huculiak started up Tweaked and Yummy in 2009 after a lifelong dream of owning an eclectic little shop (Everything Yummy being the name of choice) featuring vintage clothing, an artist studio and a coffee shop. Stacey, along with husband Steve, had Everything Yummy in mind as a retirement plan but with the downturn in the economy, Stacey was laid off from her job and couldn’t find other work so she took the opportunity to make her dreams a reality and Tweaked and Yummy was born.

So whether you’re looking for that perfect summer dress or just for a new downtown locale to check out, visit Stacey at Tweaked and Yummy Vintage Apparel and visit often as you can be sure to find great new pieces each time you pop by.

Tweaked and Yummy Vintage Apparel is located at 1292 Ellis St. in downtown Kelowna. Visit www.tweakedandyummy.com for store hours and information.
