History through clothes?

Former History teacher Rachel Hirsch has opened her new vintage shop History. A store that brings history to life through the clothes. Starting with the 40's and ranging all the way up to today's wrap around dresses. Stop by and check it out-definitely a chicer way to learn.

Ever the historian, Hirsch tags every hand-picked item with a short story based on the decade in which it was made and the lives of female characters. One reads: "She looked across the table and wondered how Annie Hall would handle this."
