A number of local vintage dealers have popped up over the last few years, but our favorite is Lauren Lail's Library: Archives of Fashion. The bubbly blonde collector boasts an anthology of mint-condition pieces from the 1950s and '60s. She has a knack for finding designer goods - like a quilted Chanel purse and Ferragamo pumps - along with more affordably priced clothing and accessories. When she's not selling her wares in local shops like Pearl, she occasionally hosts sales out of her beautiful home on Rutledge Avenue. Coastal Living named Library one of the year's best online boutiques. Lucky for us, we can shop her collection in the flesh.
