Shopping for vintage can be a downright dirty task; rarely are the most crave-able items presented in a clean or even semi-organized state for the true lover of yesteryear fashions. Especially when it comes to footwear, shopping comes down to either stressful online auctions or literally wading through piles of dirty laundry. Not so at the delightfully organized, attractive and well-stocked Lemon Frog Shop. Oodles of well-labeled boots and shoes in every style line the floor, vintage jewels and Gucci purses peek out from corners and the dress racks are categorized not only by price (from $10 to $200) but by size … and they are modern sizes. Micki Curtis, who clearly possesses a knack for finding glorious and irreplaceable pieces, hosts numerous sales throughout the year and is, like the rest of her staff, incredibly helpful and polite. 1202 N. Alvarado St., Echo Park. (213) 413-2143, —Anna Jones
