La Rosa Vintage
A Haight gem nestled among tattoo parlors and hemp stores, La Rosa’s an institution for the designer vintage connoisseur. Don’t let the squatters defer you—“No photographs, food, drinks or dirty hippies allowed” is the sign that hangs in the window, figuratively separating this store from the “aromatic” block. Specializing in the roaring twenties and Mad Men ’60’s, rare finds include couture, embellished Christian Dior flapper dress and an actual 1950’s Aloha shirt from the film “From Here to Eternity”. Look out for owners Werner and Cynthia; they’re the expert vintage dealers on the block, guaranteed to meet all your wardrobe needs.
