Vida Loca Vintage Boutique has recently opened here on the East Side. If you have been to Juan in a Million in the last few weeks to grab some of their breakfast tacos, you might have noticed the flashy new sign. You can read some info below from The Statesman. We haven’t been there but if any of you guys have, give us a shout and let us know what you think.

“With all of the grim retail news out there, here’s a bright spot: East Austin has a new vintage store. Vida Loca Vintage has opened at Plaza Juan Raul, also home to Juan in a Million, Longhorn Bikes and Things She Adores, 2306 E. Cesar Chavez St.

This is the first such venture for native Austinite Blanca Wise, a vintage clothing and costume jewelry “fanatic,” who got the idea for the store after watching the crowds line up for tables at Juan in a Million on weekends, especially after church. When a rental space opened up, the Westwood High graduate jumped on it. “I figured giving it its name would not only give the store some culture, but also serve as a symbol of my ‘crazy’ endeavor,” she says in a press release.

The shop offers men’s and women’s clothing, boots, watches and costume jewelry. The store’s grand opening starts at 9 a.m. Saturday and will feature refreshments.”
