Established in 1985
Since 1985, Casablanca Vintage has been the place to shop for everything vintage. In its earlier years, the previous owner George Di’Lorenzo rented clothing to costumers for many Hollywood movies. January 2011, the shop was bought by 3 young men with hopes to clean it up and make it what it once was.
In June of 2013, Tim Willig and Ashley Marie Bowman purchased the shop. With 13 years of working at Casablanca under his belt, Tim Willig also owns the shoe repair within the building. Tim and Ashley are focusing on stocking clothing from the 20s-70s (of course we still have gems from the 80s and early 90s!) and filling the racks with unique and good quality vintage garments. The shop is separated by type, size, and decades are written on the tags. And of course, Tim and Ashley are here to assist you!
