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 focused on menswear, and then expanded to also having women’s attire. He then began renting clothing to costumers for many Hollywood movies. In 2011, the shop was bought by 3 young men with hopes to clean it up and make it what it once was. In 2013, Tim Willig and Ashley M Beaufille Cook purchased the shop. It has now returned to its former glory! Tim and Ashley have focused on acquiring the best vintage clothing for all ages and genders with clothing ranging from the 1800s-1990s. They are happy to provide unique finds to those who love wearing vintage day-to-day, and for those looking for a neat outfit for a themed party. Casablanca Vintage also works with fashion stylists and designers in the fashion industry, and costumers for both theatre, and film.
