High school thrifting buddies Annamarie Sanchez and Sarah Bingham’s dreams of opening their own vintage clothing store started way back in the 1990s. They spent most weekends combing small town thrift stores for anything weird, wonderful and wearable. Many a garment in the wrong size for personal wear, but too good to leave behind wound up in the "this will be for our future shop" collection.
This out of control obsession with collecting vintage clothing eventually led to an eBay shop, which then led to selling from a booth in an antique mall. In 2010 the girls took the ultimate plunge in opening a brick and mortar shop in the illustrious Melrose district. After 5 years open, Antique Sugar moved the out-of-control vintage collection to its final home in the Roosevelt Arts District in downtown Phoenix.
Antique Sugar has been outfitting vintage die-hards, environmentally conscious fashionistas, and the occasional costume party attendee since 2010. With over 2000 square feet of wearable and collectable vintage fashions, you'll be sure to find what you're looking for. And probably a few things you didn't know you were looking for.
