Krispy Fringe, Vintage Bazaar and more put spin on vintage shopping

By Cristina Aguirre

In a Lincoln Square boutique, a customer admires a vintage dress with a modern industrial zipper up the side. Holding the garment against her frame, she wants a few adjustments and an antique handbag to complete the outfit. Instead of simply wishing, she asks for specific requests on the boutique’s customer wish list, covered with handwritten desires for typewriters and 1960s Chanel. Kristy Kladzyk and Sara McIntosh, owners of Krispy Fringe, 4725 N. Damen Ave., prepare to hunt down each item. The Chronicle goes inside their shop.
