This cozy store at the Old Fourth Ward’s Studioplex is like a CliffsNotes version of a fashion history book—with stunning visual examples. The variety of designer pieces at Daniel Troppy’s shop, opened in 2010, is impressive, from couture (yes, actual couture) to classic. A Givenchy silk gown in show-stopping red goes for $650, while white Chanel blouses come in at around $300. Troppy culls many designer items from local closets. 659 Auburn Avenue, doubletakerecycledluxury.com
