Be prepared when walking into Sharks Vintage to be overwhelmed. You might want to walk over to the Pete's next door and get a coffee first: you may be shopping for awhile. Although perhaps lacking in space, this adorable Telegraph boutique makes up in quantity what may be missing in square footage. Every available inch is crammed full of amazing retro finds at surprisingly affordable prices - this is the East Bay after all, not one of those over priced San Francisco deals.
What impressed me the most about Sharks was the range of styles and types of clothing offered. They not only carry your typical selection of cute dresses and cardigans from the 50's and 60's, but there's an entire shelf of just boots, a huge selection of retro shades and accessories, and a wide range of eras to choose from when selecting your vintage attire. My favorite finds were an adorable 1960's cream lace doily dress with brown velvet trim (which looked surprisingly like the Jovovich-Hawk for Target collection) and an adorable neon pink t-shirt dress which would be perfect for the touches of neon that are a must have this season. Pair it with last year's leggings or skinny jeans and you have an outfit.
