Great store! I always find something and usually several items. Nice clothes, stationary and lots of unusual items.

Best place for unique finds and thoughtfully curated gifts. Never leave without a pair of earrings. They are ones you'll hardly find anywhere else and always get compliments.

This is a great little local clothing shop. Their shoes are super amazing and you can’t beat their skirts!

You haven't done Durham's 9th Street until you pay a visit to Vaguely Reminiscent. This store is a treasure trove of unique jewelry, hair ornaments, comfortable clothing, fun gifts and the best brands of women's shoes you can find for style and comfort. I bought a pair of red leather Italian made sneakers, compliments every time I wear them. The salespeople are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to help you find that special something. Apologies but above list falls far short of listing all the goodies you'll want to take home.

I enjoyed this beautiful store. I assume she's the owner, but today she went above and beyond to make me feel special, she even came outside to tell me Thank you... I love this place and will be back... It's a cute gift shop..

This place is a hidden gem. I found it by accident when I was in town for a wedding and needed a different pair of shoes. I absolutely love them! I get compliments on them often. I came back today a year later to find it and after some searching online I found it! Just bought a gorgeous pair of ankle boots!

Durham's most unique shop for clothing, cards, gifts of all varieties. Must look high and low in this gem - they've utilized every nook and cranny of their small space in order to carry a wide array. Clothing is not found anywhere else, and they only carry one of each size and color - seize the moment & buy, don't hesitate as the item may not be there when you return!

I loved this unique place. Its quite small but full of interesting items. The only thing I did not like was that the ladies were watching my every move, as if I was going to steal. I understand though, the place is small and they were just watching out for their merchandise. No offense taken. They were very nice overall.

Such a cool little shop! It’s a little tight in there but there are sooo many different things. Could easily spend a longgg time in there looking at everything! A lot of one of kind items- great place for present for anniversaries, birthdays, mothers or Father’s Day, etc. And a bonus is that it’s locally owned for almost 40 years. Shopping and supporting local is so special. I can’t wait to go back again.
