There’s no better place to shop for authentic vintage than these side-by-side shops owned by Kristine and Robert Houston in Old Towne Orange. Fans from all over the Southland and the world come to Joy Ride for menswear, with its trove of rehabbed vintage hats and medical oddities. And they come to Elsewhere for womenswear that includes silk kimonos, dresses, and jewelry. The Houstons’ encyclopedic knowledge of fashion and apparel history is a bonus.
