Vaux Vintage closing Weathervane location to go back on the road

Thrift shop Vaux Vintage started as a nomadic venture, as owner Aly Barohn traveled the country with her vintage garments. She opened a brick-and-mortar location above the Weathervane Cafe last summer, but has decided to close it in order to go back on the road. And so the shop will disappear after a moving-out sale this weekend. "I'm moving out to do more pop-ups around Denver and nearby cities," Barohn says.

Barohn has been running Vaux Vintage online and at pop-ups and flea markets for more than five years. Last August, she decided to open a physical shop at Weathervane, a coffeehouse where she already spent a lot of time working on the online portion.

But the true nature of Vaux is to travel, says Barohn, a self-proclaimed wanderer who will continue to run the shop online while she travels around Colorado with her vintage attire. "I prefer to be on the road because I'm able to interact and sell to more people," she explains. "I can sell at various markets or do pop-up shops in towns that are right next to each other but reach out to different types of customers. I love meeting all the unique people who buy my stuff."

Starting this Friday, February 28, Barohn is holding a moving-out sale at Weathervane; everything in the shop will be 20 to 80 percent off through Sunday.

After that, to stay informed on Vaux's whereabouts, follow the shop on Facebook, Instagram, or join the mailing list.
