Though it opened just this year, the Golden Pearl Vintage stands out among retro shops. Founded by collector Audra Frizzell, who worked Via’s Vintage for a decade, the shop spotlights high-end and hard-to-find pieces meant to be mixed into a contemporary wardrobe. A recent visit turned up a couple 1980s YSL chain-link necklaces and a pair of 1940s-era emerald wool pants embroidered with a silk gold Shriners crest, as well as a stockpile of 1960s furs from the old Dayton’s Oval Room. Replete with Art Deco wall sconces and a 1960s chandelier, the shop itself is as beautiful as its merchandise. 507A E. Hennepin Av., Mpls., 612-378-3978,
