About

How Sweet It Was ... and continues to be.

Founded in 1974, How Sweet It Was Vintage is Tucson, AZ's original vintage clothing shop. In 2013, the founder retired and I bought the shop after 10+ years of shop girl life. Whereas we will always maintain a touch of that original spirit that made the shop so special in the first place; we believe that some change is good. We've let in the sunlight, streamlined the inventory, and are participating in the fabulous world of vintage in a fresh new way. Thank you for stopping by; we hope you like what you see!

    Kaylee is my right-hand woman. Aside from being the manager of our physical shop and main buyer, her input and personality are invaluable to the business.
