Blast Off !!! Vintage is a true vintage clothing store in SE Salem.
But vintage clothing is far from all that they sell. Located on Commercial St south of downtown, the shop is run by friendly true vintage experts Katie and Pete. Do clothing and accessories, vintage skateboards, vinyl records, stereo equipment, and music shows go together? Yes they do!
First there are the racks of clothes.
No odor, curated by the owners who’ve been in the business for many years, and offer a wide variety of items. We saw packed racks of clothing all in great shape. A “Jackie Dress”, a “super 70’s” hooded full length coat, 1980’s looking pieces. There are shoes, men’s vintage clothing, jewelry, and accessories, like purses and hats, too. The owners’ knowledge about their inventory, style periods, and the history of sizing was impressive.
Then there were the throwback skateboards.
A rack of skateboards. All in good shape. Long boards, and others. We got the impression that they will service them to your needs, as well. We saw a case with trucks for them and other parts, too.
Like vintage vinyl LPs and stereo equipment?
They have neatly organized bins in a variety of titles for you to thumb through, and vintage stereo equipment, too. The owners are constantly bringing in more. They check them for quality and operation, naturally. If you don’t see what you need ask them. They often have others that they can bring in for you to check out
Blast Off !!! also produces music shows and sells tickets to them right in the shop.
