Field Trip: ReRun

7001 Carroll Ave
Takoma Park, MD 20912

If PollySue’s makes you think of the 50s and 60s, then ReRun will put the 70s in your mind. The store, recently moved to a smaller location a few doors down on Carroll Avenue, has a serious hippie vibe, from the selection to the décor. There’s a lot of recent stuff too, so rest assured there’s something for everyone.

For some of the finer things that ReRun has to offer, expect to pay a pretty penny. Long gowns ranged from $100 to $200, although some of the items noted on our visit were newer and not from recognized brands. However, the gowns were clean and in good condition. ReRun has a healthy coat selection for men and women, and boot lovers can find funky styles sitting above the racks of clothes.

Keeping the Woodstock and disco years in mind, stop by the large rack of records by the counter for a trip down memory lane. While not as cheap as records at a larger thrift store, these are all in good shape. And you can’t even try to tell me that rifling through old records isn’t fun, even if just to laugh at the last generation’s hairstyles.

ReRun isn’t a place to go wild and stock up for each new season. Moreso, it’s a place to go hunting for that diamond in the rough that you can get excited about every time you put it on.
