Walking into this boutique nearby Mt. Washington you’ll feel like you’ve stepped through time and have been immersed into an episode of Westworld.

Shop owner, designer, and curator Vanessa Dingwell features some of her own clothing designs at the store. You’ll primarily find a bohemian, vintage style celebrating past decades, like the 1960s through the 1970s. Some pieces are designed in the Victorian style, and most pieces are one-hundred-percent authentic and handmade. The embroidered pieces are particularly impressive and beautiful.

“…the storefront’s surreal hand-painted mural is an invitation to shop in a magical vintage fairy tale, think Frida Kahlo meets Gram Parsons in the desert of the Joshua Tree…”
-Vanessa Dingwell, https://honeywoodvintage.com/
The mural described above by the shop owner was designed and painted by the artist Chuy Vasquez. It features a Native American on riding a horse through a desert landscape. Beautiful butterflies and flowers frame the front of the doorway and the mural marks the opening of the store in 2006. In the photo above, Dingwell and her boyfriend Charlie Overbey are dressed in the bohemian and ethnic fashions (i.e. Mexican and European wardrobe, jewelry, and objects for the home) curated in the store.
Browse the online store to view the types of items offered and curated by Dingwell, including dresses, handbags, bracelets, ponchos, cowboy hats, earrings, shirts, skirts, antique bags, halter tops, hawk hats, smock and maxi dresses, and folk vests.
