A couple of wacky sisters-in-law own and run Matilda’s Vintage Closet, a unique stop among the hundred shops In the historic Glendale antiques district – for those seeking 1930s and 1940s glamour fashion. If there’s something special you want from any era, though, Rose and Sandy will be happy to hunt for the perfect piece of retro jewelry (a massive Weiss brooch, perhaps?) or any other wearable treasure. Just be sure to call before your visit. When you arrive, meet the various decked-out mannequins and don’t worry what to call them — all are named Matilda, in honor of the first dress form that ever invaded this successful vintage emporium.
