Season's Greetings From Downtown Threads!

Posted December 18, 2014


Tis the season for egg nog, friends around the fireplace, tree trimming, and of course, swapping your cute summer wardrobe for warmer wear. This winter when you’re shopping on the Church Street Marketplace, you won’t have to sacrifice style for warmth when you come up to Downtown Threads!


This year we have our first ever in-house, hand-made local artist “ugly” holiday sweaters, just in time for the party season! They jingle, they twinkle, and they can be custom-made just for you! Simply send your request to our Facebook Page!

If you’re struggling to cross off your Christmas list, we have tons of new and local artist jewelry that make great gifts for those special ladies in your life. For the gents, we carry a wide selection of vintage band and motor-cycle tees, retro hoodies, fleece-lined drug rugs, and rad sunglasses. For those aunts, friends, and significant others who are impossible to shop for, we carry gift certificates as well! This season, give the gift of fashion!


Winter has finally settled into Vermont, bringing with it mountains of snow and bitter winds. That chill isn’t going away any time soon, but that doesn’t mean you have to resign to blending in with the snowbanks and naked trees.


This time of year, people tend to bundle up and dress dark – we’re talking muted grays, beiges, and anything black. We’re here to help you break out of these boring fashion “trends” and shine!

We have racks of warm thermal leggings, wool flannels, rad 80s jackets, and Cosby sweaters!


Here are a few tricks to stay warm with style when you shop at Downtown Threads this season:

LEATHER and DENIM: Denim always has been a fashion staple, whether it be denim vests, high-waisted “boyfriend” jeans, or jackets. Although this material is timeless, what can you do to change things up, switch from summer to fall to winter without spending a fortune on MORE denim pieces? PATTERNS and COLOR! Pair our vintage Levis with a sheer top, knit cardigan, and your favorite pair of leather boots. Feeling bold? Our new and vintage denim vests are a perfect way to tie together a long-sleeve top and our hippie pants and leggings! 

BOLD PRINTS & PATTERNS: OOOOH BABY! There's nothing we love more than a little - okay, a LOT - of funk when it comes to clothing. After all, you're dressing to stand out! We know, we know. You're not supposed to mix patterns and stripes. Blah blah blah. If there is any time to get crazy, to push the limits of your creativity, it’s when you’re creating your own style.

Besides, big prints, animal sweaters, and lots of patterns are the easiest way to stand out this winter! You can even pair a neon 80s or 90s jacket with thermal leggings, a fuzzy sweater, and those Uggs you can’t seem to take off.

Come up to Downtown Threads at 108 Church Street for new dresses, winter accessories, vintage you’ll wear every day, and all the hipster crap you’ll ever need. Have a happy holiday season!
