‘Orange’: vintage along with current fashions

The city of Tacoma has several exceptional secondhand shops. However, one stands out as remarkably bright and juicy. Orange on Sixth, owned by Laurel Lawson, offers a unique variety of retro resale items that blends the best of past fashions with current styles of clothing. “Vintage clothes are my passion,” Lawson said.
