Best Of 2018

The art of thrifting demands patience, but a little less so at Julie’s Inspiration Consignment Shoppe, where you’ll find a wide selection of vintage items dating from the 1920s-1980s, along with modern men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, art, collectibles and fair-trade soaps. The fabulous coats and bold jewelry are reason enough to stop by, but the at-home feel Julie and her husband bring to the space is as rare as their collections. Located in the heart of Covington’s historic MainStrasse Village, Julie’s is surrounded by independent eateries, bars, a yoga studio that offers classes with cats (aka The Flying Cat) and beyond. Julie’s Inspiration Consignment Shoppe, 608 Main St., Covington,
