In a little shop near the Westroads food court, shelves of pastel-dyed high-waisted denim shorts and well-worn canvas Converse sneakers await shoppers ready for warm weather. So do racks of floral skirts, cotton dresses, swimsuits, men’s short-sleeved button-down shirts and other items shaping up to be staples of spring and summer 2013.

Most afternoons, the small shop draws young women in printed tights, cutoff shorts, vintage-looking tops and similar styles, who peruse the racks as, say, Madonna plays on the stereo. In the mornings, older mall walkers stop in, drawn by fashions they remember from decades past. Stumped shoppers in need of a gift visit in hopes of finding something unique as the fashion-forward look for perhaps a skirt or jacket that no one else in Omaha has.
