About The Nitty Gritty Vintage & Costumes

After founding The Nitty Gritty on Barret Ave in the spring of 2000, owner Terri Burt strived to create a fun regional destination for quality vintage clothing and costuming. Terri is passionate about sharing the history of fashion with her customers and making sure they look their best for any occasion.

Amy Kunzler joined the Nitty Gritty team in 2006, and she quickly became store manager and resident seamstress. She loves the '50's and the '60's and is a huge fan of Doris Day. Amy was awarded "Best Laugh in the State of Kentucky!"
