My Favorite Dinosaur: Sounds like it's a kid's shop. I wouldn't think "vintage" if I saw that name.

Vinegar Vintage: Like you, I LIKE vinegar, the name makes me think of Salt and Vinegar chips, or that tangy smell of vinegar, but I'm not sure it'll attract business to your store the way you want.

Sweet Frites Boutique.... Doesn't say anything about what you sell. If I was in a curious mood, I may stop in to see what you had, but it wouldn't "grab me" and scream "COME IN COME IN AND BIUY VINTAGE."

God bless!
I like Verily Vintage!! That goes well together.

I don't like any of the original choices. Nothing pops out and screams "come in and shop!" I would keep brainstorming

Re: Wrestling with name for vintage shop

I don't like the first or the third. I really like Vinegar Vintage. Hearing those words together doesn't make me think of the taste or smell of vinegar, altho I might be the only one Instead it conveys more the idea of sharply and distinctly cut... as in, sharp and distinct flavo & smell translates as sharp and distinct personality, makeup lines, hair style, clothing style, colors. I think it works well But that might just be me

Oh, I like "Sweet Frites Boutique" the best. It rhymes, it sounds cute without being too cutesy, it's easy to remember. When I'm on etsy I don't really look at the shop name before the product anyway. Plus it's not too specific since you'll be selling a number of different items.
