Olio Vintage Fun 380 Alvarado St., (831) 375-6546. W-Sat 10:30-5:30, Sun 11-4.
Operating inside the historic 1849 Osio Adobe, this boutique purveys 1950s items--think rotary phones and vintage sewing patterns. The appealing adobe is one of the few still standing on this street and is a good example of a two-story adobe with a cantilevered balcony.
