Here's a Yelp review from Valissa W. from Melbourne, Australia. Find more reviews of Westerville's retro shop here!
"If I were ever going to open my own store, it would be just like A Gal Named Cinda Lou: Part vintage, part local lore, heavy on the sass. Do NOT touch that bubble record player unless you have $450, but uh, go on and try on that dress. Yes, the green one. It'll look great on you!

Cinda Lou's looks like Urban Outfitters would if it weren't a corporate trust fund kid trying so hard to be cool. I'm talking authenticity, peeps. Cinda Lou has the mod furniture, but instead of $400 for a recreation, that dinette set is all-original and only $50. 1960s frosted glassware? $15 for 6 cups. Any scarf or belt in the drawer is $4. And if you're not into retro, check out the fun & afforadable tees and misc artwork from local artists.

As if all those fun finds weren't enough, the entire back room is teeming with records. Vinyl isn't really my thing, but based on the rest of the store I have a hunch there are some quality treasures to be unearthed.

If you can make it as far as Polaris, you can make it to Old Westerville, and if you're in Westerville there's absolutely no excuse for passing up this adorable shop.... until the day comes that I finally open my own, that is ;)"
