This is such a fun place to visit. Not only is there a tremendous variety of items in the shop, but the displays are very creative also! Something always manages to come home with me. Owner Charlana i...s sweet and great to work with. As an added bonus this weekend, her cousin was deejaying and providing great music while we browsed. Highly recommended —- If you are visiting downtown Mobile, check out Flashback!!!!! See More

This place is full of items that give off a special aura, and make you wonder what sort of story they have to tell. Every time I visit downtown Mobile I have to stop by and let my curiosity run rampan...t as I look through and pick up a thing or two. Charlana (the owner) always makes me feel welcome with her intellectual, southern charm. See More

Every time we visit our son, we have to visit here too. I love that you always have hats and I'm the proud owner of several. Not only is this a fun place to visit, the owner is the highlight. She rec...ognized me after only visiting once and remembered my love for hats thereafter. this place is an absolute must see when visiting downtown Mobile. Can't wait to visit again soon. See More

Such a special place downtown, but mostly because the owner, Q, remembers you and welcomes you with warmth every time you enter or leave. Also an extremely well-curated collection of unique items for ...any and every space in your life. A must visit. See More

Just driving by, I was taken back by the amount of quality vintage material in the store. I knew that I had to go in and take a look. Upon walking in the store It was like taking a walk into an old co...untry/blues/Motown store. We were greeted like family. Such a great place to get lost and spend a few hours of quality time.

Sometimes you have to be in the middle of something to appreciate it.
And I appreciate @visitmobileal
and understand better the work they do and the amazing results.
This guy standing to the right whose name escapes me but I certainly know his face and voice from escorting visitors around downtown Mobile, speaking with love and sincerity about her charming attributes. .
And of course, @stacyrhamilton, (not pictured because she took this pic), whom we all know lives and breathes our #hometown and there’s no way I can say enough about her! She’s the best!
Because of @visitmobileal and the #tourists they bring, whom have walked through the door of BackFlash and the many doors of Mobile as a whole, we thank you and are grateful for your dedicated work! We see you!
