Owner Marissa Johnson calls her stock “vintage for the people”—funky, wearable designer duds at lower-than-market prices: $22 YSL shirts, $20 linen jumpers and plaid shirtdresses, $30 Marc Jacobs wedges, and $50 wool coats. Pairs of slouchy, slightly scuffed boots lining overhead shelves go for $40—a fraction of the price you’ll pay at Daha or Narnia up the street. The shop buys, sells, and trades for its coolly curated collection, and doubles as a hangout for stylishly clad, perpetually hungover neighborhood regulars, who converge on the shoebox-size space for monthly concerts and parties.
