Behind yawning glass windows and a buzz-through antechamber, Eclectiques is stuffed with antique curios from floor to pressed-tin ceiling. A stand-out assortment of vintage Louis Vuitton luggage, from suitcases to steamer trunks, dominates the collection. There’s also chic vintage apparel like sable coats, fedoras, and brightly-patterned neckties, as well as more offbeat fashion finds like an English-style Hermes saddle and a Belgian leather motorcycle suit. The back of the store holds furniture, a smattering of “Adams-style” curved-socket lamps, birch wood chairs with needlepoint upholstery, and South American religious woodcarvings. The oblong glass cases in the front of the store showcases small, luxurious trinkets from decades past: silver-clasped Daychron watches from the 1950s and 1960s, heirloom pearl necklaces, ivory folding fans, and opera glasses inlaid with mother-of-pearl.
