Former fashion-photo producer Maya Marzolf opened this charming antique home décor shop in May 2009, at the waterfront end of Greenpoint Ave. The vibe is part New England gothic, part steampunk, from the rough-hewn plank floors and pressed-tile ceilings to the industrial odds-and-ends available for sale (railroad ties, vintage copper flashlights). Marzolf scouts her stock from around the Northeast, ranging from tables, chairs, dressers, and mirrors to candlesticks, door knobs, and drawer pulls. The hand-painted walls are lined with glassware, china, fans, lamps, and vintage kitchen appliances—cherry pitters, mayonnaise makers—that may be more useful as modern-day decorations. For a dash of vintage glamor, there are plenty of ladylike trinkets and accessories, including enamel opera glasses, mirror-and-brush sets, and porcelain pitchers and wash bins. A smattering of giftworthy new items are also mixed in with the old, like quirky letterpress cards, linens, scented soy candles, and small matted prints.
